Same Photo.....2 different presets

Happy TT.

Today's an exciting day...another Be Still Connect... I'm super excited about it.... I hope to see many of you there!!

Guys... I have so much to share...but not quite yet....I must wait just a little longer.....My head is ready to burst.... 

In the meantime.... a quick little diddy on today's photos.....

Before I talk processing.... I'm loving my Rough Linen tea towel ....and pinafore all over again these days... It's possibly the loveliest piece of textile... EVER.... Must place an order for more... soon.... I can't recommend Rough Linen enough.... I really, really need some rough linen curtains as well!! 

Back to my processing.....

Okay...so each image is textured with KK-Quiet...... The download went out last week, or was it the week before? Anyhow... it was the perfect light touch for today's photos.....all at soft light blend mode.....

The top diptych was made in LR...then into Photoshop for texture and type.. 31 Day-ers....  You may have seen the tutorial for this layout by now...So fun.

I love the Lightroom print module.... I whipped up my 4-square in the print module as well... Super quick....

Anyhow... I noted the presets in each square..... Depending on which classes you are in.... you might have most of these presets already.

::

 One more hydrangea... Yes, they are still hanging on...... processed with my kk-quietdreams presets then into PS for a layer of quiet texture at soft light 62%.... I added a hue/sat adjustment layer and clipped it to the texture to reduce the overall texture saturation and masked some of it off the highlights of the rose.....

Today's freebie texture..... everyday...

Happy TT.

Oh my... I just got off the loveliest connect with the Be Still group!! So good to chat with such an amazing group....of genuine creatives..... 

Thank you all so much! My oh my.....I needed that.

::

I'm afraid my post is going to be short and sweet.... and I will definitely be back here with more photos of these beautiful hydrangeas I found at Safeway!! Oh my gosh... sooo pretty......

They came in 3's....but because my day was cut short.... I only had time for a few quick photos....and for some reason...it seems a single flower is almost always right...

I thought I'd share a few different process versions... using presets that are part of my 31 Days class....Honestly... I love all 3 looks...... But you can't go too wrong with hydrangeas....  so much to love.

With that said... the thing I may love most about this photo ..... the way the letters on the linen peek through the glass bottle.....  

'happy sigh'.......

Today's Uptop Recipe

Toned and cropped in LR.... then I applied my new preset, Lightly 2. (part of the 31 days class content)

Next Photoshop for a touch of texture.....One layer of achieve at soft light, 100% opacity.... then a hue/sat adjustment layer, clipped to the texture to remove a little yellow.... and that was that....

Hello lovelies... How are you? I hope this post finds you well. I have a message for you.... today. It's short and sweet......

Something good is about to happen......

Sit with this thought... imagine it... believe it..... take it with you today......

Today's Recipe

Toned and cropped in LR.... then I applied my new preset, Quiet Dream.....
It may possibly be a new preset for a certain class I'm running.... just sayin..... 

Into Photoshop for a touch of texture.....both at multiply 40% opacity. I also added a hue/sat adjustment layer and clipped it to the texture to reduce the yellow.

The top image is textured with last week's achieve and the second is textured with today's freebie, quiet.....using the same recipe for both.....

Hello lovelies. Happy TT.

Today's Cherry Recipe

Lightroom

Toned...then applied my Dark Mood preset with a slight bump in saturation (Be Still students this preset is available for download in the Week 6 lesson). 

Into Photoshop

I added a layer of waterfront 7 at softlight 78% opacity... In the top image I masked the texture off everything but the cherries. I love how the texture brought out the detail in the cherries.
