ANOTHER DAY INTO NIGHT! (BEFORE AND AFTER BUT WITH SNOW)

I thought I would share another image that was daytime originally and turn it into a snowy winter night scene. The image is a composite of three images. The technique I used is very similar to a previous image I did here:
Plugin I used is Perfect Effects from onOne Software...it's a great tool for creating special effects for you images. I also added a snow effect in the last image to give it a cold snowy winter effect!
Just a little tip: I keep all my snow and rain filter effects in a PNG. form...then it's so easy to drop them in when working in Photoshop. :)
Here is a Before and After of the image:

HOW TO CREATE DIFFERENT SPACES AND MOODS IN THE SAME STUDIO!

I love where I live but it is a modern condo and even though it's windows and rooms are great for a contemporary look I use in my images sometimes  it can't give me a rustic look I love and look for sometimes!
I don't have old looking windows with character but I have found a solution...I purchased a fake window and placed in my back door studio!  It is perfect for still life shots that don't require a lot of room. Here are some shots of the faux window and how it was used in my work! 



I often shoot my bedroom which has a more modern feeling and look...it works very well for certain  shoots I do but my heart and favorite mood and look is the rustic country life! :)
I did a shoot yesterday and created a fake bed in my studio...
it offered me a little more of a country shabby chic look and feeling...I like the way they came out and I think I will try it more often!! 

Hope this gives you some fun and interesting ideas to try. Have fun!! :)
