30 of 365 for 2009 “Boy”

"Boy"

My son and I went and played a round of miniature golf, his first time doing so. We had a blast and he wanted to “play the back 9”, ha!

I got this effect using two copied layers, one turned to b&w and one inverted with blend mode Color Dodge with Gaussian Blur. The original color layer has an opacity of 20% and you end up with a sketch looking photo. I haven’t perfected this look and tend to get them too bright. It works best with bold colors and with portraits.
