I have become totally immersed in my journey to better photography and digital art!. Since joining The Arcanum a few short weeks ago, I have learned a lot and gained a very supportive group of colleagues. Plus having access to a master photographer for personalized feedback and support. It’s great!
My Level 4 involved preparing for and participating in a critique of my level 3 images. It was a humbling and informative experience! Getting constructive feedback was awesome. Here are some key lessons I have learned so far:
- Sharpen your images by adjusting settings to have a fast shutter speed.
- Tell a story with your images… convey an emotion or story with your photo.
- Remove distracting elements and don’t add anything that doesn’t enhance the photo.
- Experiment and try everything!
I decided to take the plunge and start using PhotoShop Creative Cloud… and believe me when I say there is a learning curve! I’m slower than usual, trying to learn the ins and outs as I go. Hopefully, the awesome tools and controls in processing will be worth it.
Level 5 involved taking and editing 5 new images, describing why you took them, and getting feedback. I was quite happy to receive several excellent suggestions. My Level 5 images are shown below.
