Shot Notes

This silhouette was taken in Negril in Jamaica. The sunset was not that interesting so I decided to try out a technique called split toning I saw on this blog. Split toning works by making the shadows one colour and the highlights another. This used to be done by developing with different combinations of chemicals. In the digital age its a lot simpler. Andrew Briggs used Lightrooms split toning tools for his image. I do not have Lightroom so I downloaded some photoshop actions instead. Actions are a way of automating tasks to save time. The split toning actions had several different options so I could not resist building up several layers with different split toning colours then mixing them together with different (blending modes) to create some really strong colours.
