High Key Layer Stack

High Key Layer Stack – Nikon D810, 24-70mm, 6 image stack

Experimenting with a technique I saw used by Harold Davis, painting in transparency using a high key layer stack in Photoshop. Images (6 bracketed images) shot on a LED light box then stacked in Photoshop and painted in…click to view a little larger.

Lots to learn here, stay tuned for more as I have some fun…

I was driving over to a friends house in Gettysburg the other day for dinner out and passed by this scene. I have noticed this field and small water feature many times before and always wanted to stop and take a few images. Today the light was special, it was raining lightly and there was a certain glow to the scene. So I found a place to pull off, always the biggest problem and grabbed a few images, jumped back into the car and proceeded to my friends. All without getting run over on a very narrow bridge. A little added texture and some mirroring in Photoshop using luminosity masks (Lumenzia, Highly Recommended).
