Creative Exchange


It's Creative Exchange again at Lisa's blog White Cotton Tee. I'm still a bit insecure with textures and which photos to use other than flowers (and not even every flower seems to work...), so today I decided to try something different.

As I already told, you I'm not so experienced with my software and somehow don't get around to really learn it. If I do use it, it's either something simple like adjusting the levels or I play around, mostly not able to reproduce the same effect again later on.

The picture above is a result of playing around... I converted the original photo into b & w and then used the solarize filter and adjusted the brightness.

Have a creative Tuesday!

I like this a lot Rosie. Black and white is perfect for the it, and the thing I REALLY love, is that even though I cannot see his face, he looks to be deep in thought! Love photographs like this that can leave so much to your interpretation/imagination.

Thank you so much for sharing this today at The Creative Exchange.
