Wave Lilies


Lightdance, May 20, 2011

I’m still going through the flower photos I took at Longwood Gardens. I had some fun creating a new background for the lilies using Photoshop’s Wave Distort Filter, then collaging the flowers and new background into one image.


Poinsettia Bouquet

I haven’t done any flowers using the Wave Distort Filter on the background in a long time. The poinsettia is still pretty, but I’ll preserve it in a photo using the wave distort technique before it fades away to be replaced by tulips and daffodils.  I might be rushing spring a little.

Curling Leaves

The leaves are real, taken at Radnor Lake, but the rest of this image is manufactured. The leaf image was duplicated in order to make the distorted background, then I used OnOne Photoframe to make a frame, and while I was in Photoframe I discovered this little section of textures that could be applied to the whole image, so I added that just to see what would happen.

Ooops. I see I forgot to bring the bottom of the leaf stem back through the distortion layer. I’ll have to fix that later.

Now, I must put this photographic stuff away, and start shopping and cooking! There is so  much to be thankful for!

I haven’t posted a flower with a PS Wave Distort background in several weeks, but I still like working on them.

A common sight in Tennessee gardens and fields in late summer and fall, this brown eyed susan was photographed at Radnor Lake.  Photoshop Wave Distort filter was applied to a duplicated flower to use as the background.

Petunias and Wave Distort

A combination of three layers: the flowers, the leaf blades and the flowers duplicated with the Wave Distort filter applied to make the background.

I have been using the Photoshop Wave Distort Filter to alter a duplicate of an image, then bring portions of the original through the duplicate using a layer mask. There are many other filters in addition to the Wave Distort . I just can’t seem to move on to one of them.

I should devote some time to replacing the carpet we lost during the May 2-3 flood. Was that really four and a half months ago? I have picked out some new carpet. The name of it is Raindance, which qualifies it in my book as a kind of sick joke. No one in Nashville is doing any dance beseeching the gods for more rain!

Maybe flood trauma is causing my obsession with the Wave Distort filter? I’ll just look at it as therapy treatment!
