It’s Never Too Late to Learn

I use Lightroom for editing but wanted to learn how to use Photoshop for other projects so I’m taking a photoshop class on line and I wanted to share some of the things I’ve learned so far.  (I took a 6-week Photoshop class a couple of years ago but you know how it is when you don’t use it…you lose it.)

Here are some abstract images using brushes and gradients (which are absolutely amazing!  Remember the Kaleidoscopes when we were kids?)

And here’s a before and after where I painted my photo.

Pretty cool stuff!

Foggy Beach

Several weeks ago, we had an unusual foggy day.  It covered the beach for most of the day and gave it a very eerie – but still beautiful – quality and provided yet another side of the character of the beach.

The fog did not deter this little bird.  He scurried along the surf looking for his lunch and found several tasty items.

I wasn’t the only one out to enjoy the weather.

Boneyard Beach

This weekend I had the amazing opportunity to view and photograph the sunrise on Boneyard Beach located on Bulls Island.  The north end of the island is eroding and the live oaks and red cedars of the forest are now part of the surf serving as guardians of the beach.

The sky was full of color and absolutely wonderful to see…

although just as dramatic in black and white.
