Took me a while to get this one right. I used my tripod and a remote shutter release to capture these cherry tomatoes. Overhead kitchen light, window light and flash were all used in this photo. Processed in Photoshop Elements, the photo was cropped and a high pass filter applied.
First hibiscus blossom of the year! Found it hiding amongst the lemon balm. Processing in Photoshop Elements by adjusting levels, burning, and adding a 50% opacity layer of Topaz cartoon adjusted. Thanks to everyone who stopped by Tammy’s Blogger of the Month article on the Virtual Photowalk 2010 home page. I really appreciate all of you!!
Camera settings: Canon T1i, F/5, 1/30 sec., ISO 200, focal length 41 mm. No flash.
Had a tough time with this one. I used my light box but with only a strong overhead light and camera flash. After about 40 tries, I got this one. I used white Karo syrup to make the strawberry “juice” and added a little crushed berry. I wanted to add a little red food coloring to the syrup but couldn’t find mine. AArrgh!. Anyway, I just adjusted levels on the final and added an outline.
Saw this old roadster in Cambria, CA. Though I would love to drive it, too. . . I think it is pretty masculine! I think of most things as pretty much gender neutral, but this does look like a man’s car. I cropped the original, adjusted levels and sharpness. I used a white soft brush on a separate layer to take out distracting cars, street, etc. I then applied Topaz Simplify watercolor. Burning brought back the rich color and framework of the windshield.
