I thought that this week was a good time to discuss using special effects when processing your photos. I am just experimenting with a few for fun and thought I would show you the results.
There are a wide variety of special effects filters, overlays, and brushes available through many different developers. These filters are all from the Pretty Actions Fairyland and Fireflies collection.

As you can see, I went a little crazy, but sometimes that is exactly what you need to do to learn a new technique or a new software application. Experimentation is what makes you become a better photographer. Experimentation is what gives you more experience and allows you to offer more customization to your photographs and to your clients. It is also just plain fun!
I hope you all get the chance to do some experimentation on your own, with your camera and with your computer!
