ConsciouslyCreative with @5ftinf ~Texture~

This week we are looking at texture and the use of filters in enhancing features. I really enjoy taking images outside, exploring different textures in nature.

I loved the image of this puddle. I can see an animal like a rabbit, with a snout and big ears.

The use of a VSCO filter and a small amount of sharpening made the animal really stand out. I loved the slightly blueish tinge to the water too.


After - VSCO filter plus clarity and sharpening

Before editing

And after...




I loved this mouldy aubergine. I thought it looked like a little hedgehog!

I've sharpened this a little too much for my liking. It's still quite a cute image though.

Just a little bit sharper

I edited this image, sharpened it a little and fiddled with filters - but I much preferred it without any editing!

Gave the apples a little more colour

I really liked the second image despite bleaching it to within an inch of its life!!

Tried to lighten this image up a little - but it still looks the same!

I still really struggle with the composition of my flatlays. I took lots of images on different backgrounds over the course of this week but I always prefer my images taken when I'm out and about on my walks. More practice required!
