ASSIGNMENT 101 William Marriott

After gathering inspiration from my cat slumbering next to my wife's computers I uploaded the original to PS.

I liked the shot but it was to washed out from the evening sun, I created a copy layer and started tweaking Channel, Curve, and Level mixers.

Back and forth between mixers and dodge and burn, I highlighted the areas I wanted as focal points and removed and harshness the sunlight was washing out.

  1. I love how you brought the image to life. Definitely agree with you when you say the original was a bit washed out, but I especially like how the red and greens seemed to pop a bit more. I can see you brightened up certain areas of your cat too, such as its paws, and love the contrast between that and the darkened blanket.
