New Horizon

This week, we’re challenging you to think ahead and show your work in a representative photo…The goal is to get out of the busy “now,” and imagine your new horizon. Go!
—WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge

As luck would have it this week, I have been experimenting with a new facet of my photography and it fits right in to this challenge. I have been working to make instead of take a photo and in this case I used the Matter app by Pixite.

In order to learn the ins and outs of the app I added four other-worldly elements to a background photo donated to Pixite by Adrian Pelletier. I was able to rotate, resize and move the different objectss around until I was satisfied with the results.


Next year my goal is to do more Art than Photography with my mobile smartphone camera and see where that leads me. Stay tuned for the transition.

    Love your creation, Allan. The graphic elements work well together. Haven’t heard of Matter but it sounds like you are in for hours of experimenting. Fun!

    Fascinating, Allan. I look forward to seeing where you’ll take this. I know it will be somewhere good and creative.

    Defiantly ART! Something from a SyFi movie! You rock Matter App. It flummoxes me every time.

      I have had the same frustrating experiences as you have until this week, Carol. I did something different this time: save. I added one element at a time, worked with it until I was happy and saved the photo. Then I opened that photo as a new one and added the next object, saved, re-opened, etc. until I was finished.

      There is probably an easier way and I will eventually find it. Until then it is save, open, save.
