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.
