Abandoned #2

    Newer Older

    A rusty old tanker trailer along-side the A64 on the outskirts of seacroft, leeds, UK.

    Taken with an Infra Red filter.

    It was my birthday the other week, so i invested in a Wacom graphics tablet & pen - this is the first photo i've really got to grips with it with.

    To make the tanker stand out more i had 2 separate curve adjustments and layer masks - one dark and one light (the light one being to dodge-in the extra details in back-end of the trailer).

    The wacom's great - so easy to dodge and burn with as the pen "nib" is pressure sensitive - the harder you press the more pronounced and bigger diameter of the effect, plus you can be a lot more accurate drawing free-hand than with a mouse.

      Oh this is excellent, i'm loving the texture on the abandoned tanker, and the infrared has given it a true other-worldy feel. Love it, well done.
