I have to tell you… I was a bit concerned that maybe Lorraine was not about to enter anything as I had not heard from her and doubt she is really into this type of thing, and then to my surprise, here comes her entry.
Lorraine: “I always strive to complete these challenges and do the best job I can. However, I have to be honest and admit that I was unable to do this challenge without a lot of help from Mike. I had such a difficult time trying to figure out how to use the Fotor web site, and would not have been able to submit anything without his help.
Also, to be honest, I prefer to do as little to my images as possible. I get a lot of satisfaction from taking a photo as many times as it takes to get it to come out well by adjusting my camera settings, lighting, and background. This being said, I can also understand how people would enjoy and have a lot of fun playing around with their photos in PS and other programs.
Photo art can be amazing and shows a lot of creativity. It takes a lot of learning and working with it. I don’t have a lot of free time and I would rather spend it behind my camera. It’s just a personal preference of mine. I enjoy looking at what others can do in these programs and am often amazed at what they come up with. I’m looking forward to seeing what the crazy women have done!”
So here we have Lorraine’s before image:
