COLORFUL MOSAIC GLASSWARE
Mosaic glassware is beautiful with light shining upon it....however......it pretty well has to be empty in order to get the best advantage of light bouncing off of it. I have photograph the above vase many times, but most of the time I have flowers in it.
Anyway, back to the photo. The background I used for this image is the same I used for the image I posted on August 18.
For the flowers I used a couple of roses which were past their prime and placed them in front of the vase.
After I photographed the image and got it into the computer I placed a textured image I had created and placed it as a layer upon the image I had just photographed. Because I only wanted the final result to look a little like a painting, I adjusted the opacity of the textured layer so that only a bit of it was showing up on the original photograph.
Challenge for today:
Remember you can still photograph flowers which are past their prime. Try it.
