If this is going to become a collection of collages done by our members featuring their best or favourite photos of 2007, then I feel I must move this over into the Photo Themes. Nice new theme. Should only be collages. I am hopping into Photoshop now to create mine .
Well, I put my collage together not under the aspect of "my best shots from 2007" or even "my favourite shots from 2007", but as a collage that shows what I did throughout the year. I pursued the part of photography that I have always liked very much, i.e. landscapes and also nature close-ups (yes, the much dreaded, considered-as-boring-by-many flowers, for example) in my own garden and immediate surroundings. I further played with "my little studio" on one occasion, testing out lights (by making use of simple desk lights) on "Liesel", the wooden figurine. I dabbled with HDR a little, did a wedding, had my dance photos published in the shape of advertising posters, quite like shapes and forms of [modern and also mundane]architecture (though I don't get very much practise in that area), love to stroll around my two favourite cemeteries nearby - and even played around a little with deliberate out-of-focus photography (sort of "inspired" by Rob91, though I feel my approach is a lot different from his). All that is meant to be represented in that collage. Well, and I cannot leave our pets un-photographed, of course !
