Letter to Chance

By chance I met you in my dream

What a coincidence

You were there sitting on the left wearing glasses

Smiling big

You were the one

Who lived in a pineapple

Down under

The ocean

Selfies Are Fun

For years I’ve been taking selfies. My social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram have loads and loads of selfies. Today I thought I would make collaged art out of them. Here is what I created.

 

Making Polaroid Framed Photos Using Photoshop

I created photos that are Polaroid framed. I found a Polaroid picture online. Then put it in a layer. I selected the black middle and deleted it. Then put the images below the polaroid layer. Then put a text box on top and typed the captions for the images. Here are some examples below.

Rochester Institute of Technology photos.

 

Mendon, New York walk photos.

 

Ottawa, Canada adventure photos.

 

 

Editing Photos in iPhoto

iPhoto is part of the iLife suite and comes on every Mac computer. It is a great software for editing photos. It helps you organize your photos into albums. My favorite part of iPhoto is its ability to easily turn a boring photo into a masterpiece. All you need to do is click on enhance and then add some effects. Here are some examples of my photos that I edited in iPhoto.

Here is a video I made about the process. I will be showing you how to enhance a photo, turn a photo sepia toned, black and white, boost color, edge blur, antique, straighten, and crop.
