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!
