Slider Sunday

The final image...

Henry and the Therm-A-Rest

... the creation of which is described below, followed by a few intermediate images, and then some Solo Shots of the Therm-A-Rest (just because.)

Dog Blog Post #1875

Henry, trying out Hubby's Backpacking Therm-A-Rest Z-Lite sleeping pad.

I don't think this is what Hubby usually takes, which is probably why he didn't fuss when I asked to borrow it for tonight's shoot.

Folded up like this, it turned out to be a very Precarious Perch for the Puppy - not at all stable under Paw.

I took just two shots, reseting the pad each time and holding it down until the last possible moment for each shot.

Daily Dog Challenge 1384. "Where I Stand"

Our Daily Challenge - Aug 15, 2015 - "Ruffles or Ridges"

I first applied the Neon Glow filter in Photoshop Elements to create the bottom layer. I then used the Linear Light blending mode on a copy of the original image as the upper layer.

Back in Lightroom I pushed a few sliders bring out the fur and reflection a bit more.


Just Neon Glow

Neon Glow

This used two separate applications of Neon Glow on otherwise identical layers of the same original image.

For the bottom layer, I focused on bringing out the ridges in the pad. For the top layer, i tried to bring out the fur. I then used the Lighten blending mode to mix the layers together.

Zachary - Looking left out

While Zachary does know the Paws Up cue, his quick movements and dislike of unstable footing would have made this a tough shot.

As I liked what I got from Henry, I let Zachary off the hook tonight.
