Behind the scenes & Watch me edit Calla Lily

 

Today, I want to take you behind the scenes and talk about my set up and then we’ll edit this calla lily into a beautifully painted portrait of a flower using the Seasons Presets and texture from the Painted collection.

I am using a simple set up by a window for today’s set. I’ll be shooting into my favorite vintage crate to create some moody darkness behind the flower. I love shooting into the crate to manipulate the amount of light on my subject. I’ll be using a black card to further manipulate the light.

I hope you love seeing my set and finished photo! 🙂

    I chuckled at first when you took your first deep breath in, while editing, and then found myself doing that, too! So-o-o beautiful! I hope you print and frame that gorgeous piece of art! L-o-v-e i-t!!!

    Thank you very much for the behind the scenes Calla processing. The complimentary colors of that calla and the texture colors work beautifully together.
    Thanks for inspiring and teaching us through your videos.
