Praying for Spring by Lori Deiter

A winter storm ~ Poor Chippy!!
I am thankful for Adobe Photoshop (and Chippy is thankful for spring). Since Chippy hibernates from November until March, I never get “real” pictures of him in the snow. I wanted a wintry image for my Chipmunk Adventures calendar.

This is a digital compilation of Chippy with several layers of falling snow (made in adobe photoshop). Cloned some real snow from another photo and a little air brushing for a wintry look.

Original photo taken in my backyard
Canon Rebel Xti, 75-300 mm lens at 300 mm
F/5.6, ISO 400, Shutter 1/100 sec.

Image created 10/29/10 – original photo (without snow) taken from my back door, Clarks Valley, Pennsylvania, USA

Here’s a Tutorial on Creating Snow in photoshop
If you don’t get snow…. make your own!! :o)
