Here is the photo I used for this week. This image is a 1915 portrait taken in a studio in Los Angeles, California.
And, then after applying some Photoshop magic with the aid of two of Kim's textures, this is the beautiful result.
This is what I did to the image.
Recipe (Layer 1 is bottom layer, Layer 7 is top layer):
Layer 1: Original photo
Layer 2: Duplicate of Original photo
Layer 3: kk_sweettart Blend Mode Linear Burn, Opacity 70%
Layer 4: kk_sweettart Blend Mode Saturation, Opacity 100%
Layer 5: kk_stainedLinen Blend Mode Overlay, Opacity 100%. Then using layer mask removed texture from face area.
Layer 6: Hue/Saturation: Colorized, Hue 40, Saturation 27, Lightness -21.
Layer 7: Levels modified a little to make face area blend with rest of photo.
And, that is how it was done.
If you haven't been to Kim Klassen's site before, you really need to visit with her. She is a remarkable woman. She also has some very interesting and enjoyable and informative classes to offer.
I enjoyed this Texture Tuesday Challenge very much and am looking forward to next week's.
Until next time, enjoy your photography and scrapbooking and have fun with Photoshop.
