Unleashed Edit: Charlie Through Autumn Leaves

View All Edits

This stunning image has a deceptively easy technique behind its creation, and in the tutorial Craig spills the beans on exactly how it was shot to create this effect.

As simple as it was, the resulting image still needed some tweaks to colour, tone and content to accentuate the drama and improve the colour harmony.

Some close attention to detail to remove distractions finishes this image off perfectly.
