Photochallenge Week 51: Happy Holidays
This week the challenge was to create a photo holiday card. I wish I had done this earlier in the season so I could print and send these out! Oh well, consider this my virtual greeting card to you!
This past weekend I camped out in our basement with my camera to observe and shoot various birds as they flitted to our two feeders out back. The outside temp ranged from -30 to -15 that day but the sun was out and the birds were going crazy. Some snow flurries came and went in the morning and I managed to catch this chickadee in a moment of silence with snow flashing around him. Perfect! I did do a little Lightroom post production on this to blur out some house details in the background. Then I put in in Photoshop CC and added a text layer with an edge glow fx. I thought about doing a border, but felt this would affect the mellow nature of the picture.
Have a merry Christmas, or whatever holiday you celebrate!
