So on Saturday I posted my SOOC shots of my frosty flowers! Ashley posted the tutorial today! Not so much a tutorial- she posted an action to use!!! Its a great, simple action- I love simple!!! Go to her website and check it out! I edited most of my photos that I posted with the action, the sillouettes of flowers the action didn't do anything for......so I ran a couple different actions for those. The one above is my favorite!
We than got to take them into Pixel Bender a plug-in from Adobe. I had heard about it a while ago from a pod cast and downloaded it I was so excited because what I had seen them do was amazing!!! Very much like Ashley's. However, I only have CS4 and it isn't as good as CS5's version of pixel bender!!! No oil paint on CS4......... :-( So I made do, not loving it and really not spending a bunch of time messing with it knowing it won't do what I want it to. My photos don't lend itself very well to pixel bender......however I will post some that will later!!! You really have to open them in a different window to see what I did to them.
I was very happy with all of my flower shots. They turned out very different!!! So of them I just stopped at Ashley's actions, others I ran some MCP telescope from All in the Details and Coffeeshop Hot Toffee. Here are the rest, some are the same SOOC shot just cropped different.
