You know it is Spring when you see these beautiful flowers on sale everywhere. I love Ranunculus! Last year I released a whole series of Ranunculus prints and I wanted to do something a little different for this year. I decided to emphasize the petals and the subtle differences in tone in each petal.
To process this I used CoffeeShop’s Chocolate Black and White Action. I had to darken the photo quite a bit for the levels layer of the action then I adjusted the lighten layer to where I wanted it. After flattening, I adjusted the levels by brightening up the whites and bringing the midtones closer to the white side for the drama.
Here are a couple more to enjoy.
I also broke out my TTV contraption and took a couple shots.
