The other photos are more playing, with the exciting fact I found out yesterday in this tutorial. That is, that you can add solid colour layers-which I knew, and I do this and lower the opacity. However, I didn't know that if you add a solid colour, you can then play around with the layers effects on it and build up colours to get different effects. The poppy photo is the 'urban acid effect' from the tutorial, and the other photos are me playing around. They are soft light, white, red and green solid colours with soft light effect. It made the photos look warmer.
The subject matter is obvious. I made this papier-mache Frida and Diego years ago, and found the photos tonight when looking for some to use. She may have poppies in her hair. She is a bit like Alice I suppose-in that there are countless images and representations of her out there.
Poppy photo with one of Kim Klassen's lovely textures on it. It makes me think of a wine label for some reason. The poppies really are beautiful. I am thinking of entering the Country File photo competition with one of my photos. More on that later. I have never entered a photo competition so it would be fun to try!
