Photography Course - March

It's not always easy to get inspired pictures when the weather is either too cold, too rainy or too something.  But I guess that's where imagination needs to kick in!!

Board Games with a theme of Harmony
This really required imagination as all my games were at the cottage.  Nary a pack of cards or cribbage board in the house.  I borrowed these four from a friend and used the liquid tool in PS to distort. 

Shutter Zoom
An earlier post shows other variations of this.  It involves twisting the lens as the photo is being taken to get the streaky/blurred effect.  Robbie shoveling at the cottage

Do-Over 1
We had to do one of the techniques over.  I chose Tack Sharp which means the photo needs to be sharp from front to back.  And an item in front is required to show that you did this.  They are taking down a highway in Montreal and it's been quite fascinating watching the process as we drive by.  Not too many vantage points though to take a good picture and by the time I found this one, much of the pillars had been taken down.

Composite Montage
I have posted some pictures on an earlier post so show some other examples.   We combined a photo taken this week with a texture from a library that was available to us (ones that the class had taken).

This shot was based on my photo of a rusted iron wall on a modern building at MacDonald College in Sainte Anne de Bellevue.  I lightened it up quite a bit and then combined it with a photograph of the old mill in Pointe Claire. 

Thanks for looking, and as always, your comments are most appreciated.
