Creating with Photoshop

I took a Photoshop course last spring and haven't been doing much along those lines over the summer. Perhaps it's the inspiration of the fall colour, or maybe just that it's easier to hang around inside, but I'm trying to create with various layers, camera movement etc...

I think it looks quite painterly... what do you think?

Finding my mojo?

Hello again, friends...

It has been quite a long time since I've posted on this blog. (Yikes, March!!)  I think that's because I had been using this forum to try and find an outlet or a path for my photography. And now I seem to have found it.

I now have a contract with Design Pics, a Canadian stock photography company that has partnerships with other stock companies all over the world. I can submit any images I want as long as they fall within their guidelines, and so far my track record is that they have accepted about a third of what I submit. Once on their sites anyone can buy the use of my images and I receive royalties.

It's a perfect way for me to share my work and helps to give my shooting more of a focus... no pun intended!!

Here are a few examples of some travel images that have been accepted by Design Pics...

Ab.... stract!!

Went shooting around Olympic Village yesterday with my old work buddy, Maggie. We were quickly chased away by the rain but we set ourselves the task of choosing our favourite five photos from the shoot. Here are mine -- all weirdly abstract.

First one includes a piece of red sculpture - made the other triangle b and w

This next is part of an ugly bird sculpture, but you can tell what kind of day it was!!

And this was shot across False Creek, looking at BC Place Stadium, but using my 'signature' deliberate camera movement. 

We wandered away from the Olympic Village and I found this piece of graffiti and shot through the branches of a tree. So sweet!!:)

Was quite taken with Martha Sturdy's studio door

Myanmar travels

Hello Friends,

Yes, it's been a while and Colin and I have truly been exploring. We had a wonderful trip to Myanmar, formerly Burma, arriving Christmas Day and staying for 3 weeks. This isn't really a travel blog, but suffice it to say that the weather, the sites, the countryside and particularly the people were all welcoming and delightful. And, of course, it was a photographer's paradise....

I've already posted a few portraits on Facebook and you can see others if you choose to follow this link to see about 50 other photos.  Judi's Myanmar Images

Below are some with a different feel than the others.... if you prefer full colour, you should head off to the link above. :)

And on that little piggie note......

I plan to be back blogging more regularly as I'm now taking an advanced Photoshop course where I'm excited to be learning more about layering, masking and getting completely creative with my photography.

Meantime, as usual, if you'd like to get in touch, the blog comments don't work properly, so email me directly at
