Writing with Light

Pinch & Twirl Abstract

There are many photographers that I follow that inspire me and that I learn from on a daily basis.  I try new techniques, some work and some don’t, but I thought it would be nice to share some of these with you. A couple of months ago Denise Ippolito created a blog post called “Red, White & Blue Abstracts” where she presented two images she created using different filters in Photoshop, namely the pinch, twirl and wave filters. I loved the look so much that I wanted to give it a try with some flower pictures I had taken.

Here’s the result…

Would love to know what you think.
