Photo Challenge – Lens-Artists: Creativity

Ann-Christine has asked us to show our creativity in this week’s post.

I started working in Adobe Illustrator a couple of months ago and I’m so excited about all the things it lets me do.  I’m doing some graphic design and to practice my drawing skills (which were non-existent before starting Illustrator), I’m taking older photos and reworking them in Lightroom, Photoshop and Illustrator.  Hubby calls it my expensive coloring book.

Dad

The handsome man above is my dad.  The photo was taken at a family event about 10 years ago.  I don’t know which family member took it but I am so grateful they did.

The drawing below is from my most absolute favorite photo in the world.  I love reading to my grandchildren and my daughter always takes a picture of my grandson snuggled in my lap while I read to him.

The Look

So hubby may be right about the expensive coloring book but I’m having fun and that’s all that matters.

A Reading Corner

This photo was homework for a photography class.  We were asked to take multiple photos of a subject we were passionate about.  I love to read and actually have reading corners all over the house.
