Photo lab week 9

I am playing with Prairie Jill( Miriam( We are working our way through Steve Sonheim’s photography book(Creative-Photography-Lab-Self-Expression-Mixed-Media), lab by lab.

This week’s lab is supposed to be a mixed media lab with textures….but I have only gotten as far as the textures part. I am taking advantage of all the “wonderful” snow we have, and took a series of different snow textures:

10 photo collage_edited-1

they are as follows(clockwise from upper left):

1 boot track    2 troughs dug by Stewie     3 salted and sanded snow pile in parking lot

4 tire tracks(I like this one so much I want to make a stencil or thermofax screen from it)    5 mini snow drifts    6 bunny tracks

7 an ice sculpture    8 alien tracks   9 snow dunes that remind me of sand dunes    10 glistening snow- this was enhanced by HDR processing.

Lesson learned so far…it is really hard to take pictures of snow…..and auto-enhance in PSE doesn’t work well at all.

  1. Great textures! I love all the tracks you’re finding – especially the alien ones! (I thought of you today as I watched a squirrel running through the snow, leaving its tracks behind!) I also really love the sparkly one in the middle.
