The last (for the time being) of the layer posts and this time it’s about even more subtle layering.
This was taken as a simple abstract but a light blue/brown helped it along nicely. Not too obvious, but then that’s the theme of the post…
Next a Lensbaby shot which was taken on a stormy day by the coast. The post-processing added an extra boost to an otherwise so-so image.
Finally one with a vignette, and the same image as number one layered to add something to an otherwise grey featureless sky.
Layering is a useful technique to add a bit of extra mystery and atmosphere to a shot which is graphically promising but lacks a certain ‘something’ – especially shots taken under flat skies. Give it a try using the hundreds of free layer/texture images on the web, or even better, shoot or create your own.
All shots taken for the book market, hope you like them and thanks for looking.
I really love the last shot with the stark contrast between the fence and the sky.
I like the soft colors in the first shot. And you are correct, experimenting is important and sometimes even fun!
