So much fun this week. I tried wands and light writers and brushes, etc. I ran out of time to edit the one I wanted to use but looking forward to coming back to it when I get home. I had a lot of nice smooth ribbons with wands that I liked but I decided to post this one because of the unusual texture. I wish that I had noticed to avoid the light on the wall behind!!

First, this is a cell phone photo. I went to a local high school's annual play the other night but didn't bring my "formal" camera with me, which I regard still. When I saw this scene on the stage, I knew I had to give it a shot. Red is associated with the meanings of love, passion, joy, strength, courage, determination and more. I saw those great characters on this group of high schoolers. The last show on this stage was 2019. We all know the story after that. The play was such a success. Back to the image itself, with it being a jpeg phone photo I had limitation on editing quality but I managed to use several skills I have learned in this class and hope to bring some good of it. In addtion to the basic LR, I added a gaussian blur to soft the image first, then add a composite layer to break the totally black and dark stage background. Used brush to clear out some faces from the composite layer. Still wish I have had my camera with me that moment.
