Where I'm From

1. How did you make the theme your own?

I chose something that is very specific to me. I chose to photograph violets because they were my grandma's favorite flower. My grandma died a year before I was born, and, because of her death, my parents got back together (because my mom couldn't deal with the death of her mother alone). Regardless of the long and complicated story, without my grandmother's passing, I wouldn't be here. So she is literally where I am from.

2. What do you like about your photo?

I like the placement of the flowers and the colors.

3. What would you change?

The photo is a little bright and undersaturated, I wish I would have played with the settings more.

4. What actions did you run and what did you do with these actions?

I ran nice and easy to bring down the brightness and heighten the clarity. Then I ran lovely and ethereal to give the photo a nice vintage feel. Then I ran soft and faded to soften the photo.

5. Who's photo was your favorite from last week?

I really liked Haleigh Mccalley's heart photo from last week
