I had the urge to play in Photoshop this morning. The new upgrade is providing some nice surprises. A friend of mine has a face hanging on one of his trees. I snapped a shot and started experimenting. I knew what I wanted to do, I just wasn’t sure how to do it.
The thing about PS is, the more you try things, the more you learn. Also: there is always more than one way to accomplish your goal. For this one, I used several layers set to different blending options, masking, the color desaturation tool (the face started out blue and I left a little for effect), and a couple different filters. I wanted it to look like the face was struggling to get free of its tree. Did I succeed?
