It's time for our virtual gallery exposition. Have you brought a piece of photo art to showcase here? If you haven't, you still have time to go and create one and come back and link up your art. Photo Art Friday is open to all from the Thursday night before (at 7:00 p.m. EST) to the Sunday evening at 7:00 p.m. EST.
The pieces I have posted for this week's showcase are a composite of a texture (mine), a photograph given a painterly feel in PSE (mine), and a public domain image of a woman. I can see much room for improvement - but these images will have to do, as is, for now.
Thank you to all who shared their creative works at Photo Art Friday last week. "You just blow me away!" Thank you too for all the good wishes re the health issues in my family. They were much appreciated.
For next week's Photo Art Friday let's each try something we have never done before - something a little out of our individual comfort zone. For example, if there is a technique you have been wanting to try, a Photoshop tool you have been wanting to master, a new form of photo art you have been wanting to experiment with, a specific tutorial you have been wanting to follow to produce something artistic, an effect you have been longing to create ... do it, and showcase a piece of photo art that is different from what you would normally produce!
Don't worry about whether or not you have totally mastered the new effect you are trying. Just link-up what you have done, give us a little information in your post about what you are trying to achieve, and your degree of satisfaction, your next anticipated step, challenges encountered, etc. Then wait for the encouragement ..... and possibly feedback, suggestions, tips, possible resources, etc. to pour in. Easy peasy!
If you are comfortable with this type of information exchange, we can become sources of learning for each other, as well as sources of encouragement. Not all of us will need or want tips and suggestions, but for those of us still climbing a steep learning curve in the creation of photo art, this way of proceeding could prove invaluable.
So that folks who do not want suggestions or constructive criticism about their work do not receive unsolicited advice, I suggest that if you need feedback, tips, suggestions, etc., you ask for it in your post. Thus, if someone does not ask for tips or suggestions, we proceed with our commenting as we always have done ..... and avoid giving unsolicited tips. No one should feel any obligation to have to receive or to give feedback. I welcome your comments about this suggestion.
