TAKE A WORD - MASCULINE
This week Marie has chosen MASCULINE as our word for inspiration and usually at this point I get a little twinkle in my eye and create something quirky. This week, however, I was in a different kind of mood entirely and wanted to just play in Photoshop.
So starting with a greyscale image of John Lennon I found on the web, I extracted him from the background, increased the brightness by around 50% to remove detail and to increase the light within his face, added contrast by around 10% for clarity before experimenting in colour variations until I created this lovely purple blue. Finally, I added a sharpen edges filter to lift and highlight and accentuate his bone structure and his signature round rimmed glasses. Ta daa!
Thank you for looking.
