All That Jazz

I’ve been taking shots of just anything around the house so that I can have images to process into Aperture. It seems to make more sense to learn to use the software with my own images than it does with a bunch of canned samples.

For this shot, I tossed the cases of a bunch of my jazz CDs on the bed and started shooting. Then when it came time to process these shots, the thought came to process them as greenish monochromes rather than black and whites or sepias.

    This is a great! Love the head shots….they’re just in the right position in the photo. Not too much and not too little…

    I agree; I like the slight greenish tone used. I’ll have to see if my Paint shop program has that…I think it does.

    Thanks Scottie!

    These are just a handful of CDs I had close at hand. You should see my albums …. :-O

    uhm, what happened? Where did you go? Where’s all the cool new pics you were supposed to have posted by now? Oh, I get it…. You got sidetracked listening to ‘all that jazz’.
