A couple of years ago I started photographing flowers on a light box. Some of you may be old enough to remember looking at slide film or negatives using a light box (or maybe using it to trace an image). Using the light box I am able to get a fairly white background because of the opaque plastic top. Sometimes I would add a texture in post-production or leave the background stark white. Well, I was bored today and the weather wasn’t the best for an outside shoot…so I revisited some of those flower images and used my newly discovered favorite Photoshop tool (new to me anyway) – the oil paint effect. I really like how the images turned out. The oil paint effect even gives the white background some depth – now they have an ethereal feel to them. And yes, I got carried away. Enjoy!
