Photo Recipe - High Key to Olde World
I received flowers last week that were absolutely stunning. As I'm sure many other photographers do, I looked at them the first day and thought they were beautiful. The second day I was walking around them figuring out which ones and how I wanted to photograph them! It was a vase full of tulips in many different colors, but the white one called to me. I do a 52-week challenge with my camera club, and I still hadn't taken my High Key photo, so I decided this was the perfect opportunity. While I love the high-key look, sometimes it's a little too stark.
This one didn't really require much... I used the Venice texture from the Olde World Collection (#3) at 62% opacity. I then created a layer mask and removed some of the texture from the flower. I used a brush at 40% opacity and then went over the places on the flower that still were too dark.
In less than 5 minutes I completely changed the look of this photo! To check out Love That Shot's collections of veils and textures, click here to visit their website! If you would like to see more of my work, please visit my website at www.stacywhitephotography.com
