It's just as well I don't have to make school lunches, put people on the bus or think about making dinner too often these days.
The hours have passed today, too many to count precisely, and most of them spent, pen on tablet, fussing over pictures in Photoshop.
but.... I daresay that if it did not 'float my boat' then I would not do it......
I've pretty well foresaken using stock photos for my digital work, relying solely on images that I shoot myself.
The downside is that I often spend many hours backtracking, keywording and cataloguing photos taken over the years to make into a useful library. Oh the value of hindsight!
The upside of trolling through files and folders to organize (as well as create) is that you find images that you thought you had forgotten and somehow in the fresh light of day they foster some fine inspiration!!
Both pieces above are composites (one more obviously so than the other!)
Winter's Light is comprised of 3 different photographs as well as (home grown) textures a whole bunch of adjustment layers and Receeding Waters is a composite of 4 photographs plus sundry other goodness.
And yes......if you thought I was working on some new class files you could be right!
