Here we are at our fourth Photo Art Friday already. This one will lead us right into the month of October. As mentionned in a previous post, I was again amazed by the quality of photo art pieces posted by everyone last week. That certainly bodes well for what awaits us this week.
You may very well be wondering why Photo Art Friday is published on a Thursday. :) Every week the inlinkz tool activates on Thursday evening at 7:00 p.m. EST ... just for the early birds among us. If you are not ready to link up Thursday evening, you have another three days in which to do so. The inlinkz tool will be open until Sunday evening at 7:00 p.m. EST. So - no hurry, no worry.
There is no theme this week, nor will there be next week. You do not have to fit your image, imagination or creativity into any category box. My only request is that you make a link in your post to this post, so that as many people as possible will join us either to participate or to view the art.
This photograph of a white 'cleome' is used as the 'canvas' for my photo art this week.
Eh voici - my submission for this week. If it looks familiar, you may have seen it previously on my other blog Original Art Studio.
Here's how it was done:
Made a slight levels adjustment to brighten the photo
Sharpened the image
Added an overlay with a faint script (not yet released here)
Blended the overlay with the photo in Difference blend mode
Left the opacity at 100%
Added my signature
Okay, the doors to our 'virtual vernissage' will open to the public soon. Time to link up your art!
I'm already linked up and now busying myself preparing little virtual canapes and the virtual champagne and sparkling water. Everything will be on a buffet table waiting for you. Please help yourself. Then, make your way from artist to artist and be inspired by the variety of photo art on display just for YOU. :)
If you are new to Photo Art Friday, please don't be intimidated by the word "art". Read the guidelines in my static page HERE and you will see just how broad and relaxed the requirements for participation are.
Last, but certainly not least, please don't forget to visit other participants. We all need a little positive feedback now and then. :)
