photoshop fun ...

So tonight has been spent on my computer ... deep in the world of photoshop having fun! yes fun, a word i never thought I'd use in relation to photoshop but I'm having a wonderful time experimenting with colour & feel & photographs!

So step back a bit ... a wonderful photographer, Jen Kiaba wrote this blog about photoshop actions, something she loves to do. & so i asked her about this & check out the link she gave me to another equally wonderful blog the coffee shop. Now my knowledge of photoshop is limited, i need step my step, simple things simple mind instructions when it comes to anything computer related & here is a blog that will provide me with both the knowledge & the actions to create a certain "feel" in an image. I'm a little blown away.

So here i took the plunge. I have a number of images at any one time open in photoshop. They're photos where i love the composition, the subject matter & other aspects to the photo but there's something missing. It just doesn't feel right. So i play with them every so often, see what works & what doesn't & sometimes i create something that i love. Today with the help of said actions i created images that i love.

I spent 2009 discovering so much about me & my photography & we're only just into 2010 & already i feel like it could be a good year for me. So thank you to Jen & the coffee shop & i hope you like the results as much as i do!


  1. How fun that you have found a new love, Laura. I am happy for you. I am so envious of those who can manipulate photos and do all sorts of wonderful things with them. Bravo girl! Can;t wait to see what you create next.

  2. I LOVE coffeeshop blog - she has so much information and knowledge! Great photos by the way!

  3. I love the look of these pictures. Only one problem, COLOUR is spelled color;)
