|Lesson 4's Hard & Soft's Edges Piece - this one is gong on MY wall!!|
(Please excuse the post's title - its my homage to Dr. Suess who celebrated a birthday this week!)
Sooooooooooo .. . . . . we're onto Lesson 5 where Katie P-M's wants us to study cropping a photo to find the interesting spots. If you've been reading, I love to edit me a photo! I mean, am I the only one that thinks all these little photo editing app's are a gift from God? You can take your favorite inspiration photo - crop it - manipulate it - and then use that to guide you into your next masterpiece. In fact, sometimes you can totally manipulate it so much that the original subject is barely recognizable! How cool is THAT?!
For this lesson though I didn't want to get all excited with just little bits of interesting photos. I decided I wanted to explore my fascination with vintage neon signs. Now there is nothing I would like more than to drive around the country collecting photos of signs, but since a girl has to work for a living, I relied on Pinterest for inspiration. Obviously, I'm not the only one who sees the charm in these bits of the past!
Katie reminded us that as we were cropping, not to forget the lessons on composition we learned in the last two months! So I studied many, many signs. AND I cropped many, many, signs. I'm not ashamed that maybe, I got a little carried away!! I finally had to narrow it down to handful so that I could finally choose 1 to do!!
I wanted to share them with you - so you could give your advice on which one you think is the most interesting!!
So which would you choose???
