Snap & Zap: Take A Walk On The Wild Side…

For each Snap & Zap I will suggest a new theme so take a new photo or use an existing photo and edit it with any software you like, so…

  1. Create a new post showing the original
  2. What edits have you made?
  3. What software/techniques have you used?
  4. Link back to the current week’s page

The theme for this “Snap & Zap…” is Walking.

This is the original photo. Greg walking along the coast near the lighthouse in Torry, Aberdeen.

I cropped the photo…

I then wanted to give the photo a blurry glow and the Sara filter seemed to do this quite well…

Next, I thought a canvas look would look good so I added a canvas fabric overlay…

I really wanted to get a 3D boxed canvas effect but spent almost an hour trying to find something that would do it that didn’t involve PhotoShop and I failed at that so then I got a little bit carried away with the effects…
