Thanks for taking a look !
Wow very pretty. Looks kinda like a painting to me. I love it
Interesting effect... can I ask how you did it? Particularly the background.
Thank you very much for the comments !!
The effect I use in my work is called Orton, google it, there is lots
of info on it and not that hard to learn. The bullrush background is
a result from the Orton effect and shallow DOF f/5.6
Ok so it was orton again...
Do you do this for all of your images?
Also, do you actually take multiple frames, or do you mess around with a single image to make the diff exposures?
Hope you don't mind the questions...
I like to help so I don't mind the questions at all. There are a few different
ways to get this look in pp. Basically you take a normally exposed photo,
make it lighter using the midtone (levels) slider. Then add (gaussian blur)
so the photo goes blurry. Then go into blending mode and select
(multiply). Then readjust the (levels) sliders if the photo is to dark and
thats it. Give it a try it is not that hard to learn. Hope this helps.
PS Right now I have been using Orton-effect alot in my work lately
as I really like the look and it seem to be a good match for my photo
style. Hope this helps.
Great photo graph. Love the style.
Interesting! Ok, thanks Dwayne. It was probably a lot harder to do this back in the days when you had to layer slides over each other.
