More Fun with Portraits

"Aubrey in Abstract"

I recently purchased a new laptop computer. New computers come with Windows 7, Windows 7 requires Photoshop 8. All this means you learn everything all over again. Photoshop is a lot more fun than Windows to play with.

That is how I happened upon playing with this photo of my granddaughter, Aubrey. I was trying out some of the applications and came up with this abstract. I had been wanting to see if I could come up with a more angular design and found this.

I am having the most fun playing with the possibilities. More to come.


  1. I like what you're doing with all of these portraits. I'm having a hard time doing one of my adorable great nephew. I've done the same photo twice (a great picture) and it looks terrible. I think it's all about value. I will try again.

  2. Norma, I don't remember if I published both photos I did of my husband but I had a problem with value in the first one I did. That problem was too much value, but had the opposite problem with another one of my granddaughter. There is a happy medium. Good luck.
