Today we take a “Colorized Rorschach Test” as ink is dropped into water, and the photo is dropped into Photoshop…

SOOC

(Straight Out Of Camera)

EXIF:

Nikon D810
Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8
f/20
56mm
200 ISO

 

Lightroomed

  • Rotated 180 degrees
  • Exposure and shadows Lowered
  • Highlights, clarity, vibrance and saturation raised

 

Photoshopped

  • Dodged out the background and converted to a smart object
  • Copied the image to another layer
  • Flipped the top layer horizontally
  • Masked out one side of the top layer
  • Masked out any spillover and any weirdness on the transition line
  • Stretched the image vertically to be less square

 

Final Thoughts

The upside to mirroring these shots, is I can make a completely new photo out of the other side… Bonus!

 

A day later I’ve realized the photo is much cooler if I hadn’t flipped it… Bummer.
