This week’s After Before Friday Forum is about the group editing one photographer’s picture. This month, we got to edit a photograph from Cee’s Photography. Cee was one of the first few blogs I found when I started last fall. I instantly fell in love with her fun challenges and interesting photos. So, if you are not part of the AB Friday group or don’t know Cee’s blog, you should definitely check it out.
Now, for the challenge.
For Cee’s photo, I wanted to create an abstract of sorts. So here is what I did in Photoshop CS5:
- While in raw, I changed the lighting to “daylight” hue.
- Applied the colored pencil filter (pencil width 11, stroke pressure 13, and paper brightness 4).
- Added the plastic wrap filter on top of that (Al St. 3, details 1, smoothness 3).
- Cropped the photo some.
- Adjusted the saturation some (hue -22, saturation +26).
- Then I played around in selective color to get the tree more multicolored, which then turned into going to replace the color option. Frankly, I don’t know which adjusts I kept while going back and forth.
Make sure you go to the AB Friday host page, Visual Venturing. Stacy lists her great edit and then links to all of us who play in the challenge. Other than that, Stacy has some amazing photographs on her blog, so it is definitely worth a visit…or 20. 🙂
