Taking a break for the Maui photos for a few hours, I wanted to try out a few of the Photoshop techniques that I learned at the Maui Photo Festival a few weeks back.
This shot is from the photos I took from the Hawks / Sharks matchup back in March. After seeing photos used in promotional materials with the Hawks’ awesome red home jerseys highlighted against grey-toned backdrops, I wanted to give it a shot myself. So that’s what I was playing around with a for a few hours last night.
In this shot, I also highlighted the goaltender and added a blur effect to everything else in the frame. Here’s the original shot.
This particular photo was one I spent the most time on, and here are the two others that I did a little practice on first.
And now, back to all those Maui photos I need to go through.
