I have been watching some of the bloggers I follow participate in Robyn’s Fine Art One Four Challenge for several months now, and this month decided to play along, hoping it would get me back into playing with some of my photos in a more artistic way – something I used to do, but somehow fell away from.
Using Photoshop Elements 13 I cropped the photo to remove the girls father, duplicated the layer, then set the blending mode to lighten, after which I merged the layers. I again duplicated the layer, went to the Artistic Filter>Poster Edges and adjusted settings until I was happy with what I had. As my final action, I changed the blending mode to dissolve. My result is this:
The challenge is to edit the same photo in different ways each week for four weeks – I have no idea what I’m going to do for the next three weeks!
