It's A Start

I had so much fun playing with these photos last night in class! I really was wishing that I could have stayed much longer, but my neck and shoulders told me to stop, so I listened. I have to do some physical therapy next week for that. Yuck. So I'm going to try and take care of myself while I'm undergoing treatment. We will have a chance to work on these some more in class next week, which is good because I don't feel quite done with these and I have a whole other one that I haven't even started on. But I thought you'd like to have a look-see at how it's all coming along:

I'm not sure what else I'll do with this old motel one. Maybe I'll do a slight hint of pink over the "Motel Office" letters on the side there or something, but I don't know.

This one's really not done. The eyes are a little over-the-top and I need to play with the color sliders in the black & white layer a little bit more. I don't know what I did that's making his shirt all blown-out looking.

And this one? The apron? It was a big hit. I love it a lot. I still want to tweak it a little bit but not much. I might make it a little more black-and-white and a little less sepia and I might tone down the green on the porch a bit. But overall, I'm pretty happy with it.

And here's the last-minute, pull-off-on-the-side-of-the-highway, snap-the-picture-and-run-like-heck photo that I haven't worked on at all yet:

Oh isn't that fun. I was looking at the "motel office" letters yesterday thinking there should be a way to make that more clear, so I like the faded pink idea.

The apron looks great and I think the "run-like-heck" photo is pretty cool too. I LOVE old trucks, always have.

Ooh, I love the apron - are you photoshopping these? You are doing a great job plus I just like the photos....

I think they're fabulous. The colors are hard to tell because my monitor makes everything look washed out. So Andrew's eyes look fine to me.

I think you know you're doing something you love when you're willing to hop out of your car, snap a picture and run away. The picture was totally worth it- I love it!

Pregnant Belly Assignment is whenever you get your pregnant-bellied ass down here to see me girl!
And, ahem, you rock too;)
