I have to admit I love this one right off the bat.  The portrait is just a free stock photo with this month’s feature photo for the One Four Challenge.  That is, we take one photo and edit it four different ways during the month.

Week Two.web.

This week’s editing process in Photoshop:

  • Smart sharpen
  • Exposure+
  • Offset-
  • Brightness+
  • Contrast-
  • Posterize
  • Shadows & Highlights
  • Bring up face.
  • Reduce contrast, increase brightness.
  • Paste glass wall over face.
  • Adjust opacity
  • Merge and flatten layers.
  • Crop.
  • Increase saturation and dark levels.
  • Increase gamma correction.
  • Burn in various areas.

The natural world is phenomenal and so much of the man-made world - our architecture, our cities - are stunning accomplishments. They exist hand in hand in both beautiful expressions and sometimes disastrous manifestations. Our entire existence with the natural and the invented is intertwined – each dependent on the other, even as my art evolves, each breathing in the wake of the other. Surface design is one aspect of the process that I love. I thoroughly enjoy the play with color, value and construct, particularly the improvisation which starts with one thing, an idea, a glimpse of a vision, perhaps something that captures my eye for a moment in time and it grows organically. I become focused on whatever piece I'm working on and follow my muse to find my way.
