Today’s blog post is short but sweet. I wanted to share with you my new Facebook group “Sullivan J Photography”. I started this group so people can see the behind the scenes of our work and what it takes to create the images so many people ask about. I think it’s fun to see the before and after of shots and also the software and equipment used to make the image exactly what you want it to be. If you’re interested please join us and share your fun too!
I wanted most of the water drops in focus in the foreground and background so I had to stack the image. These are backlit dandelion seeds. I’m drawn to water and seeds, the essence of life. This was shot on Black Plexi glass and lit with red gels on my lights. I processed this in Lightroom, Photoshop, Topaz & On1. I plan to add the before and after image to our new Facebook group and I’ll add more info about the process there.
I also started a Sullivan J Photography page on Instagram. There has been so much controversy about how Instagram can use our images to sell to third parties so I’ve been very reluctant to join. However, the Arcanum started an account and asked us Masters to join in and being the person I am, I want to support what we do at the Arcanum. 🙂 I would love to see you there too.
