Monday has rolled around already. I didn’t even get a chance to do Flashback Friday and a new week is here. So, here is Week 3 of the One Four Challenge. Do you remember those old 3D photos you used to see that needed glasses to see them properly. They always made my Mum feel a bit queasy as she felt they were moving but I loved them.
That was the feel I was after with today’s photo. Of course, it’s not 3D but I wanted to recreate a similar feel. I remember always trying to see them without glasses and loving the slightly bizarre distortion. Hopefully, I’ve hit the mark a little bit. This is something I’d like to play a bit more with. To see the actual effect, you’ll have to click on it to make it larger.
So to do this, I started with the same photo cropped and straightened. In Lightroom I took contrast down a fraction and upped the shadows and clarity, then took it into Photoshop. In PS, I played a bit with colour then added a radial filter and a zoom filter, then a slight gaussian blur. Back into Lightroom, I took the highlights, whites and vibrance down and added a grunge type vignette.
