For Nancy Merrill’s A Photo A Week Photography Challenge, I decided to use an image I photographed whilst at Cliftonville Bay in Kent. I wanted to do something different with this image… I knew I wanted a paint-effect but was unsure of what type of effect I was trying to achieve.
So I used Topaz Studio and modified a Preset called ‘Chalk Smudge III‘. Initially, I started out in Lightroom and then Edited in Topaz Studio, when happy when the paint-effect I then returned to Lightroom, where I added some dodge and burn. And then added a Colour Preset to the image called ‘Bright‘. Then I added a Vignette.
