This week I pondered "wood." Should I do a pet in the woods? A pet on something wooden? Hmmmm...
I decided to use this week to learn something new. So I made this.
I used two separate YouTube videos to learn how to make this. The first is here. The second is here. I used what I could from each, because my version of Photoshop Elements is a bit different than what is discussed in the video, but I got the general idea from each video and then used the parts that worked for me to make this background.
To challenge myself even more, I decided to take an existing photo that I had previously left unedited, and pull the subject from it and place him/her on the background. This is where things got real.
This is not the type of image I would do for a regular pet portrait client. This is a client dog, and one you have seen already in another blog post. I felt he had the best coat color to use with the background I created. This image would be good for commercial use. So with that thought, I created this as my final rework of the image.
Check out the rest of the blog circle by starting with Danyel of Wag To My Heart serving the Portland Metro area, OR. Enjoy the rest of your Friday, and have a wonderful weekend! As my grandfather used to say: "Don't take any wooden nickels."
