Floral Cocktail (with Photo Edit Tips) from The Yard

Spring Floral Cocktail (with photo editing tips)
Spring Floral Photo Cocktails (with photo edit tips)
Still from our full bloom spring (was officialy still winter) yard. Actually, the yellow flowers have been replaced by dandelions and little purple cones-like flowers. 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 now, nothing but a flat square of grass. Too late. Here the rest of beauties from our yard.

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: when I have photos with a boring background, sometimes I mix-layer it with another photos. It is not ment to fake a double-exposure technique. I just play around as I like, erase some part, or add more elements until desirable effect is achieved. The result examples are the 4 first photos above.

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

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!

Spring Flowers Collages (Photo Edit Tips)

Kaleidoscope pattern photo collage - tips editing artistic photos
Photo Pimp Up Tip - Kaleidoscopes Collages

One of tips that I like to edit and play around with my photos is making the photo looks like kaleidoscope. Basically in the photo editor software of my choice, I copy one picture several times, flip up or down the copies, connect them in a row and repeat a set of row to form a pattern.

Further more, I sometimes combine it with layering technique to make it look like very complicated picture which I sometimes prefer. I add some elements from another photos and then play around with the transparency. This way I can pimp my outfit photos for example, which I often take in front of the same wall over and over again.

These are photos from early Spring (=last month). By the time it's Summer maybe I still share you photos from this April hehehe. Lately it has been raining almost everyday and too bad I have been being sick since before the Magnolias time! Unbelievable. It's nasty kind of cold that started with sore throat, canker sore, body ache, then running nose and now cough and sneezing marathon every morning.

Oh, what did I say. Sorry for telling you about this. I shouldn't turn off the happy mood of this flower photos. I better shut up now and wish you a super inspiring day! Thanks to you who have visited my blogs, commented and been following my blog.
