ABFriday-One photo focus
Today is the one year anniversary of the After Before Friday forum. I found this lovely idea at the end of the year, and started participating in January. I have really learned a lot from everyone who takes part in this, and it has been a great experience.
Stacy, from Visual Venturing, is the host, master mind, and hard worker behind this every week. The first Friday of the month, we all edit the same photo from one of the participants. Today, we are editing Stacy’s image. When Stacy sent this image out, she said it was the house where Mork and Mindy was filmed. I loved that show, and yes I am that old. Because it was such a funny and goofy show, made so by the late Robin Williams, I wanted to give the image a slightly cartoonish look.
This is the image before edits. Isn’t this just the neatest house?! I love this style.
The photo needed darkening, and help bringing out all the great colors and shapes. I started with that, then added an HDR preset that helped even more. This brought out the colors and clarity I wanted. I also cropped the fence along the bottom just a little. I then played around with the artistic filters in Photoshop and decided the watercolor one worked the best. A few minor changes, made a big difference.
To see what everyone else did with this photo, head over to Visual Venturing.
Have a great weekend!!
