A Simple Set-Up For Creative Effects
by Stacey G. Lloyd
In an age of abundant paint software and texture apps, it is easy to overlook other approaches to painterly image creation. Using moving sheets of textured glass with slow shutter speeds is one alternative approach. When combined with flowers I call the result “Floral Fusions”.

What began in 2004 as a social networking service for Harvard students has rapidly grown into an international phenomenon with social, political, business and cultural implications for users of all ages. With over 158 million users in the U.S. (and almost a million world-wide), Facebook now reaches nearly 75% of Internet users in our country.
In late 2007 Microsoft purchased a 1.6% share in Facebook for $240 million, giving the company a total valuation of around $15 billion. By 2009 Facebook was ranked as the most widely used social networking site in the world, and a year later an estimated 42% of the U.S. population had a Facebook account. In September 2009 Facebook announced it had become cash-flow positive for the first time, and a year later it was valued at $14 billion—becoming the third-largest U.S. internet company behind Google and Amazon.
