This is a photo/graphic design piece that I just created for a client. It started out as a single image of a white lily. She wanted something flowing and in pink tones. I turned the original lily into a layer, duplicated the layer, and chose different hues. I then created the background using the same lily, but in black and white. Then I created a layer mask and made a pink gradient, flattened the image, and voila! The finished image measures 8′ x 4′.
Okay, so if you haven’t seen Cast Away with Tom Hanks then this photo won’t make any sense at all (and I’ll post a different one later), but whether you’re trapped on a deserted island, or not, everyone could use a friend like Wilson.
I actually did find this volleyball on a ‘deserted’ beach – the only difference was that I could hike back to my car and drive away. I took the photo, but I left Wilson behind, just in case someone came along who needed a friend. This was a photo of just a plain, old volleyball stuck between two rocks. I ‘Wilsonized’ it using Photoshop.
