I don’t do many abstracts but when reviewing some shots from earlier this year I felt this image needed a little something. I made a few adjustments in camera Raw then opened it into NIK HDR Effex pro and applied a single exposure filter. From here I applied a couple of filters in photoshop and bumped up the saturation a tad.
This was a frosty morning on the beaver ponds about a month ago, no more snow but a layer of thin ice stayed around for a little while longer.

I discovered Camila Rocha through Twitter – I saw this profile picture of one of her paintings ‘Study of a skull on canvas’ and looked her up. She is actually a tattoo artist originally, Brazilian born but travels with her talent to countries including the UK and now resides in LA studying fine art painting at the Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Arts. I find her path an inspiring one, I recommend reading more about her on her site and facebook page. She says;
‘I’ve discovered in tattoos a reason to live for…. Now I found a new passion, Fine Art Paintings’
I’m looking forward to seeing more of her paintings.
