Pears {This or That Thursday}

I spent a little bit of time playing with some fruit that I had laying around the house. Truth be told, I should be eating it instead of photographing it because it’s like thisclose to going bad, but I couldn’t resist the pretty colors. Did I tell you that I get distracted by shiny? Well, apparently I get distracted by pretty colored food too.

Orange and Pears
I’m also experimenting with Photoshop in preparation for next month’s One in Thirty Photography Challenge, you can read about it here. I didn’t realize how much fun it could be. I mean, I’ve tweaked stuff using Photoshop but learning to manipulate stuff is both fun and intimidating.

Pear

I’ve been watching a lot of tutorials and reading over some of my favorite photography blogs, so that’s helping a lot. And today I found out that my son will be taking Photoshop at school, so I think the fact that I’m teaching him how to drive is payment enough for him to teach me a few things. And, you know, there’s that whole I gave him life thing…

Pear and Newspaper

I haven’t really started playing with textures and actions yet but I think that’s next on my list of things to do. Do you have any recommendations for free actions? If so, leave them in the comments section below.

Red Pear
I’m also thinking that these pears would make some tasty pear tarts. Oooh, or how about dipping them in caramel and rolling them in crushed walnuts? Insert tummy grumble Ummmm, yeah, I think I’m done here…
