A Creative Fix In Macro Photography For When Your Doors Are Closed!

Nothing like taking one of your “blah” shots, and making something appealing out of it!
I was trying some things out in the field last week, trying to get something a bit different because of the absolutely wonderful late evening light. This is one of those where I thought that the original image would probably wind up in the trash. Initially, I just could not get the overall feel for composition in this area I was shooting. Then, thinking ahead, I thought about what a combination of the same image using Photoshop might look like.
For the final piece that you see here and with the camera on a tripod, I took one shot for my original.
Then, I took another shot with some adjustments made for shutter speed, and slightly moving the camera during that exposure for a blurred look.
In the system, and using Studio Artist 3.0, I painted over the original using various brushes and a oil base, then saved that one for my third image.
Then, I combined all of the images together in Photoshop.
In some instances, you do not necessarily need Photoshop, as the combining of images can be achieved in other programs as well. Just check your “Help” file or users manual to see what you can do along these lines.
Fun, fairly easy to do, and it most certainly can open the doors for you in your creativity when all else seems to be at a standstill!
Thanks for looking gang!
