A photo-shoot I recently did for my wife. Model: Evelina. Yesterday I published the B&W images (which I prefer). Here some colour pictures. Post-processing with McPhun IntensifyPro, -Tonality and -Aurora plus a bit of Photoshop and more bits with LandscapePro and PortraitPro.
For this imaginary I used 23 different (refined) textures for the background. Here and there I added the running kids, my feet and other (hardly visible) objects between the layers. For the ‘finishing touch’ I used (with many times an ‘undo’) the ‘content aware’ tool of Photoshop.
This imaginary is inspired by the Russian born artist Marc Chagall. All used images were made within a radius of 2 km from my home.
Just snap shooting with Sony 16-50mm lens mounted on the A77 camera. Few pics have been cropped but no other editing in Photoshop. Me and my wife Yvonne live in Stanford, Western Cape that was recently awarded with “Best Village Destination in South Africa”. Yes we are privileged! And yes; we do have a very unusual garden with some plants and plant combinations that stimulate one’s imagination. But we’ll come back on this subject in the next posting.
As promised in yesterday’s posting herewith some ‘cross-breeds’. It turned out that, this time, simple thinking (bottom image) in working with photoshop is resulting in the best imaginary…..
