photography project

Photoshop is an amazing program–and so fun! I wanted to share a project of mine that I’d been working on in Photoshop. I’m loving it, and am excited about the way it turned out.

This is the photo in its more natural state. I’ve certainly worked with it in Photoshop, but only to enhance it, not really to change it. I really like this photo–the colors are so bright and vivid.

And here is the photo, made into something more abstract. I love this for different reasons–the shapes and colors are fun. The background almost looks like a heat map or something. It certainly doesn’t look like anything that you’d actually see in nature, but I think that’s what makes it neat–it’s almost more like a painting than a photograph.

I recently added the abstract print to my Etsy shop, and hope to create and add many more like it. Happy almost Friday!



Exciting news! I finally took the plunge and did something that I’ve been thinking about doing for a while. Buy a little beach house in South Carolina? Nope. Run away to pastry school in Napa? Nope. Have white wine and a pint of Ben & Jerry’s for dinner? Possibly, but not what I’m getting at.

I opened an Etsy shop! I’ve been doing photography for years, and have recently been getting back in the swing of things. So I figured, now’s the time!

The shop is also called the little éclair, and it’s here on Etsy. The shop is small for now, but I’m hoping to continue working and adding to it now that it’s officially up and running! I’ll have photographic prints for sale there, like the ones here and this one:

I’ll keep things updated on the Etsy page of this site, and let me know if there’s anything you’d be interested in seeing there!

Exciting stuff 🙂 Happy (almost) weekend!
