Thursday

as the lavender catches fire


i had some fun yesterday playing around with photoshop, something i love but hadn't done in a very long time. i created both these images from original portrait photos, finding extra sky and trees from other photos taken on the day and stitching them together. there's something slightly unusual about a photo tied together at the edges rather than simply cropping it to a square. hopefully i'll be doing a few more of these over the next few months!

i also recorded while i was editing the top picture. the original video is an hour and a half long, so i've shortened it for you to see:


also, these are the photos i took for the wonderful oh deer boutique, so it's a little sneak peek of what there is to come soon! 

model: ellie
makeup: abbey love

    1. ahh thank you so much! i'm happy you noticed, i'm definitely trying to push myself to go in a slightly different direction - i mainly just want to create manipulations more often, starting small until i can do something more dream like and other-worldly!

    1. it is real! those little flecks of light were fruit flies flying around on the day catching the light. there were so many of them in real life, but for some reason they just weren't capturing right in the camera, so i thought i'd make one photo where i'd put a bunch of them together :) but the blurry background was done in camera, and the orange light leak i added is the first time i've done that to a photo in months! :)
