Happy New Year! 🙂 I was planning to write a resume of 2015 today for the English part of the blog but I won’t have time so I will put that up on Tuesday. What I will do is to present the two photos I got to take for Jen’s and my tree project’s first theme. Shallow depth of field. I am not 100% satisfied with this first photo -which is the one most true to the theme. I can do a lot better. I might try a few more of shallow depth of field even though we now have a new theme. What I love about the photo (I always have to find something I like in my photos to practise not being so self-critical!) is the light. The contrast with the white tree trunk and the setting sun reflecting in the tree tops. What I don’t like is […]
I am excited. My dear friend Jen is an amazing artist with great creative talent. Everything she touches becomes beautiful art. She is a great supporter in my creative journey.

From different aspects. We alternate to choose a theme per week. So we will both learn from each other and together through this project.

I found this Photoshop tutorial on my favourite photography tips youtube channel. He is great.

I tried it on a photo that I have previously posted here on the blog. I like it! I think the effect really conveys my feeling when I took the photo. The magic of nature and how my inner peace and spirituality feed of that magic. Which is also what the entry was about (in Swedish). Which editing do you prefer?
