Today I wanted to achieve a creamy background. I used my zoom lens out behind my house and captured this beautiful wildflower. I also challenged myself to do my initial edits in ACR (Adobe Camera Raw) on the raw file. I was having some banding issues after importing into Photoshop when I tried to manipulate the curves so back to Google I go and find that I should edit in 16-bit mode. That helped a tremendous amount.
So here's a pretty flower, lol.
Thanks for looking!
