About the Image(s)

Well looking at Debbie’s photo last month gave me some inspiration, so I went out and bought one bunch of glad’s. I then set one stem up to photograph. I used a three light set up and took 31 photographs and then stacked them in photoshop. I then edited them in on1 and lightroom. I created the background in photoshop and blended the flower and background using the lighten mode. In topaz I used a O”Keefe preset and lowered the opacity of the preset to give me the color image. I then took the image and in NIK software I used the solarization preset and adjusted it to my liking. I then went back and reused the O”Keefe preset at a heavier opacity and did some slight adjustments in light room to give me the final image

Very sharp image and detail. The background texture (I assume) you used goes well with the subject in the black and white version. As a suggestion, I think some dark portions of the image, like in the middle of the flowers are too dark and the tone needs to be brought up a bit.   Posted: 08/10/2022 23:38:05
