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.
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. BOOM! …much easier.
Every image can use improvement and I think an action image would be a good candidate for a blend using these brushes.
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…
What a treat… Having spent quite a bit of time with his parents in fourth and fifth grade during the mid 1980’s, I experienced a flood of memories as I photographed and edited these images. It’s always a great feeling to see former students turn into not only good citizens but fabulous parents, as well. Kudos to Trish & Jack…
