Another awesome week with beautiful weather has started today. With this sort of weather I can hardly stay inside. Right now, while I am writing this post, I am sitting on the balcony with my laptop enjoying the late afternoon sun before Christian gets home.
This afternoon, I went to my tree again and as it would be too boring to post the same pictures again and a again (there is not a lot of change there lately…), I decided to practice my Photoshop skills a little bit and create a sort of mixed black/white and color picture. Here comes the result:
It is fairly easy to highlight certain parts of a black and white pictures. Here is how you do it:
- Use a normal color picture and open it with Photoshop.
- Duplicate the background layer and change the color of the top layer to black and white.
- Use the rubber tool to erase the parts you want to highlight on the top layer. This way, the colored lower layer shines through.
See how easy it is? I love pictures like that. I have already done some shoots in London with the typical telephone booth and red bus etc… I am going to share those with you at some point.
Have you ever done any mixing of b/w and color? What sort of pictures did you use for that and what did you highlight?
I wish you all a fantastic new week keeping my thumbs up that the weather stays as great as it is right now!
