Floral Cocktail (with Photo Edit Tips) from The Yard

Spring Floral Photo Cocktails (with photo edit tips)
Continue the previous post, still from our full bloom spring (was officialy still winter) yard. Actually, the yellow flowers have been replaced by dandelions and little purple flowers that were like cones. I was sadly surprised because I was just about to take some pictures of them when the gardener had been doing the lawn so they are all gone left nothing but a flat square of grass. Too late. Here the rest of beauties from our yard. Keep rolling down for photo tips!

Put my cam on the grass and run flat to wall
(Timer selfie tips: experiment putting cam on anything but be secure. I have destroyed my previous cam because of this)
Photo edit tips: Now, I've decided to mix some spring photos into cocktail. Kind of artistic experiment. I duplicate two or three different photos into layers of one work window. Then I just play around with layer mode and transparency as I please. Enjoy the surprising result. When you (now I use you) should stop depends on your taste. Then flatten the images or continue with photo filter or you can do the other editing first before you make the layers mix as you like. It's like a double exposure in photography, but it didn't mean to fake it.

Above are the results, the original photos I use in the layers mix and some other photos I picked up from the series. Do you know which original photos I used into which mix cocktail photos?

See my style blog Naty Ponders for more photos of these series here : On The Yellow Carpet Under Sunshine..., you got it).

Lastly...Happy a little bit belated Easter to you who celebrate and Happy Kartini Day to all women. Kartini is Indonesian peoneer in women's rights. She is our hero. Have a super inspiring day!

  1. I really like the photos with the double exposure. Mostly that one with the wall and shadows of tress and you! :) It's a nice thing to play around with.

    Thank you for your comment! Your German was good enough so I could understand everything.
    I definitely know what you mean. Dirndl aren't easy to buy, you really need a specialized shop so everything can fit. ^^
    And a lot of the young girls overact with the shortness of their skirts or décolleté.

    1. Danke schön, Christine. Yes, it's about playing around and having fun too, no need to try too hard to make it look like real camera-produced double exposure, free imagination hehe.

      Thanks for your reply too. I do love Dirndl and Tracht, Too bad I am less lucky one in the fitting so I have to customize as you said. Have a lovely day! I get back to you soon.

      PS: yuhuuu, echt ist mein Deutsch gut genug? You made my day, danke!:)

  2. Thank you for your lovely words to my recent photos! You really said what I wanted to express with them and it's great to read someone really sees that through the photos!

    Real double-exposures are amazing fun. ;) Played around with that a bit over the last time and loved it. But it isn't that easy... I guess an app is more fun.

    Wish you a great weekend!

    1. Thanks to you, Christine. I think you are very talented indeed, you've done great works, because It's not easy to take photos that show and deliver the same message as you would like to.
      Agree the real double exposure one is not easy too. I also like to try apps and software. Glad they come up more and more nowadays :).
      Happy weekend to you too!
