I already tweeted about this “Fortune Teller” photo, but I thought it deserved a mini-blog.
As I go through and post photos (very late) for my daily assignments, I was struck by the thought that some of my photos 100% suck. They aren’t that creative or inspired. They seem to be very tedious.
It also is time consuming because I know the selection of photos I choose from that day are crappy. I want to make them not crappy so I end up spending a lot of time trying to make the photo look cool. Sometimes it works. Yay! Other times I end up with the photo above…. Meh.
But there is hope! Some of my favorite photos I have taken so far have been when my friends dress up in ridiculous outfits and model for me.
So out of all the photos I have posted lately, here is the one I like the best.
I actually made this in Powerpoint, surprise, surprise. Powerpoint has a nice effect that let’s you get rid of the background. Then I added an painting like effect and then used a background that I found online (I also edited the background to make it more arty).
I like the bright colors here, and the smile on Karen’s face. It seems very whimsical and dreamlike. Already in my head I am creating a short story about a fortune teller.
