A woman of the prairie reflects upon the past with optimistic hope for the future.

Blend of three images (Maternity image, prairie grass and wooded area) with lighting effects and lens flare added in Photoshop CC. Warmth toning also added using color balance and warming filter.

Warmth of the prairie…

A cold wind blows throughout the night, while snow fills the winter air. It’s warm inside my cozy home and I find myself drawn to images of dandelions basking in the warmth of the early summer sun.

Blend of three images:  Grove of trees near my house, dandelions from my lawn last summer and maternity image captured in the studio with strong backlight.  Watercolor filter, lens flare and lighting effects added with Photoshop CC.

Miracle…

Playing around with an edgy style of editing to give the impression of toughness.

Backlit with Canon 580 EX 2 flash.  Front slightly filled with reflector. Reflection is real and not edited into the image, but I did blend another image with jersey on the subject. Edited with Photoshop CC 2015 HDR and added some texture to the edges.
