This is a photography post with a bit of a difference.
I mean – what do i do with a pic after i’ve taken it ?
With my new Nikon Camera (i use that term very loosely) I can already adapt a photograph thanks to the imaging tools on the camera
OK if i just want to switch the image from Colour to Black and White, and add a bit of Sepia, but what about an artistic angle ?
Here’s an original photo of the Fort at Albufeira in the Algarve, taken with my Sony DSC H-300 Bridge Camera
It looks good enough – i particularly like the anchor 🙂 but with a few tweeks using my Art Programs i get some lovely effects. This photo was edited with the latest edition of Corel painter essentials, but I also have a copy of adobes photoshop essentials to hand, should I want to create any layered effects.
Here’s the same photograph using an oil effect – very impressionist……
Here’s the photo using what Corel call a “Coloured Pencil” Effect
and here’s one using a “Modern” paint effect
They’re all a bit abstract in their way but they produced some great artwork!
