One of the hummingbird sessions, instead of the normal photographing the birds with a nice greenish background. We tried a different technique, a high key photograph. At our setups for our "normal" photography. We were utilizing a ISO of 320 and the f-stop was between 11 and 13. For this session, we utilized a ISO of 1000 and an f-stop of 5.6. We utilized a white background and high-speed flash synchronization.
I really like the effect and captured one photograph of a a Green Hermit that I decided to convert to a Japanese-style picture. I am going to print it on rag paper and offer the prints for sale.
Taking the original print, I first cropped the photograph to to a 2 x 3 vertical crop, next I exported the photograph from light room into Photoshop, and added some canvas to the bottom.
In the meantime, I had Googled the words green, hermit, and bee to obtain the correct Japanese symbols.
I adjusted the symbols in Photoshop to the proper dimensions, and in a new layer, moved the symbols into position on the print. In another layer I drew the rectangle around the symbols for the Green Hermit and turn them rectangle into a red border. By increasing the campus size by a quarter of an inch and having the fill is red. I created the border around the whole picture. Then I added a note other half inch of campus all away around the picture, but utilized white as my fill color.
