“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
So today I present my second composite for my 52-week project in 2018. Much of this year is going to be devoted to learning and growing as a photographer and visual artist. I feel as if I am at somewhat of a crossroads and not sure which way to turn. I am hoping that this 52-week project along with other projects I am working on this year, will help me find my way.
Here is my composite for week two. This started with two images I had previously combined. I had already combined the skull and the car.
The most recent weather gripping most of our country made me want to add snow to the image. I have never added snow to an image before, so I went to my trusty friend, Google, and searched for videos explaining how to add snow to an image using Photoshop. My search led me to a wonderful video created by Aaron Nace of Phlearn.com. You can watch Aaron’s informative video by clicking here.
I used a texture I created of ice to tie things together.
As a finishing touch, I added the dog. When I showed my husband, Randy, the image, he asked, “why a dog?”.
The only thing that came to mind was, “why not a dog?”. I think that the magic in all of this is going to be that I can create anything as long as I let my imagination take me where it wants to go.
So here is my composite for week two.
I hope you will join me here for upcoming composites. I am looking forward to seeing where this adventure leads!
