Terns and Seagulls at Drakes Beach in Pt. Reyes National Seashore. It's September and I believe some, if not all, are getting ready to migrate. Probably not happy I disturbed them! More photos from Drakes Beach and nearby Mt. Vision up soon @Shutterstock here: https://www.shutterstock.com/g/Lucy+Autrey+Wilson
I'm newly enamored with the 3D feature in Photoshop CC. Hence this 3D bird with cast shadow rendering of a previously created fabric wool punched and embroidered bird, which I then added to a photo of a bucket taken in Mendocino, already combined with another picture of the algae in Abbotts Lagoon. Digital manipulation provides hours and hours of fun! Especially since 3D rendering seems to take 1 1/2 hours at minimum.
This took all day! First drawing my wooden models, then painting them, then trying to figure out 3D in Photoshop so I could create real looking shadows. I need a longer 3D lesson. So much I don't know.
Trying something different compositing art with photos both in camera and digitally in Photoshop. Top image was done in camera in multiple exposure mode - shooting the original art and a copy of the photo printed in the same size as the original painting, then edited in Lightroom and Photoshop. 2nd from top is a digital blending of the two bottom pieces with minimal editing in Photoshop.
