Light, Brindejon Part 2

Last week at Brindejon, we got to see leaves changing color and the glorious light coming through the leaves. And then I got to play with the pictures using Snapseed. My Dad was amazed at one could do with the software.

Here’s a couple of the pictures (before and after). More will follow.

First, we’ll start with a leave. Because the IPAD camera has almost no controls (totally point and shoot), the original needed to be cropped. I shot the photo knowing that fact. It’s amazing how much removing the extraneous stuff helped.



The next photo has 3 different views. First is the original. Second is my attempt to highight some of the features. The third photo would make a wonderful painting. My dad did this one using Snapseed. He had never played with the software before, but that didn’t stop him from pulling together a great art image.




The final picture is only going to be shown in the cropped state. I liked the way the shadows pointed down towards the tree.



Author: Heres to ART not Cockroaches

Welcome to my life. My life as a mom is changing as the kids grow up, leave home, and build their own lives. This gives me a chance to rebuild myself as an artist, develop a spiritual path, and most fun of all, start going out on dates with my husband. Come here the stories about the small things in life that can make one very happy. Dogs running on a beach, great breakfast dates, kids and their adventures, and my own adventures in this wacky life. I'll share some of my progress in learning art while juggling a full time job as an engineer. And best of all, it's a chance for me to practice writing stories while keeping in touch with my kids. I look forward to hearing from you. Comments, thoughts, and invitations to meet for coffee are all welcomed. Enjoy the stories.
