Fairy Tales RAW screen shot


Last year, after starting my new photography style, I thought I’d try it on a cactus flower that had opened up on one of our cacti. There was some sunlight making its way between the branches and leaves of the neighbors tree; not only did it add some beautiful bokeh, used for this in camera multiple exposure, but the photo wouldn’t be nearly as interesting without it.

I had so much fun post processing this in Lightroom! After doing the regular “Tone” settings, I lowered the clarity (instead of raising it) and saw a soft glow that I really liked. Next I did some dodging and burning with colors for the flower and some of the background green, and without color for the edges of the “bubbles”.

Scroll all the way to the bottom to see a screen shot of the RAW file.
