Hello lovelies. Happy TT.

Today's Peony Recipe

In Camera

Image captured with the Nikon d4 using the Sigma 50mm ART lens

ISO 200, Exposure 1/250 at f/6.3 Manual Mode with spot Metering.


Toned...then I applied my Dark Mood preset with a boost in saturation (Be Still students this preset is available for download in the Week 6 lesson). 

Into Photoshop

I added a layer of kk_0405 at multiply 73% opacity. I masked the texture off the linen. I added a hue/saturation adjustment layer and clipped it to the texture layer. I lowered the saturation to -47. (Clipping the adjustment to the texture applies the hue/sat settings to the texture layer only)

In case you missed the 0405 texture, it was part of the May set. click HERE to download it.

I would love to find a peony that is the new color you've created here. It's such a lovely scene!

I asked before but didn't get a reply. Is there somewhere I can purchase the Dark Mood preset? Do you have any presets for sale?
