Another Day, Another Photo

I'm still doing that Photoshop class being given by  Kim Klassen. It really takes a lot of time. I get so confused once all the layers get going, and I have to watch the videos quite a few times to figure out what I'm doing. Thankfully, her videos are very clear, and show everything I need to know.

Today I started with this picture of the Man of the House. He's on the site of some old mine ruins out in North Adams, Ma.


And then, I added in this piece of dryer vent.


After using different lighting effects and opacitys, and a gradient layer that is darker in the middle, I added some text, said the magic word, and waved Ginny's apple stick at it, and behold: 


Now I just  need to write the Gothic novel to go with this book cover.... Or maybe I'll let Ginny do that part. It is her magic wand, after all!

Looks great! We all want magic apple sticks! (I guess once you start with Photoshop, your mind is open to possibilities such as dryer vents.)

Sometimes I long for New England, (like when I look at your pictures). Then I remember that it gets even colder there than it does here. And I think, not so much.

Your pic is very pretty and cool-looking. The novel sounds a little scary though. Not like I wouldn't read it ASAP.
