Happy New Year! I Heart Faces has been around for a year; I think I first started entering contests in February. This week, it’s an “I Heart Faces” theme, and up to five pictures can be posted. They must contain the “I Heart Faces” logo in one way or another. I feel a bit crippled without Photoshop, but I did my best to play along. When you’re done here, you HAVE to go there to look at the other entries; the ones I’ve seen so far are just amazing!
My first entry was created before this contest was ever announced. It was my profile photo on Facebook and my blog for quite a while. Yeah, I “might” be a little obsessed with I Heart Faces; ya think?
I even love IHF so much that I dressed my dog. I firmly believe that God supplied animals with all of the wardrobe they’ll ever need, but I made an exception for this contest. You can see just how much sweet Blackie loves being a fashion diva. heh.
OK, this picture is just strange desperation. I had printed a pic of my face for something for my boy, so then I printed the “Amy and Angie” pick button and put it next to the photo. It’s a face, OK? It counts. Hush.
Two words here. No Photoshop. sorry. (I ordered a new computer from Dell on 12/10, and I have PS Elements sitting here in the box. Dell keeps emailing to extend the ship date… grrr). Anyway… try to imagine what this would look like “if” I had Photoshop.
And this one is just plain silly. No real face shots here, unless fish faces count. But it’s fun, and really, isn’t that what this contest is all about? (What? It’s actually about photographic proficiency? Noooooo…)
So, there you have it. Five
loser great pictures that showcase just how much I’ve learned during the past year. SORRY, Amy and Angie… I’ll try to do better next week. Pinky swear. Y’all run on over to I Heart Faces and check out some real talent, ‘kay? (Update: I played around some more in Picnik and figured it out a little bit better. To see how far I came, even without Photoshop, go here. Those are not contest entries… but I just wanted to prove the point that IHF is all about learning!)
