Photo project.

Yesterday I said I was working on some photos I took of my dad. I started using GIMP 2 on my newer laptop and then this morning I remembered the photo editing site Phixr. I like Phixr because it has a lot of interesting filters to help mediocre photos. It also gives me ideas on what techniques I can use in my photo editing and as well as paintings.

So, this is one of the pictures I did using GIMP 2.

I put a blue overlay there….I liked this photo when I took it. And I’ll still work with it some more.

This next photo I did with Phixr.

I really liked how this turned out.  I think it tells more of a story and has a sense of atmosphere.

Photos and me.

I have a small collection of candid photos I took of my father. He doesn’t like having his photo taken but I ask and he concedes. I did the photos in an attempt to try to understand him better. He doesn’t always talk about what he is going through.  In any case, I’ve been trying to edit the photos (taken with the camera phone) and it has been interesting.

I haven’t done this kind of work in quite a while so nothing is looking right to me. I hope to have one I am happy with by this evening.
