Day 101

17th December 2010

This weeks happy monday theme is Christmas decorations.

This is my first attempt at selective black and white and I have to say I’m quiet pleased with the result. I decided to try this effect because I didn’t like the colours in the straight out of camera shot and being very new to photoshop I have no idea how to improve my photo. In this situation I usually convert to black and white but it seemed a shame to lose the colours of the christmas baubles. After a bit of playing around with photoshop elements 9, I found a tool that creates this effect. Try as I might though I couldn’t quiet get the edges sharp with this tool. After a google search I found a tutorial on convert images to selective black and white using layers and layer masks. I’m much happier with the results and cant wait to play around with more photos.
