From suburbia to the open road.
Every once in a while I like to post a sort of “making of” series of shots from one of my painterly photo-blend works. This time I’ve chosen “The Wind In My Hair”. On a visit to a local town I spotted this chap in a sports car pulling out of a parking bay and thought it would make an interesting shot so I hurriedly raised my camera and took a few shots.
Fabulous car!, dreary background!, so the first thing that I wanted to do was loose suburbia (oh if life was ever that straightforward!) 🙂
Then I started thinking of what backdrop I could use, I wanted a countryside background and remembered a very unremarkable shot that I’d taken a few weeks earlier at a different location so I added some motion blur to it:
Then I put it all together:
Added some radial blur on the car wheels and painterly effects and texture and some final black magic “tweaking” 🙂 and this is the end work, “The Wind In My Hair”
I hope that the owner would have liked it.
