Close-up shot of a honeybee on my coneflowers. Layered with Kim Klassen's 'cotton candy' & 'greyday
slate' textures. I also played with hue & saturation a bit. Added a little bit of vignette around the edges.
Was able to capture this close-up of a butterfly on my coneflowers. I layered this photo with Kim's
'cotton candy', 'greyday slate' & 'cloudy day' textures. I've gotten pretty bad at NOT writing down my 'recipes'. When I start playing in photoshop I get so carried away that I forget to save a copy and I merge my layers before writing down what I did. I'll have to get better at that.
The above photo is layered with Kim's newest textures- 'scratched magic' & 'scripted edges'. I vaguely remember that for this one I did use one of the layers (scripted edges, I believe) on color burn, plus I bumped up the saturation to get this vivid purple. I also masked the scratched magic and erased it over the flowers.
Not sure which purple coneflower photo I like best. Hmmmmmm? Each one is so different. I altered the honeybee photo first and really liked it! Then when I altered the butterfly one, that was my fave.
Then yesterday after downloading Kim's newest textures I just had to play with those and the last photo became my favorite!
Last week on Wordless Wednesday I also used a shot of my purple coneflowers done in b & w.
At that time, that was my favorite...
I guess I'm entitled to change my mind. I'm having a ton of fun photographing my flowers this summer.
Not sure if it was that long, cold winter but my coneflowers are prettier than ever.
Live your life creatively & always carry your camera~
