Something About Still Life Photography

Last Wednesday I started to create a concept for our common homepage (one of my tasks). I drove to Stade to present my ideas I had to my friend but he was sidetracked by so many “important” things so that I wasted my time waiting for him… Wasting time – not my thing! I discovered some nice accessories to create some still life arrangements

The rest of the story: No results except of a “Sorry that I had no time for you, but I had a lot of things to do” from my friend.  So why did I spend my time to drive to Stade? For nothing? Ooooooh no!

– I have some new ideas to make some still life photography and the first two of them I wanna share with no one else but you!

– I’ll do more for myself (and believe me I’m selfish – NOT!).

– I’ll create my own homepage

Et Voilà! – here are my attempts

#1 “Big Brother Is Watching You”

# 2 “Views Of Application Photos”

a sunny and colorful weekend to all of you!

May I ask you for some tips

My idea is to create a header for my project "go for 2" and to involve you creative people who make such wonderful works here on vox ( only if you like to)…..

After I created the header for my vox-page my friend Olli asked me – after he had a look at it – to create one for our forthcoming homepage "" (still under construction). He did like the idea and the colors that – on his opinion – are matching to our music we make. For those who still don't know "go for 2" here is a song of us..

First I started to collect some photos out of my files, which reflect the mood of our music. I created my own tagwords that symbolize our music and that should be communicated by our header… These tagwords are: mood, no flash, universe, warmth, creation, joy, message, groove, harmony, love, awake, sense

… then I added our logo and some text (tagwords) and – after processing the photos with different tools on PSE – I created some layers: Here they are…

It was a great joy for me to discover what is possible to create with the toolbar and layers on PSE. I still had to work a lot with exposure, saturation, replacing colors, contrast etc. until everything was allright for me. My friend will visit me today in the evening and I'm sure we will have to discuss what could be made better. For the first

                                                                   this is my proposal

                              If you have any ideas or improvement suggestions give me some words…

                                      Thank you!

Some exercises on PS-Elements

This is one of the first approaches to work with some layers on Photoshop and my entry to this group at the same time. I've already seen a lot of wonderful works in here that brought the message: 'be with it'.
