For DP Challenge, the advanced editing challenge for this week is "Games". Instantly this sort of image came to mind. Yes that is me geared up. I was thinking more of that feeling of loss after a game 7 (like Calgary recently underwent) but as I shot it lost that sense of melancholy.
Editing on this was nuts (at least more editing than I typically do)
- Duplicated layer (X 2)
- On layer marked "Clarify" Channel mixer (100% red)
- Clarify (20) Cloned out artifacts created by this
- Other layer mixed as "hard light" (100% opacity)Set opacity for clarify to 43Flattened
- Export to JPG
I guess it turned out pretty well all things considered. I wish my gloves were the Oilers colors so that they would match. I also wish I turned the blade of my stick so that it was more visible. I also wish I could control where the shadow from the visor fell. In some shots it looked like a really nasty scar.
