Stephanie Laird’s digital creations are simply magnificent! I have been drawn to her work from the first moment I saw it. Stephanie proves that it is not the tools that create exceptional art, but the artist behind the tools. All of her art is created using Photoshop Elements, which she has obviously mastered. Stephanie says; “I personally believe that Elements can do just about anything editing wise that the more expensive softwares do.” Not only does Stephanie have this belief, but she offers two E-Books on her website where she provides the detailed ‘how to’ steps for the Photoshop Elements techniques she applies in her work. I purchased her books today, I believe you can ALWAYS learn something new or be inspired by someone’s way of describing their technique; and I wanted to be able to say “they are worth the few dollars she’s asking”! Any photographer out there and especially those who feel restrained because they don’t have the ‘professional editing tools’ that many of us do, should seriously considered spending the $17 for both of her e-books. If you don’t get these types of results when you work in layers, then you’ll learn something from Stephanie. Check out her books here: Stephanie Laird E-Books
Choosing my favorite Stephanie Laird card is not easy, but every time I see this card, I have to stop and admire it. There is something about the silhouette’s that Stephanie creates which are filled with emotion and they evoke feelings in me that either bring cherish memories flooding back, or make me feel as though I could step into the image and become part of it. This card touches me because I have loved and lost so many companions over the years.
Stephanie’s cards are like potato chips, you can’t have just one!
