Experimenting with cross-processing techniques in Photoshop.

Jade, my beautiful niece! She is my sister Carole’s 15 year-old daughter.

We made a photoshoot around a colourful railroad tunnel full of intriguing graffiti.

Jack Johnson’s song Sitting, Waiting, Wishing inspired me the title for this shot. It is the 6th song on the album In Between Dreams (Click on the audio link to the right of the song’s title to listen and see the lyrics.)

    Awesome composition Johanne! It looks like you guys had a VERY succesful shoot and I am looking forward to seeing more from it! Great title for this one as well :)

  • Thank you Shelly! It looks that we finally got the hang of it! I must say that Jade is a natural at this game. :-)

    Great Shot Johanne, very cool pp also. I am loving this series!!

  • Thank you Nathalie! I’m glad that you like the PP. I tried a lot of techniques for cross-processing, but I never fully liked the results. I only hope that I’ll be able to do it again, as I have something like 8 various adjustment layers to obtain this result! LOL!

    If you use photoshop CS3 or CS4 you could make an action with your PP so next time you don’t have to do the steps manually. it saves a lot of time and helps get the same results each time!!

  • You’re right Nathalie. I’m using an old version (Photoshop 6), but I can still make actions. However, each setting needs to be adjusted separately depending on the photo. I guess that I could always record an action with pauses for adjustments…

    Love this series!

  • Thank you Emily, I’ll probably add a few more shots during the next week, as soon as I finish processing them.

    I really like the subtle cross-processing. But more than that, I really like this composition – strongest one yet – she looks relaxed and at complete ease.

  • Thank you Vikram! I’m really glad that you like the PP; I was not sure if I had overdone it or not… :-)

    Ah to be 15 again! Sigh! I wonder what she is waiting and wishing for?
    Excellent composition and pp! This whole series is just wonderful and dynamic and I think some of them would make great advertising ads! By the way, I loved the tune, a new artist for me!

  • Thank you so much Joanne! :-)

    LOL! I guess that she was waiting for me to finish playing with the settings of my camera?

    Jack Johnson is one of my favourite artists. I bought several albums but this particular one, I bought twice, and will have to buy it another time! My first one was “stolen” by my husband, and my replacement was lost at a soccer event. :-(
