Filter and Mask Edits
January 24, 2011 § 2 Comments
For the first edit I used what is called a filter mask in Photoshop. The photo was taken using a flash in a dark area, so the flower was brighter than the background. I used the mask to lighten the background while maintaining the original brightness of the flower.
For the second edit I used a smart filter. I decided to used the black and white charcoal effect only the background and I used a brush to restore the flower to 75% opacity.
