Today’s subject is a foam skull I purchased the last time the Georgia Shakespeare Festival performed Hamlet. I photographed it on my dining table, using just the overhead lights and natural lighting from the window. The tabletop has an interesting design that provided a nice backdrop. I edited it with some filters in Photoshop Express.
Once I had the negative image, I ran it through some other filters.
Then I took the Glow image and processed with some further filters.
