Arkaik Virtuoso by Rhonda Strickland

Photographic Prints

Available to buy on…

This is a photo of my son Chance playing with his metal band, Arkaik, at their CD release party for their very first full-length album on Jan. 29, 2010.
The lighting was pretty bad with no spotlights so the original came out very dark. I created this colorful abstract from the original image (below).
Original image:

Shot with my Nikon CP8400

Post treated exclusively in Photoshop using extreme curves, levels on layers with blending modes. Colored, textured textures used to create this effect. A throw away photo saved by Photoshop… :o)
