My Mother’s Rose: Photoshop Addiction, Part II
November 4, 2009 by In the Quiet
- This is the original, straight out of the camera. I was entranced. I spent minutes, whole minutes admiring what I had achieved with my little point-and-shoot. (And hoping I could remember how to do it again.) But then, I felt the tug…
It started with a simple crop. I wanted an eye full of those exquisite, creamy petals. Perfect! I'll never take another picture again.
Maybe I'll just run one teeny-tiny little action. "Sunshine" with the opacity of the light layer adjusted for a little less, well, "sunshine". Just a bit of a golden glow. Ah, now I remember why I like this so much!
One more, then I'll stop. "Soft and Faded". That's it, this is my favorite!
See? I can stop when I want to. I don’t have a problem! Unless I’m in danger of crossing the line between enjoying one’s work and flagrant narcissism.
But isn’t that what a blog is for?
PS: These Photoshop effects were achieved almost exclusively through the use of these actions sets, courtesy of The Pioneer Woman.
