This is a photo that’s been sitting in my archives for ages, I didn’t like the dark wood I had shot against so it had been rejected. This afternoon I had a bit of time to play and managed, quite easily too, to disguise the darkness. It’s inspired me, so hope it might inspire you too!
So here’s how I did it…
Oxford Parchment @ Hard Light 75%
Peach blush @ Screen 100% Masked as desired from the focus areas
Aquarius @ Hard light 52% masked as above
Brushed Rose @ overlay 8% this just added a little warmth
Curves and levels adjustments to tweak tone
And voila! An image transformed!
