Also known as the series where I share things that I’ve made + things that inspire me.
By me: #100daysofLostMemories day 28-34
I was struggling with #the100dayproject last week, but it has gotten a lot better these past few days. If you didn’t know, I’m doing #100daysofLostMemories over on my Instagram, which means I’m creating something every day inspired by the words “Lost Memories”. And I’m experimenting again, not just doing the same thing over and over again! So I think it’s safe to say that I’m back! Woo! Let’s check it all out!
Some burning boots for day 28! I really like how the legs fade into the trees in this one! Started with this picture of my friend Angelica’s feet inside Stockholms Stadsbibliotek. Also made this that day, which is kinda dreamy and nice! But I wanted fire! Started with this picture so I didn’t really do THAT much to it!
Burning bridges on day 29. Very symbolic. It actually started out like this, but I couldn’t make it square and get both sides in it so I went for the fire side. But I think I prefer it without the clouds too, feels a bit over the top! Anyway, I started with this and then added fire + clouds on top of it. And did some other stuff to enhance the mood, like change the colours and stuff like that.
On day 30 I went out with my prism (a triangular glass stick that I put in front of the lens) and took some pictures of our apple tree’s flowers, and then edited a little bit before uploading it!
Here’s the original!
Also made this that day! It’s actually a picture I took with my phone but I liked it so much I edited it a little bit and made it into this!
On day 31 I only had time to edit one of the prism pictures in my phone. Lowered the saturation a little bit and made the shadows a bit blue to make it fit the mood of my theme a little better. I don’t really think the alien abduction rainbows of the prism feel that “Lost Memories” so I don’t know about this one to be honest.
Inspired by the effects in the prism pictures I decided to try the smudge tool for the first time in ages. It turned out like this, and I like how it slightly looks like the paint experiments I’ve been working on these past few weeks! Started with this picture!
I tried the same technique the next day, and it turned out like this. I found that this doesn’t really look good on all pictures. (I haven’t 100% decided that this looks cool.) So it’s a bit tricky, and the smudge tool is soo slooooooow it’s insane. But it’s fun! Kind of like painting with the picture! Used the clouds from this picture!
Yesterday I realised that the tools I use in Photoshop might exist in Premiere Pro too, so I made a video! It’s a simple one, mostly because I don’t have that much footage, but I’m super excited to experiment more with video with this!!
Anyway, that was everything from this weeks 100dayproject! Follow me on Instagram to keep up! @jandersdotter
By me: Paint experiments
I’ve been playing even more with paints! This is how it all starts! (I ran out of blue and gold so I used black and copper instead.) I just want to play with paint all day long haha.
By me: Glitch art
I tried out Glitch art once ages ago, but decided to experiment with it again. Basically what you do is glitch out files on purpose to alter them. I tried the WordPad-technique, which basically means you open a picture in WordPad and save it and then it comes out something like this! Or a lot of other ways. It’s really random and sometimes it just crashes but it’s fun! And crazy!
Also tried opening the images in HEX-editors but couldn’t get anything really interesting to happen even though I altered it a lot. The most exciting that happened was that the file wasn’t readable anymore.
By someone else: A hundred kites
This article from Tidningen Hammarby/Skarpnäck. These pictures have such a cozy feel about them, and the one with the balloons is just amazing. Basically kids from a school made their own kites and tried them out on Hammarbybacken, a ski slope in Stockholm. Pictures are taken by Sanna Källdén, an old childhood friend. This quote is so nice: ”Det var roligt. Det känns som att man själv börjar flyga lite. Det känns magiskt på något sätt”.
Lumos pics of the week
We got a new rug! It’s green and matches his eyes perfectly. Didn’t manage to get a decent picture where you could see his eyes properly though. But he sure likes his back paw!And here he is sat in the window thinking about climbing it. He realised it was a bad idea before I had to stop him though.
And here he is on the porch we have a net around so he can hang out there without running away. (Except for when he’s fighting the neighbours cat through the net (!) and manages to BREAK IT and get out. He was still right outside when I found him though, but it was panic at the disco that night.) He was very upset because I was outside without him and kept meowing, haha. Silly cat.
I’m back to feeling inspired about my 100 days, and I’m still having fun with the paints. Balloons are nice and my cat is cute! That’s all for this week.
How has your week been?
