Thank God for tutorials because I am the least tech-savvy person in the world. I am a huge fan of the #nofilter culture (not because I think rawness of a natural photo captures the essence of our contemporary era of food snapping, but because I have no idea how to edit). The GIMP software is really NO joke and I am almost sure this is probably one of the easier programs to work with. I just suck, LOL. But it happens. Practice makes perfect. Rome wasn’t built in a day. Right? Right.
Anyways, the photograph I chose to sample as my header features a pair of Rag & Bone’s menswear inspired, patent leather, pointed-toe shoes (shame on me for not remembering the silhouette’s name). I am a fan of minimalism as well as dressing in monochrome because of its classic timelessness: no matter what era, black, white, and your favorite 50 shades of grey will always be in style. I struggled aimlessly trying to crop and skew, as well as adjusting the color, brightness, sharpness, and everything in between.
It definitely is still a work in progress. And knowing how picky and indecisive I am, this first attempt at photo editing will probably not remain my header.
