This second photo of the same Fuchsia flower was taken using ambient light coming through my living room window and reflecting off the white cardboard reflector late in the afternoon. To even out this natural light on the subject, I combine seven exposures to generate a HDR image in post-processing.
To achieve this ‘sketch’ effect, I applied the notrO Effect quite heavily, and then played around with the different layer blending modes in Photoshop until this one caught my eye. The effect was emphasized somewhat by increasing the brightness and contrast after desaturation.
