Before/After: Twirls

Jim Nix posted a video on photo twirls, and I was bored enough to try it. 🙂 No work right now, and I need a break from reading and TV, so I tried it.

Took this pic of a snapping turtle at the local park. I was twenty or thirty feet away from him. Telephoto lenses rock! 

Then I turned him into a twirl in Photoshop, with additional color adjustments in Luminar. Pretty, isn’t it?

Did the same thing with this cardinal.

I recently processed a photo I took when I lived in St. Paul. It was nice remembering that city. Funny thing is, I grew up in Minneapolis, then moved to Wisconsin for decades before returning and moving into St. Paul, a city I was totally unfamiliar with. Didn’t take me long to realize it was a wonderful place with lots to recommend it. Being on the Mississippi didn’t hurt. Rivertowns always resonate with me.

I turned it into this.

If you want to find out how to do twirls in Photoshop, check out Jim Nix on YouTube.

See you next time.
