A storm blew through tonight, bringing blessed cooler air with it. The past several days here in Maryland have been sticky and uncomfortable but this evening feels absolutely delicious.
The skies are pink as I write this and my husband is outside with the camera. Earlier this evening I was fooling around in Aperture mode and shot this photograph inside the dining room at the back window, using a small aperture because the light was low.
It was getting dark and I didn’t have enough light to begin with, so I messed around with it in Photoshop to get it where I wanted it. Roll over with your mouse to see the original photo.
I like the end result.
Here’s the formula I used to get it, if you’re interested in that sort of thing:
Lighten Brighten from Florabella’s Vintage Set, opacity lowered.
Vintage Haze from the same set, opacity around 80%
Les brumes texture, soft light around 80%
Shadowhouse Creations Grunge border brushes, different opacities
And here’s how to do the mouseover trick.
Just a simple question for Friday and because inquiring minds want to know . . .
What are your plans for the Memorial Day weekend?
Until tomorrow, then . . .
