Tagxedo.com.... Love this site....

If you haven't heard of it, check out Tagxedo. If you have, but haven't visited in a while, go play around for a few minutes. I cannot remember how I came across it, but I am a word girl and I love collages, so these are right up my alley. Sometimes I have a lot going on in my mind and it helps if I get the words out. If I can't sort them out in sentences (yes, this happens!), I love to make these "word clouds". So, I made one about photography today - my class wraps up tomorrow (*tear*), but this is just the beginning. I have learned a lot over the past few months and am very excited to keep practicing and learn more.

And here are some other "clouds" I have made. Fun and therapeutic..... :)

More Me Than You Can Handle....

One of me is a handful.... How about 5 of me?! I got an email a few days ago from Photojojo! in regards to cloning yourself in photos and I just had to try it. So, without much (or any) real thought into it, I set up my camera on the tripod and ran around my room, posing in different positions before the 10 second self timer went off! Then, after collecting a number of shots, I imported them into Photoshop and got to work layering, erasing, layering, erasing..... To see the tutorial that I followed, click here.

I cannot wait to do this again with more elaborate poses and interesting subject/background - this was just fun to see if I could do it. And I did! :)

Note: if you are going to try this, do it in a place that the light will remain the same. Duh, right.... Well, I chose my living room... At 7pm.... Which happened to be when the sun was setting, so my light and colors from the first pics were quite different from the last (which is why the pic of me standing, talking on the phone is a little dark compared to the rest).
