Mountains; 5/27/12,5:00:02 PM; Salt Lake City; f/13; Shutter 1/250; NIKON D5100
This border uses the fine art template. I started with a white background, and then added 5 rectangles to create the clipping mask of the mountain image from. Then I added the type on the bottom. My signature was being a pain, and so it didn’t turn out as well as I would have liked, but it works for now.
Sunset; 5/16/12, 8:37:028 PM; Porter Park, Rexburg, Id; f/6.3; Shutter 1/320; NIKON D5100
When I took this picture, I was trying to take portrait pictures for that assignment a few weeks ago, and I loved this sunset. I wish it didn’t have the power lines in it, but I didn’t have the time to edit those out. for the edits, I cropped the picture to get the pole on the side out, then added a new layer with the “multiply” blending mode around it and masked out the middle, leaving a border around the edge, and then added a 5 pt stroke on the inside of the border.
Burned edges (again)
Salt Lake in the Dark; 5/27/12, 9:17:26 PM; Draper, Utah; f/4.2; Shutter 1/10; NIKON D5100
I really liked this sunset as well, and so I did another burned edges border.I took this Memorial day weekend while I was with my family, and I liked it. I used the same technique as above.
Sprayed Edge Border
Sisters!; 5/28/12, 3:39:39 PM; Sandy, Utah; f/5.6; Shutter 1/320; NIKON D5100
For this effect, I started with cropping the picture so it focused more on just my sisters. Then I used a quick mask, and added the “Sprayed strokes” filter to the selection. Then I reversed the selection, and filled the border with the green from the lawn, and added the “Sisters!” text at the bottom.
Double Fade Border
Blue Flowers; 5/28/12, 10:25:57; Draper, Utah; f/8.0; Shutter 1/200; NIKON D5100
Last but not least was the blue flowers. For this border, I cropped the picture to a 9×7 and then added a 1″ border around the outside. Then I added another layer that had a white square with the inside masked out that I used the motion blur filter with a 45 pt distance, and both 0 and 45 degree angles.
