I have been all over the map with my photos…. today I photographed apples, hydrangea, dried peonies and red cabbage….. (Not all at the same time…. of course.) Dark and moody, light and airy…. and lots of in between…..
You see, I’ve been working away at new content for Start to Finish…. So many possibilities….so many ideas…..I’m so excited … Class starts next week already!!
Wondering where the time goes…… ‘sigh’….
Anyhow, just one photo today….. My lovely hydrangeas on black……..I just think they are a miracle flower…Seriously could they be more lovely?
For some reason, my before and after isn’t working….. It’s a mystery…. (hoping to get that resolved soon)…..Anyhow….
I started in Lightroom by applying my dark light preset. From there, I darkened the shadows as well as increased the blacks…..
Next into photoshop for a touch of Magic….. Today’s freebie magic-0916 at screen blend mode.
Here’s a quick video tutorial if Magic textures are new to you.
Please note…. for my up-top photo I used a screen opacity of 32%…. super subtle. I left the opacity a little higher in the video so it would be easier to see the results.
You can find more free tutorials like this on my Vimeo channel.
