ANOTHER BEFORE AND AFTER!
Some people have been emailing me and wondering when I will add something new to my blog!
I have been quite busy as of lately trying to establish some new markets for my work so I've been neglecting it a little lately but I"m very glad to know that people find the blog interesting, Lol! :)
So, I was editing this image Friday and thought it would make an interesting post because I too was quite surprised how this image turned out!
Here are some Before and After images:
(1) I started out with the first image. It was taken about 3 weeks ago in my favorite secret spot in a forest nearby. I used my Canon 5D but with the Lensbaby Composer Pro and the Sweet 35 Sweet Optic lens. I love the look it gives and is a good base for a "Creepy cabin in the woods effect"
(2) Then I copied and pasted a cabin image I shot this summer...played around a little with it to make the right size and did a little motion blur also to make the crop fit perfectly in the forest and flattened it!
(3)I then ran it through OnOne software Perfect Effects to get a red hellish effect I was looking for and because the tree background was quite distorted with the Lensbaby to my amazement it gave this hellish forest fire look which I love! Finally, I put a dark vignette around the image to made it darker at the bottom so there would be plenty of room for text. This image was created for RM book-covers and not for RF stock.
That's it...you just never know how an image will turn out and it's always a surprise for me!
Here is the finished image:
