Rose Postcard

Posted on July 27, 2012 by Leslie Nicole | 3 Comments


My husband bought me a bouquet of vibrant coral pink roses last week. (Thanks, Sweetie!) I arranged them in this bowl with thoughts of photographing them. Something just wasn't working though so I didn't end up photographing them. Today as I walked by them I thought Darn, I didn't photograph those roses in time, they are starting to wilt. Then, I paused and realized that they actually looked great now. The color had mellowed just a little bit and the wilting roses at the bottom added an interesting depth and change in the composition.

I photographed them with a simple white background. I then used the Clarity setting in the Topaz Labs Adjust filter.

Finally, I added textures, an overlay and a Photoshp brush stamp.

Textures

Crème Fraîche from the Tableaux Collection 

  • Blend Mode: Multiply (I used a levels adjustment to increase the contrast.)
  • Opacity: 80%

Bon Bon from the Tableaux Collection

  • Blend Mode: Multiply (I used a levels adjustment to increase the contrast.)
  • Opacity: 100%
  • I mostly masked this texture except the edges which gives the coral colored border.

Overlay: Tour Eiffel Postcard
