Even when the wind is hardly blowing I can hardly keep my camera still when crouching down. I knew the photos weren’t going to be perfect, but once I uploaded them I saw they were pretty awful. I knew I needed a tripod to steady myself, as well as adjusting my Aperture.
See the difference?
The lighting was certainly different, but I also changed my Aperture to 2.8. Not shooting the flower from above also allowed for a little more depth and visual appeal.
Whew. So now that I have a much better photo to work with I’m ready to edit.
Right away I knew I wanted to use some of Love That Shots Photo Veils.
Once uploaded into Photoshop I found the three I was looking for, overlayed each veil/spotlight, adjusted the opacity and in less than a few minutes had my photo complete:
Here are the details of what I used to achieve this look:
Bells of Ireland (Botanical Veils Collection) – Blending Mode: Softlight – Opacity: 100%
Green Spotlight Left (Illumination Veils Collection) – Blending Mode: Overlay – Opacity: 100%
Warm Spotlight (Illumination Veils Collection) – Blending Mode: Softlight – Opacity: 75%
If you love taking photos of nature and flowers Love that Shot has tons of great Veils that suit this genre of photography! I will forever love their Spotlight Collection and use it often when I edit, regardless if it’s a photo of my girls, still life, or action. It is truly a great set to keep in your editing arsenal! Check out their site for lots of great photography and editing information.
