This video shows the post-processing techniques used to create the photo "Spiral Eyes". I used both Lightroom and Photoshop. I talk about dodging and burning in Lightroom, adding an overlay and using blend modes in Photoshop. Finally, I show how the mirror image effect is achieved in Photoshop.
It’s summer and I’ve made a trip to Colorado to visit family. Colorado is nothing if it’s not varied. There are the aspens and sweeping mountain views, but Colorado is also the southwest (the hint is in the name: Color-Red). There are flat plains (the Kansas part of Colorado) and desert – which is where I was heading.
This trip, I was in the mood for some desert sand dunes.
