I think this must have been one of the longest gaps between posts, ever. My days have an extremely boring pattern of late, which goes work-photoshop-sleep-work-photoshop-sleep… Occasionally food intake is added to the mix, but isn’t a priority. Neither are house chores. The way things are going, we’re destined to drown in dust, grime and dirty laundry, ha!
About a week ago I think – it’s a little blurred – I discovered OOB, which stands for out-of-bounds photography. It takes less skills than endless patience and time , and the results are pretty stunning. But most of all, it carries my mind away from work. I’m working on a project with deadlines that border on silly, and my brain cells have been in overdrive. I admit it could be much, much worse, but knowing that doesn’t do anything to diminish the pressure on my little blonde head!
I’ve put my photohunt participation on ice for a while, it’s too damn hard to keep up with the communication that comes with it. Sorry! Oh well, better days are bound to come. One day. Until then, I’ll probably keep churning out manipulated photos.
For now I just used existing photos of mine, but I have other stuff in mind, taking pics purposely for the task. Hey, I might become an artist! Right now I’m waiting for a little gadget that I ordered from eBay, a Wacom Bamboo graphics tablet (the smallest one!). With that editing will be less crude, hopefully!
So here’s my first collection of little pieces of art. I hope you’ll like them. All photos are chosen pretty randomly and they’re not really meant to carry any messages – except for the horse: that’s me, looking for a less bland world LOL!
If you like to see the larger versions, they can be found in my deviantART gallery. And in case you’d like to try it out, here is the tutorial I first started working from, though I altered it for myself as I went along.
Well, that is all for this week, I reckon. My weekend is cut pretty short once again, tomorrow there’s the mega wedding reception of the owner’s daughter taking place at the hotel, where everyone has to help out. But that’ll pass, too. Happy weekend to YOU!
