Before and After

Posted: May 30, 2016 in Uncategorized
Here is the original. I was testing a green fabric background to see how it worked out, but it had a little to much texture.


I did a little crop and cloned out the extra stem and a few dust spots. Then went into Nik Software’s Viveza and dropped a control point on the background and slide the Structure slider to the left which took out most of the details of the texture from the fabric background. I also played a little with the brightness darkening it just a little.


Last I took the image into Nik Software’s Color Efex Pro 4 and click on the Low Key filter. It added a nice dramatic look darkening down the background and pulling out the highlights on the stem and flowers.
