IMG_4817This week we are having a go at one of the activities from the 2020 Creativity Challenge.  You may have your own smartphone or see if someone in your family will help you use theirs.  There are lots of ways you can edit a photo on a phone, or whichever technology you like to use.  Cath, our Education Officer, had a lot of fun taking a photo of Silver, her old hobby horse.  “Silver got his name because my mum made him for me in 1977, the year of the Queen’s Silver Jubilee!  I had a go at trying out all the effects and decided on the Silvertone filter because it suited his name!  I played with exposure, contrast and shadows to make the texture of his fur stand out and chose Vignette at the end to make it look like an old photo.  What I really like about this image is that it hides all the fading and dusty marks, making Silver look as good again as he did 43 years go.  I’ll certainly have a go at a bit more photo editing in future.” Don’t forget to share the photos of your favourite toys with us too!
