Last week Day 8 was a tutorial on setting up a still life. And using a gradient map, however I didn't do the gradient on this one.

kk_softly, Overlay 71%
kk_revolution, Multiply 81%
curves adjustment to brighten
dodge and burn layer for selective darkening and lightening
Hue/Saturation Layer adjustment to decrease yellows and reds in selective areas.


  1. WOW!! Love the composition of this photo. and the texture look perfect!!

  2. Very nicely done, and I appreciate how you share how you achieved the look too. Lovely!!!

  3. Very well done. That chair is great!

    I still need to get to mine . . . I'm hoping I can do that later this afternoon when the light is better. I'm not sure if I'll use the gradient either . . . I guess I'll try and see. I've never done anything with 'gradients' before . . . did not even know they were there!

    I didn't realize you were in Kim's class too. I pressed on the blog link in your email to me and saw the Beyond Layers header. Your work is phenomenal. This still life is so beautifully done.


I read and appreciate all your comments. Have a blessed day!
