Happy Halloween!

Pete's Saw Shop - This is an old business in O'Neill that I took a picture of when it was raining, so the raindrops add to the effect.

This is another picture that I took of the O'Neill Cemetery,  I added some ghosts using the brush tool along with the moon and clouds above. And in the foreground I added text.

Week 9 - October 18 - 22 - Brush Tools

This picture is one I made using different snowflake brushes that I found on the Internet. I used many different styles and colors and than added the picture we used on our Christmas card last year and added some text. 

This picture was made using the gradient tool for the background and a husker stamp that I made from a picture I found on the Internet. The picture of the Husker game itself, I took last year at the first game of the 2009 season.
 This was a real simple picture that I just used different flower brushes and some free-form text.

These are pictures that I have taken. On the first one, I was at the first Nebraska Cornhusker game of the season last year when I took it. I made the picture black and white and then colored back in the N and the word Huskers in the end zone. I like the effect that this adds to the picture. (GO BIG RED! :] ) The second picture I used on last weeks blog but this week I added some text with some help of the use of paths. I like how the words look even if they are a little bunched up because I makes me think of them as looking more like water droplets coming out of the spout. They begin in sort of a puddle and lengthen back out until they hit the cement drain at the bottom. So I liked what I did with that picture a lot. The third picture is one I took at the Kiddie Park with my camera in the sand, I found the quote on the internet. I don't know for sure if I like may path placement a lot, but I think it turned out fairly well. Finally my last picture was also taken at the Kiddie Park. I selected just the slide and used the black and white feature on it but changed the tint to red since the slide has a lot of red in it. I think this picture also turned out kind of cool.

Week 6 - Photography September 27 - October 1

 For this weeks projects, our focus was photography. These are pictures that I took around the school.

I used the burn tool on three of these pictures just to darken a few spots. I really like the angles that I got on these shots. I feel like I did a nice job finding some different things to take pictures of to. So overall I think that this week I did a pretty decent job.
