  • My Family and Other Animals by lilley

    Thanks Harriet. It was one of the first books I read at High School, I really enjoyed reading it and it has always stuck in my memory. I seem to remember how he matched animals to his family members?

    My son has always had a real empathy with his pets, who love him as much as he does them.

    Forgive me, I never said what I did:

    I used Photoshop elements...

    1) Go into levels, and draw the left slider to the right to just touch the bar graph to darken the image a little.
    2) Do the same for the right slider, which will appear to lighten the image again.
    3) Go in to shadow and highlight and reduce your highlights and midtones a little. This with serve to deepen your image.
    4) Pick the sponge tool and increase the saturation one click.
    5) pick the sharpen the tool, and sharpen just a little, I used 20. Don't use auto, play around yourself, so that the image appears clearer without looking artificial.

    The above will improve the image. If you want to draw the eye in, look to what you want the eye to be focused on, and lighten and darken the surroundings accordingly in order to achieve this. Elements is quite good at letting you select what you are going to play with, I picked the dark brown around the central arch to darken leaving the white arch brighter, the same with the side arches.

    I did not want the white side arches to be "in your face", so a touch of lightening and sharpening, to kind of create an arch to start the eye moving forward without stopping.

    I am sure that the correct way would be to create layers so that you can un-do any of the above modifications, but I just like to play around.

    Have fun with your photography, keep posting, keep smiling.
