Each week a group of international pet photographers tackles a new topic!  This week was ‘magic.’  I decided to depict an enchanted scene made possible by the ‘magic’ of Photoshop.  I envisioned a horrible King Crow stealing away with a golden bone.

This isn’t my Jack or Julie of course;  this is sweet Santa, a mini greyhound.  She was in the studio this week and I thought this image would be perfect for what I was planning.  I searched the internet and found an image of a crow and an enchanted forest (Photo Credit Crow:  Violet Klenert and Photo Credit Forest:  Tara Naomi).  Then with the use of Photoshop brushes for the bone, grass and twinkles, lots of masking, color adjustments and blending modes in Photoshop and a nice grungy texture,  this was created.  These are the source images:

Once again this weekly project has encouraged me to try something new!     Now let’s see how other pet photographers interpreted this magical theme.  This is a blog circle, so click on the links at the bottom of each post until you end up back here.  First up is Spotty Nose Pet Photography in Los Angeles.   Have a magical time!
