This hyacinth bloomed Saturday just outside my front door. It was stunning with the sun shining on it. Used Kim's texture: bestill.
Kobi joined me out back when I took the bead pictures below. I couldn't resist catching a macro of him while I was at it. Difficult though because he wouldn't stay still when I got so close. Used Kim's texture: fallin
mouseover for before image
I put the beads and shell on a piece of white paper in the morning sun. The background wasn't this white straight out of the camera. I've got lots to learn to accomplish that, but using the dodge tool, I was able to accomplish the task for Macro Monday: white background.
I had fun working with some of Kim's techniques on this last one. No textures on either bead images.
Hope you all had a grand weekend.
