Hello readers! I’ve been absent for a couple of months, but I am back, and wishing you a wonderful holiday season!
This image is a pine cone that I shot in my studio (aka my kitchen), converted to black and white in Photoshop CC. I’ve added a bokeh texture and a grunge border, both from Shadowhouse Creations. (Check out the goodies on the Shadowhouse blog, by the talented and generous Jerry Jones, at http://shadowhousecreations.blogspot.com/). I slipped a layer of solid color behind the image to create the red border. I then added a subtle drop shadow to the image layer to create a bit of depth. Finally, I added the text in the Papyrus Regular font to wish you Happy Holidays!
The blog will be active again in the New Year, so please join me then! In the meantime, please feel free to leave a comment about your photography, your art, or whatever is on your mind … I would love to hear from you.
As always, I wish you happy shooting, and a satisfying photographic journey!
