I will admit to being a creature of habit when it comes to photography. I like to photograph certain subjects and edit them in certain ways. I also think that it can be good to try something new. I think that if you try something and it doesn’t really work out, well then at least you have learned something. I take a lot of photographs of birds, one of my favorite places to go to get these images is the World Bird Sanctuary. So, my photo for this week’s challenge is of a Bald Eagle:
What I decided to do differently was in how I did my post-editing. I had been working this past week on an animated GIF project that turned out fairly well. What I had never really tried before is saving a single image as a GIF. So in Photoshop I chose -save for web and then the GIF option in the dialogue box. What I was going for was a more graphic version of this bird, so instead of saving it using all 256 colors, I choose to save using 32. Here is the original version so you can see the difference:
Did it work? in my opinion the answer is both yes and no, what do you think? I’d love to hear your opinion below.
