An otter for this one, taken at Twycross Zoo…

The same grass texture was used that I used in this one with the main image placed on to it and erased to blend it in. A water texture was added to the bottom of the frame and erased to blend because, well, it’s a picture of an otter, I thought it needed some water. :) This was duplicated again and theopacity reduced. Flattened and converted to black and white, contrast adjusted in curves and a sepia tone added in curves also.

I’ve been taking photographs since 1997 and I still love it. After a brief dislike of photomanipulation I now use Photoshop extensively on a majority of my work. People are my favourite subject and I’m always on the look out for new models, so drop me a line if you’re interested! :)
