Painterly Effect

Posted by akessonphotography on 1, September 24, 2007

Been working on adding to photographs an effect that takes the background and presenting a look of a soft watercolour behind the main subject. Not sure how easy it will be to see the effect online in the blog but I’ll give it a go. Let me tell you, though, that when it’s viewed full screen in the original Adobe RGB it looks quite spectacular and I thing printed on canvas it will be fabulous.

The pic is my pick of all the photos I took of my sister Shirley and her hubby Dennis.  And yes they had lovely smiles in the other ones I took but for what I wanted this is the one.

Shirley ‘n Dennis

Must admit, as I look at it now, I’ll have to do the effect  somewhat stronger if I am to put it up on the blog.  The large [and higher resolution] versions show it the impact of the effect much more pronounced.
