Who Do You See?
Suby/Lord Vader/Me/Subomi is back momentarily. (God I can hear the knives being sharpened :) )
I decided to put up an image just to remind people I AM STILL ALIVE :) What have I been up to, watching, chilling, being evil, catching up with some editing and just allowing Sinem to have fun on the Blog. She has been doing a wonderful job and I have to say I have been soo soo proud of her.
Who Do You See?
I took this shot last week Saturday on Sinems & myselfs trip to London. The truth is Sinem got more stonking images then I did. We were sharing the use of the faithful 20D and that sort of spoilt my Mojo so decided oh well the camera is going to be hers soon so why not just let her have fun. I am glad I did cause she impressed me with the shots she took.
Why did I take this shot? Was scanning the crowd for anything to shoot when this image just popped unto my viewfinder, he looked different, and in the split of a second, I had decided in my head the framing, the editing and I had also managed to snap the shot (my super human powers coming to bear her). I got home looked at the image, but cause it was surrounded by so many duff shots taken by Suby, I sort of skipped over it.
I took the camera out to shoot today, got some lovely shots, but for some funny reason I kept on thinking about this shot. So as soon as I got home, sat down at my desk, a few touches on CS2 we have the image above.
So cause of what made me take the shot in the 1st place, I ask you this question, Who Do You See when you look at this shot?
(Okay something I do not normally do - I'm lazy like that) Processing Info: Colour saturation of the background with layers, Adjustment of the background with adjustment layers. New adjustment layer adjusting each colour channel with curve tool. Slight increase of contrast (+7) using the contrast slider.
