Before & After Examples

.
.

Vintage Hydrangea
..............................................{After}

DSC_6178BEFORE

Camera: Nikon D700
Lens: 85mm
Mode: Manual
Exposure: 1/2000
Aperture: f/2.0
Focal length: 85mm
ISO: 320

Post Processed in Photoshop CS4: After cropping the photo, I duplicated the background layer and used the clone stamp tool even out the background. Then I used my Florabella Textures: "Bombay" at 29% (overlay blending mode),"Ginger" at 11% (linear burn), "Ginger" again but at 21% (screen), and "Milk & Honey" 15% (screen). On the Bombay layer, I used a layer mask at opacity 35% to lightly erase the textures from the focal point areas. Basically, just cropping & textures! :)

.................................................{Before}


Camera: Nikon D700
Lens: 85mm
Mode: Manual
Exposure: 1/1600
Aperture: f/1.8
Focal length: 85mm
ISO: 320

Post Processed in Photoshop CS4: First I duplicated the background layer and used the clone stamp tool to fill in missing parts of the background. Then I duplicated the layer again and desaturated a bit to make the colors less bright. I duplicated the layer yet again and changed the blending mode to "screen" and changed the opacity to 60%. Then I used my Florabella Textures: "Patina" at 18% (linear light blending mode), "White Linen" at 16% (screen), and "Milk & Honey" 35% (normal). On the Patina and White Linen layers, I used a layer mask at opacity 35% to lightly erase the textures from the focal point areas. Voila! :)

  8. Thanks for sharing Shana :) I'm not sure if this is where to ask but I'll go ahead here. I understand the concept of duplicating layers but I am curious... do you always duplicate the original layer? or do you duplicate the copy layer? I don't always have the best luck when I duplicate so I know I must be doing something wrong.


    Again, thanks for sharing your fabulous processing with us!

    xo,
    Jess
