Photo Art

I recently joined an art photography online training course, “Photoshop Artistry.” (PA) So far, this course has been exceptional. I’ve been learning so much about how to use Photoshop to enhance photos and to bring them to the next artistic level, a level that goes way beyond what I might have been capable of doing. At a basic level, it’s about manipulating photos, but it’s so much more than that. At an advanced level, it’s about creating art.

I’m just scratching the surface of this unique, interesting, FUN course. It cost me a few bucks for the basic course, but there’s an even more advanced offshoot, Awake, which only opens up a few times a year for membership, and it costs even more than PA. I was fortunate enough to get into that course as well. It’s completely worth it.

So, I hope to post some (or all) of my efforts here for your perusal. There’s also a magazine associated with this group. It’s called “Living the Photo Artistic Life.” Check it out and see what you think. I hope to have at least one of my creations accepted into the magazine. But, I’ve got a long way to go before that’s going to happen.

Here’s my first, rudimentary try. It’s a self-portrait I took in Korea several years ago. I’ve added a few features to turn it into something different. I’m still trying to think of a good title for it. The first photo is the original.

Seeking Salvation

My first attempt at Photo Artistry. What do you think? Long ways to go before I’m even slightly proficient at this. Came up with a title for it.
“Seeking Salvation”

[EDIT: I might keep making some adjustments to it until it suits me.]
