This self-assigned project was designed to advance my Photoshop skills. I wanted to create a shot that was a bit more graphic in nature and used colors to help evoke the mood. I wanted to move from a literal photograph toward a more interpretive image. While I’m quite happy with the results, I’m even happier with the big smile I got from Nancy when I showed her the results.
Nancy was so fun to work with on this project. She provided the wardrobe and the gorgeous looks. I clicked the camera.
Photo shoot: Nikon D90. One Broncolor Flash unit with white umbrella. 1 hour
Photoshop: 3-4 hours working mainly with Retouching Techniques, Layer Masks, Filter Gallery and Hue/Saturation levels.
