Why I Use Lucis Art #4
As much as I like the effect Lucis has on architecture, it does some awfully strange things to skintones and natural creases in the skin. If there's any place you don't want grit and grunge, it's probably in the face. But you can always use a well-placed mask. This photo was taken a few weeks ago in front of Old Red on the UTMB campus, the oldest medical school building in Texas -- completed in 1891 and surivor of the 1900 Storm. Right now it's vacant and awaiting repairs from Ike, but it's a common backdrop for group photos. These three happy residents recently graduated from our plastic surgery program. I did this version with a Lucis Art layer masked only to the building, keeping the effect off the three people.
