Class of 2017

Believe it or not, the prairie is brimming with opportunity for youth in our rural area. Musicians, artists, athletes…the list goes on. We have some of the finest schools providing a solid education along with extra-curricular activities to round out the experience. Many of these students are also working part-time jobs, perform volunteer work, and participate in other programs such as 4-H along with their studies. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to be a small part of your high school experience.

The world may seem to be a roller coaster of events, but these examples of the class of 2017 give me hope.

Best wishes for the future and peace out!

Lessons Learned

Hard work + mental toughness + discipline = wrestling

Is it spring yet?

Lightning & Smoke

I’m not fond of drama in real life but I do love a dramatic blended image… and high school sports.

Tried to make my own lightning at first, but decided that was too time consuming. Googled smoke and lightning brushes and downloaded some free brushes, installed them in Photoshop CC 2015. BOOMmuch easier.

Every image can use improvement and I think an action image would be a good candidate for a blend using these brushes.

Next time…

A little creativity + free overlay

You can’t beat “free,” right?  Ashe Designs had a free overlay offer that included a football with shattered glass around it. I thought the football in the overlay appeared too cheesy so dragged it over my image and erased the football out. Copied and sized the glass only results and added a zoom effect to one of the layers to show movement. Plain bleacher background is now jazzed up. Ta-dah!!  Love free things…
