Beauty in Dead Trees

May 18, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

I have a new gallery called Symmetry. I have used images of dead trees to make symmetric arrangements that look like drawings. Symmetry 3 blogSymmetry 3 blogOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
 

How did I do it? I started with the images of bare trees against sky and cloud. In photoshop, I made a duplicate layer. Then Image--> Adjustments --> Threshold. That made the image black and white with no shades of grey. Then to remove the background (the now white sky) I selected Select --> Color Range --> Highlights--> Whole Image --> OK. The white sky will be selected. Press Delete. The background is gone. Now you can copy and paste your tree skeleton onto any background or make "drawings" as I have done. Very easy technique.
