Spirit Bear

Spirit Bear

Its time for another Photoshop experiment.  I am still enjoying exploring what you can do with this program without spending alot of time in trying to come up with perfect versions of my experiments.  I thought it would be fun to combine a couple of shots of the same animal into a single photo.  I took one of my close up views of a beautiful brown bear from Alaska this summer and used one of the creative filters to make it look like an oil painting to give it kind of surreal look.  I turned it into a sepia toned  portrait and added a vignette around the subject to fade out the details around the edges.  I then superimposed an action photo of the same bear into the corner and masked out the extraneous details.  While it is by no means perfect, I like the overall effect of the result.  Hope you enjoy also…….
