It’s snowing here…again. I can’t remember a recent Winter when we have had this much snow and cold. It seemed like a great day to chill in the studio and get some work done. I took this photo outside my house looking South to my neighbor’s yard. Usually I edit snowy photos in black and white. When I looked at this image on the computer I really wanted to pull out the reddish browns in the tree. I copied the image and changed it to a duo-toned image with a brick red and black. I then added it to a new layer and set the opacity to ‘overlay’. I like the way the dark and reddish tones come out subtly. When I first experimented with making duo-toned images I wasn’t sure how I was going to incorporate it into my work. I like the results of this image and want to investigate more. After all, it appears it will never quit snowing so look forward to a lot of snowy Kansas photos.
