Partial Cutout April 25, 2010

1. Fire Hydrant: 28 April 2010, 5:43 PM, Baronessa Parking lot, f 4.1, 1/400 sec, Kodak Easyshare M736 Digital Camera

2. Fire Hydrant Cutout: Partial cutout with quick selection tool – refined edges on white

I actually took this picture kind of as a throw away, but it ended up being my favorite.  I think the composition of the actual picture could use some work.  Anyway, I thought it would be interesting to do the cutout along the sidewalk so that it didn’t look so blatently edited.  It’s odd too that the colors on the cutout look a lot richer than on the first photo, even though I didn’t do anything to effect the color.

1. Bear: 23 April 2008, 5:47 PM,  Baronessa Apt. 201, f 2.8, 1/60, Kodak Easyshare M673 Digital Camera

2. Bear Cutout: Complete cutout with quick section tool – refined edges on white.

This is my roommate’s stuffed bear.  I think she named it Andy.  It’s really nicce to snuggle up against when all of your roommates have taken all the space on the couches.  Not that I have any experience with that or anything.  I think it’s funny how the cutout looks slightly squished, even though it’s actually the exact same porportions as the full picture.

Well, I’m no pro, but I DO like taking pictures of nature, evidently.  All of my pictures were taken on my mission with my Kodak CD33 Zoom Digital Camera, and none of them were edited at all, and all of them were taken hand-held.  I think what I love most about these pictures are the vibrant colors. Admittedly, the composition of the shots could probably use some help, but, oh well.
