Here is a look I have been perfecting for some time now. Thanks to Glyn Dewis I have been able to perfect it to a point where I’m satisfied.
It is not meant to be a photo but rather more of an illustrative look. Once this look is achieved the element can be moved and adapted easily into another background for a more dramatic effect. Many times I have a vision of how I want to construct a composite but would become frustrated because I could not get the main element to have a “look & feel” that I needed to coincide with the background. In the photo above there is a blurry background, I will drop that and we’ll see Beirt put into a much more dramatic environment.
