This week's challenge in Kim Klassen's Beyond Layers was to process an image three different ways. Of course Tucker came to my rescue (hey I rescued him and now he's rescuing me) and posed as my model in my rose garden. Actually at this point it's a weed garden with a few roses. I need to make some time to get in there and weed, trim and all that but it's just not a priority right now. But I digress... I put this collage together with the original (top left) and my three processed versions. See them individually below.
This is right out of the camera with no Photoshop processing. I shot it at Aperture Priority with my 85mm/f1.8 lens using a setting of ISO 100, f/3.5, 1/125.
I started with the processing for the dreamy image above but kept Tucker's right eye clearer in this photo than in the other. Made changes to the adjustment layers and masks and manipulated the background to keep it dark. Used KK's Happy Heart at Soft Light/100% and the new Abstract texture at Multiply/61%.
