The Wilde Olive Blog: Edit Me Fun!


Edit Me Fun!

Thursday, July 7, 2011

Each week when I see Branson's Edit Me Challenge go up, I go take a look at the photo (I'm usually at work) and come back later to download and start on my edit. Yesterday, when I saw this photo go up I really had no ideas.

 All I could think was to lighten the shadows and do a clean edit, but then I started looking at some of the other entries.... at first there were a lot of black and I didn't want to do what everybody else was doing (they were all already GREAT edits). So, last night after I got home (took some 25 week photos, put my swollen left leg up and ate two slices of pizza - pregnancy is weird or is just me?) I started playing. I remembered commenting earlier in the day on Jessica's edit from I HEART Photoshop (holla). I noted that it looked like an old newspaper clipping...So that's where it all started. This edit is kind of ridiculous and made me laugh a lot while I was doing it, but it was fun to do something I'd never done before. I wish the writing had been a little more creative on my part, but I got tired and fell asleep with the laptop in the bed beside me. So here it is:

My Reflection of Something
