This week is a standard After Before photo challenge from Stacy at Visual Venturing. I reached back into my bag of old photos to find one that I really wanted to do some crazy fun things to this week. Here’s the final result:
So, are you wondering what the original looked like? Here it is:
I love this image, and I’ve posted a black and white version of it here. When I opened the image in PhotoShop, I used these settings on the RAW converter:
These resulted in an image with heightened sharpness, colors, and contrast.
Next, I created a duplicate layer and selected the Polar Coordinates filter at 100%.
I love how the Steinway & Sons wrapped. Finally, I added a softening gradient fill layer using using the following settings:
- Gradient: transparent to white
- Style: Radial
- Angle: 170.54
- Scale: 100%
- Reverse and Align with layer selected
