Capturing a fleeting moment in a way which one day will take you right back to that place, the smells, the sounds, the feeling. There is magic in photography. I love taking photos and I think something in me helps me take some sweet shots with the occasional flukey great one, but I don't really know why I like the ones I like, and I know there is so much more to learn. So I have just taken a class with photographer extraordinaire Susannah Conway (as part of the Wish Studio virtual art retreat), learning more about composition, light, and all sorts of other things I never really think much about. I photographed my cup of tea, and then played around with some editing tools. Which one do you like best? And which one do you like least? I'd love to know which and why.
Altered versions 1-12:
I quite like the original photo, but think altered version number 12 is my favourite. I love the difference in texture either side of the diagonal line, and the pattern in the bottom right corner would make fantastic wrapping paper!
Photography actually runs through my family (right back four generations) so maybe this is just awakening something that has always been there... more on that another day.
