Beyond Layers Homework


My good friend Betty, purchased Kim Klassen's class, Beyond Layers, for me. I am thrilled and delighted to be in this year long course on learning how to better my photography.



 For the Coreopsis in the bottle, I used KK Evolve, with Vivid Light at 40%, then brushed texture off the flowers and bottle. Next layer, Evolve 2, Soft Light at 48% and brushed over the flowers and bottle.




 On the photo above, I used KK canvas love. Can't remember the blending mode. Will write it down next time. Then I used her Paper 4, set the blending mode to Soft Light at 24% opacity. Next layer, I added Paper 3, Soft Light at 48% opacity. On all three layers, I brushed off the textures at 86% opacity.



For this foxglove photo I started with KK texture, Awaken, blending mode was Screen at 35% opacity. Then brushed the petals with a soft black brush to remove the texture, 86% opacity. Next layer, I ran Awaken again, this time with Soft Light at 48% and brushed the texture off the flower. Last, I used KK Summer love in Overlay mode at 45% brushing off the flower again. Ended with a Coffee Shop vignette action.

May the peace, happiness and love of Jesus be with you today and always!

Beautiful images. I do not know how to do those things, but can do some simple ones now in picmonkey.com. I will have to learn some more techniques later.

Beautiful simplicity.

You've got just the right touch. Does this take very long? I'd love to learn all of this someday!
