Ok, a show of hands: who thought I would actually get this far in my photo a day project? Anyone? Well, my hand is half raised. I’ve had my doubts that I would finish many times during the journey. Of course, there is a long way to go, but I’m committed!  Only 168 days to go.

A Show of Hands: Day 197

A Show of Hands: Day 197

I had a blast creating this one.  This idea has popped up several times during the project, but today is the day I actually shot something for it.   The final image contains 5 different shots of my right hand against a blank wall in my office and a shot of just the wall.  I flipped the “four” and the “two” hands in Photoshop (PS) to make both of them lefties.  I added shadows and a mottled texture to the background and did a ton of overall and spot color toning, exposure adjustments and other effects using adjustment layers in PS as well as plugins from On1, Topaz, and Nik.
