Bitter Grounds - espresso fueled ramblings

Friday, April 28, 2017

Trying some new techniques out. I've been mucking about with different styles, including different brush stokes. This worked out better than I had hoped:

 Motion Project - Waiting for Subway in Toronto

Waiting for the subway at Union - Nov 2 2016

It's a muck about of a photo I took a couple months ago but couldn't figure out what I wanted to do with it. The actual photo isn't much to look at, but the motion caught my eye and I kept it, in hopes I could salvage something intriguing from it. I tried at least 7 variations until this morning when I got a bit frisky with the brush tool. It's a hybrid - a brush outline, a bit of hand shadowing and a little cutout effect with some HDR thrown into the mix. I might mess about a bit more, but not sure.  I have a slightly different brush style I'm testing out, so if it works, I'll post it. If it does't .. you'll never know.
