One Four Challenge – April – Review Month (Week 3)…

Another week has passed and it’s that time again for me to review the last few months of the One Four Challenge.  Today we are talking about week 3.  Looking at the four months worth of images for the third week, I have to say I like them all!  Even the one that was giving me such stress during weeks 1 & 2 (February I’m looking at you.).  😀

It seems that by week three I am fairly comfortable with the image and know what I’d like to accomplish next.  Sometimes that was something I had envisioned when I first chose the image, but mainly it would appear that I was retrying something from week 2 that I wanted to do better.  Let’s go through them one at a time, shall we?

For December, I wanted desperately to change the color of the stuffed elephant.  It took quite a few tries, all my previous methods were not working because there was a pink glow in all the white bits of the elephant.  I finally figured out a way to do it and I was so very happy!  Check out my tutorial here.

Week 3

In January, I revisited my idea of trying to get my image to be like the movie A Scanner Darkly.  Again, I didn’t accomplish that look, but I did fall in love with what I did create.  I lovingly named it Finger Paint.  I had such a good time creating this image, it was the stress relief I needed for a tough month.  Check out that tutorial here.

Week 3 – Finger Paint

February, oh February… my problem child.  I really liked this edit, especially since I was displeased with this image for weeks.  I like how the colors are finally amped up and I like the drawing look I applied to it (I also changed the sky again).  Check out the tutorial here.

Week 3

March was the month of a great image.  Week 3 allowed me to do the thing I picked the image for in the first place.  I had a great time creating this image-to-text technique.  Lots of readers liked this one too. 😀  Check out the tutorial here.

I have joined a month-long photo post-processing challenge called One Four Challenge, hosted by Robyn at Captivate Me. “This challenge is about processing 1 image in 4 different ways over 4 weeks.” Every Monday Robyn posts a new version of her photo and challenges us to do the same each week.

    • Thanks, Robyn! 😀 I thought comparing my thought process as the weeks go by would be an interesting project. I was curious to see if there was some sort of pattern. Sometimes there is a pattern, other times not so much. But now I know, and so do you. 😀
