Hello, its me again! I want to show you the background work behind one of my favourite photos. This one was taken in early November when the colours were still fairly vibrant. Funny thing is I ended up converting this picture to black and white. Here is the final image:
I was having a very creative-feeling-kind-of-day. I hadn't had that feeling for several months so it was very exciting.
I drove past this field and was drawn to a stand of trees. It wasn't especially interesting but I saw something in it that I couldn't describe at the moment.
I continued shooting that day... and got many wonderful images before I had to return home.
Once home I put it up on the screen. I mused over it.. and for fun put it in black and white.
This looked very appealing to me. I stretched the perspective, then added some "painterly" effects. Here it is one more time:
I then printed it on some delicate parchment paper - I would show it here but the photo on parchment is now hung in a gallery!! I hope you enjoyed seeing the creative process. - Susan
