Vintage Shasta can – ABFriday week 32
For my After Before Friday post today, I choose to edit a photo I took of the old Shasta can I found. And also the butterfly I found. I perched the butterfly on the can just because it needed to be somewhere. The more I looked at it though, I thought it would make a cool photo.
I wanted the edited photo to be really edgy. Kinda Andy Warholish.
I started with the RAW file on Photoshop, bumped up the colors, the clarity, and the vibrance.
I used a subtle HDR action and adjusted it to where I wanted it. I love how it brought out so much clarity in the rust of the can. Even the blue in the mountains popped out more.
This is the original photo. Kinda blah to start with.
Al thought the old can idea would make a fun painting, so did his own version.
Pretty cool I must say.

Have a very awesome Friday!!
