About Light's Destiny

I love photography and I love talking about it and learning about it even more. My pictures have been sitting in a virtual box forever. It is time to get them out and talk about them. I hope you like what you see and please comment if you have something to add.

Grandpap Nap

Saturday, June 11th, 2011

Grandpa catching an afternoon nap.

I caught grandpa sneaking a nap as we sat under a tree in the backyard enjoying the Southern California weather in Riverside. I have been fussing with this image for a long time and the exact details of the process are mostly forgotten. I can remember that I used a gradient overlay B&W conversion process (hopefully I will remember to go into detail on that process soon) and a few other techniques to attempt to boost the contrast and detail in the hat skin and clothing. Most recently I used a layer mask and added some lens blur to further obscure the background. I’m undecided on whether or not to crop the photo and in which direction… I’ll play around with it some time.
