This is another picture of my cousin Stacie and her sugar daddy, Justin. I needed another picture for my edge effects and I really liked how this turned out with the idea that I had for edge effects.
Editing:
As far as the picture goes, I did camera raw processing by boosting colors. Did my regular actions of “Boost” and “oh! Snap” and then started on the edge effect. I used the marquee tool to make all my shapes, but on one layer I would make all the shapes that I wanted of a certain opacity and would do the same for about 5 different layers to get a bunch of different opacities of shapes. That’s about it. Then I added my logo.

This picture came from Bannack Ghost Town on the day we had our Photo Excursion. This has been one of my favorites from Bannack, it just never fulfilled requirements for the blog we needed to do for that week.
Editing:
I did camera raw processing by boosting colors. After applying the image, I had the red background color in place and started masking parts of the image out with a sponge type brush. Looks great! Then I added my logo.

This would be my roommate Daniel at the Ropes Course for our FHE Activity last month. He told me that this was one of his favorite pictures. We had a blast that night and I just want to publicly thank Daniel for paying for our entire FHE group to do the Rope Course.
Editing:
I did camera raw processing by boosting colors. For the edge, I wanted to use this splash/splatter looking brush that I had because I wanted something with a sharp edge on it. I think it turned out pretty well. Then I added my logo.

    THese turned out pretty cool man. I like the border that you put on the couple the best. It really helped bring the focus on them. Great job!

    Great Job. I like the border on the couple because some of the boxes were a little transparent, which I think makes the border look even better. I also really liked that you had a color border effect on your shot from Bannack.

    I love all of your edge effects! The first one with the different lines is super neat. I love the way it frames the picture. I love the color you chose on the chair from Bannack. Awesome!
