This is another photo from the Digital Days model shoot in Houston. I did a little something different with this image - I used the dreaded Lucis Art filter on a layer with a blending mode and dialed it back. I think it was the first time I've ever applied a blending mode with a Lucis layer. Anyway, I think it made for an interesting (not overwhelming) level of shadow detail. I also used a Nik Silver Efex sepia layer, again in a blending mode, then painted back a little color in the face. Funny how when you start using blending modes with textures like I've been doing a lot lately, that concept makes you start working with traditional layers the same way. It definitely opens up some new levels of tonality.
