Drawn Into Another World

118:365 April 28


My inspiration. This guy is one of the best lighting guys I've seen. I love his humor, his subjects and his processing style, so today, with a little inspiration, I've tried to go a little deeper into my post processing workflow and try some new techniques, some of which, I have no precedent for, nor tutorial to follow-it's straight out of my own mind.


The title has a bit of a triple entendre. It alludes to the world of a book, the world of post processing, and the somewhat surrealistic look created by the processing.


The book, by the way, is The Hobbit, and no, I'm not really reading it, at the moment.
