There’s a great community for photographers on the web called I Heart Faces. I love visiting their site and reading up on latest trends and tricks, and also joining in their online forums considering all things photography. Every Friday they have a new “Fix-it Friday” s.o.o.c. photo where anyone can download and edit that week’s photo in their own way. This one caught my eye; I knew I wanted to really push the reality boundaries and ramp it up a lot, just for fun! I felt like the action and movement in the photo deserved a colorful pop. I also knew right away that I wanted to take out the boulder/log to make it look like he was flying. I called my edit “Coming in for a landing”.
This is my edit:
This is the original, s.o.o.c. shot from iheartfaces.com: (Which I think is a really amazing photo to begin with! I love the composition and “fish eye” lens look.)
