A field of sunflowers on a beautiful sunny day in July was the subject for some members of the Quad Cities Photography Club. Jackie Gerse created this unusual image from those she photographed that day. She extracted just the face of one flower from the rest of the original image and processed it with Lightroom and then in Photoshop.
She explains what she did to get the image: “In Photoshop, I did a technique called ‘step and repeat,’ which was set up to duplicate the original image while reducing it in size and then rotating it. After the process yielded around 30 duplicated layers, they were moved into position to form a spiral. In order to perfect the spiral, masking was applied to the layers to get the petals to flow around the spiral. Then a little burning was done to darken the area behind the petals so the spiral appeared to have more depth.”
