I thought I’d upload 1 more image from the shoot with Harrison (my 6 year old son). The colour adjustments were all made in CS4. It’s the same concoction of flour, water and food colouring as in Surfacing . This was actually the first photo I took of him in the session.

Now all I need to do is think of what I’m going to cover him in next…

    Awesome series Naomi.

    I love bold creative photography. This rocks.

    So did you add the red a blue colours in post-production or was that the colour of the food colouring?

  • The red and blue was in post production. I channel swapped the original red and blue channels to get the yellow, then I duplicated the layer and colorized it til I got the red then made it a layer mask and painted it in.

    Oh his EYES!!
    Amazing post work to get the colours (I won’t even pretend to understand what “channel swapped” is … but the result is FANTASTIC!)
