What I Am Working On: Photo to Wood Transfer, Making Decisions

I wrote in my previous post on this project that I had figured out the process of transferring a photo to wood. Now for the next two steps, choosing the photos and figuring out the layout on the wall. I chose the photos first. For this particular wall, I am displaying a selection of images from our time living in England. The process of going through the photos took a while, but it was fun to look back through everything. I narrowed it down to 45 images. Then I got some input from my husband. Then I narrowed it down. Then I got some more input and it expanded the number of images. The final number of images ended up at 19. At this point, I took all the images and in Luminar AI added the template, Travelogue. What this does is give them all the same finish. I chose this particular template for a few reasons but an important one was that it muted the colors of the images a bit. With 19 images this wall will be somewhat busy. It’s a lot to look at, and I did not want the colors to be too screamy:

All photos are 4×6 on wood.

Then I measured the wall and created a spreadsheet in Excel:

Then I took a screenshot of the spreadsheet and opened it in Powerpoint and arranged the photos:

This gives me an idea of what the wall will look like when it is finished. When all the woodblocks are finished it will be time to put them up on the wall!

Daily Record Weekly Photo Wrap-Up: Week 93

My photos this week are mostly about growth. I think that has a lot to do with the fact that Spring is beginning to show up here:

Welcome to this week’s installment of my daily photographic record. Posts in this series will be photos from the week before, roughly Friday through Friday. This, once a week, wrap-up post will publish on Sunday. The photos for this post will be in a gallery format, they will have all been taken on my phone. The captions on the photos will be an indication of the photo-editing software used to edit them, or simply “as shot” for those that are unedited. *hopefully temporary update*  The caption function is not functional on the new block editor in WordPress. So, I have added the editing note to the title which is visible if you click to view the gallery.

Writing a weekly wrap up with a gallery is a way for me to gather my thoughts on what has caught my attention in the previous week. It will be a way of filtering through what I am thinking about photographically. I’ll also be able to come back to these posts and look at what trends emerge over time.

As with all my posts, your comments are welcome. I appreciate your interaction with my work here on this blog. It is my intention to publish in this series on Sunday. Every Sunday that is possible. Looking at my year, I already know there are some weeks where I will not be close enough to my technology to make a post possible. In an effort to keep this project pleasant for myself, I won’t be attempting catch-up posts.

Hope to see you in the comments below and in this space next week!

Cheers!

Daily Record Weekly Photo Wrap-Up: Week 92

The photos that ended up in this week’s collection were all taken outside. A sign of the warmer weather, there is no snow featured. While things are a mucky mess here as the seasons change, this is reflected in the brown tones of all the images:

Daily Record Weekly Photo Wrap-Up: Week 91

This was a week of contrasts as the weather swung back and forth between winter and spring. The result was a collection of images that look like they could have been shot on different weeks:

Daily Record Weekly Photo Wrap-Up: Week 90

A pleasant but starkly cold week here this past week, I think this week’s photos sum that up fairly well:
