NIKON D300, NIKON 105 VR, Photoshop – Fractalius
Here is a picture I took at the Bellagio Hotel 2 weeks ago. You may ask how it was done? Easy! Fractalius. Its a plug in for many of the post processing software used for photographs. I use Photoshop CS3. Plug ins are filter additions to your current software. You can purchase them and add them into your workflow. I saw this plug in one day on a friends web site…I was amazed! I wanted to get it! You can also… www.redfieldplugins.com is the website. $39.90 for the program. Easy download and install.
I’ve tried it on many photographs….seems as though flowers and animals are the best! Here is a bird you can see for reference on my web site… http://talkephotography.com/p163430339/h23016323#h23016323 Its very cool! A dream shot for me one day would be to get a closeup of an american eagle…then use Fractalius.
As for this shot….you can play around with the settings on Fractalius and get many different versions/styles. I loved the composition of this shot. The flower all by itself, and the deep green background (looks like green flames) creates a wonderful color flow! With this software you can have lots of fun. Hope you enjoy!
