Dreaming: Achieving image variations with filters & blends

Discussion in 'Retouching and Post Processing' started by beaucamera, Dec 12, 2005.

  1. This is a continuation of my previous thread, "The Nightmare".

    Here I've used the same montage and applied a series of filters and blends. The filters I used were from Nik Multimedia Color Pro 2 series . I combined them with different blending modes (and percentages) in PS. I wanted to show you how you could vary the mood and expression of an image with these techniques. You could apply the same methodology to any image and combine them with other PS techniques.

    aka beaucamera

    P.S. If you don't have the nik filters, try using layers with different curves and blending modes/percentages instead.

    Original Montage:

    Nik: monday morning filter, luminosity blend

    A combination of Nik monday morning (luminosity blend above) and midnight filters, normal blend

    Nik: midnight filter, normal blend

    Nik: weird dreams filter, luminiosity blend
