I completed the last of my themes yesterday, so today is a good day to catch up some of the silhouettes that I’ve been working on.
One of the new things that I did with Aperture was to create my own Preset.. first one! I call it silhouette; it improves blacks and adds a bit of hue. The top “man silhouette” does not have the preset; the next one does.
I applied it to the two “tree silhouettes” but varied the hue strength.
The last one has no hue adjustment; but I did retouch to get rid of small pins of light and bad pixels.
Anyway, I still don’t feel that I have found the perfect silhouette subject… so I’m sure you’ll see more in May. I am looking for the perfect Saguaro cactus.
