The photo on the right is the original, on the left is the photo that I manipulated the color and contrast. My daughter taught me how to create the effect on the top photo.

    Isn’t it funny, how our kids teach us now?

    I don’t have any kids ;O) – can you give some clues? It looks fantastic………..

  3. it involved working in layers with several images and selecting multiply. that is about the best I can explain. I had my daughter show me a few times before I really understood what she was doing.

    Thanks Judy, I shall have a go – and perhaps consult the manual!?

  5. Judy did you notice there is a ‘face’ in the moths body? I thought you might have added that, but I see it in all three. It looks like a double exposure of you turning….

  6. No special effect there. I did not see a face, I guess it is just the moths natural patterning.

    Now I understand how you did this. Oh fun! I will have to play with layers! A friend posted a photo of the same type moth on flickr and we were trying to figure out what kind it is. I love the double coloring.

I love hearing from my blog visitors
