Evening Edit.

IMG_6701 IMG_6701-3¬†You can sort of make daylight photos look like evening shots in Lightroom. The shadows won’t quite match because the sun isn’t actually low but it will at least fool some people and seem like avery warm day to others (movie-like sun, Arizona or something). Use the temperature control sparingly, go to the bottom of the menu and turn the image calibration tone to the pink side to taste. You might have to bring out the blues in the HLS section. Reduce the shadows and bring back some blacks, add some contrast and get rid of any residual bird poo.

Cataract.

IMG_4207The washed out and colour-cast edges are done by wrapping a clear sandwich bag with a hole in the middle, around the lens which I coloured with a blue highlighter on the left and a red one on the right. The hole lets the cat’s head/eye stay sharp and in focus while the surroundings look misty and dreamy.
