Prompt: http://robynsfineart.wordpress.com/2014/12/01/one-four-challenge-dec-wk-1/ One Image Four Ways Challenge
I took this photo of a woodland in Holland in late spring. I was disappointed with the result for the forest looked far more vibrant than my photographic capture. Looking through a book on digital imaging today I found a technique that simulates the darkroom process of lith printing and thought it might could transform the image and make it more interesting.
The instructions in the book I had were rather hard to follow but did result in a transformed photo. I quite like the oriental look but I have no idea where I’ll go with the image next week.
Photoshop processes used:
1. Create a new Black and White Adjustment Layer and use the Preset Infra Red in the drop down box. Use the Sliders to adjust the image.
2. Create a New Adjustment Layer – Curves and click on Green in the Channel drop down box. Adjust Curve to a steep S shape.
3. Repeat Process 2 but click on Red in the Channel drop down box.
4. Flatten Image and add a Film Grain Filter.
