This week's lesson was not a new lesson, rather we took a "breather". In these images I worked on composition a little more - also worked with light (from the side). I need to figure out a place where I can photograph a still life with light from the back. So I'll return to that lesson. In the first image I used Kim's "Like a Dream" preset but bumped up the contrast a bit. I also used an impasto texture called "Rumba" from French Kiss Textures. It gives the image a painterly look.
I used Kim's "Providence" preset on the image below and then added text in PS.
On the final image below I adjusted in Lightroom and then used a filter in Topaz Adjust.
I took shots from different angles. I like shooting from above.
If you want to learn how to do these various techniques, I highly recommend Kim's classes. I've taken several and they are all outstanding with great videos, concise explanations and all the tools one could want for editing photos. A friendly community of fellow photo editing artists await you too.
I'm submitting this for Texture Tuesday and Be Still.
