In a calm moment of patience….


In one of my calmer moments, which we will attribute to a momentary, if not abnormal, moment of patience, I allowed my husband to teach me a new process in our photo editing software.  When used in small increments it will preserve the edges in your digital photographs, but when you turn up the intensity you get a rather unique and exciting look to the photo you are editing.  I will post below the intense version in this post to show what I am talking about.  The process is call High Pass Sharp. If you use it as a layer and then turn the layer into an overlay you get edges that are preserved and sharpened so your digital image has less noise in the data.  But below is the process used as a layer and then not promoted as an overlay, as the artist I am, I love this process.  I am always trying to push the envelope of conventional art…so here is the finished product.  I would also like to say that I don’t think this is a process that would be good for just any picture…but when used this way it adds to the solitary, lonely and haunting image created by involving the high pass sharp process as the layer itself.  Like I said this is not a process everyone will enjoy, but I am always willing to try a new process to my art.  I was so excited just by the process of learning a new way to view the world around me and I was equally excited to share it with those that happen upon my blog.

Art has always been a part of my life, ever since I can remember I have been creating art. I would make gifts to share with others at Christmas and then I found drawing, or maybe God introduced me to that particular art form, but it was an all consuming thing during my youth. After I had kids, it seemed that art didn't fit into my world in the same way. But the desire was always there and it eventually took over my life again...becoming a need more than a desire. So, photography enters my life. Artists have a unique way of seeing the world, it is their vision that creates the art not the medium they choose to express it in. No two artists will see the same thing in the exact same way. It is the most beautiful form of flattery to have someone see your art and tell you it is beautiful to them. It connects you on such an intimate level. I want to share my creative vision with everyone that wants to look upon it with appreciation.
