Shoot and Edit: Bubbles edit

June 17, 2011 Sarah Coggins

I finally have a completed edit for last week’s Shoot and Edit photo. I started on it last week and became frustrated so I shoved it aside. After a clean edit, I wasn’t seeing a great deal of change so I decide to experiment for the fun of it. I played around with layers and masks – but was fighting with Photoshop through it all. Just not getting what I wanted. Midway through this week, I realized I had a setting wrong! Somehow I had the brush opacity set low which was causing my frustrations. I don’t know how or why it was changed from 100%. Once I figured that out, I went to try again.

  • Ran Ashley’s Nice & Easy action. Adjusted layers to suit.
  • Merged all layers.
  • Ran Bitchin B&W action by Totally Rad. Used layer mask to remove wand & bubbles. Then lowered the layer’s opacity so the background was muted, but no longer black & white.
  • New adjustment layer – Hue/Saturation. Increased both. Left lightness untouched.
  • Cropped image.
