It feels like a long time since I’ve posted but I’ve been working on some new stuff so should be able to get back into the swing of things again.
A simple shot of some Silver Birch trees on Wimbledon Common, taken during a brief trip out while suffering from a nasty bout of flu. I was finding it hard to muster any motivation and felt, quite literally, lost in the woods. Add to that a good dose of flu pills and you have a recipe for something either appalling or creative, I hope I managed the latter.
Pretty simple processing on this: Lightroom 4 to make basic adjustments to tone, contrast, exposure etc.
Into Photoshop, duplicate and add vertical blur. Brush out bottom of blur with large, soft brush.
Back to Lightroom, final adjustments to brush in some extra shadow and highlight detail.
