POP OUTS

A few weeks ago, I happen to be viewing a Post made by one of the people that I follow here on WordPress.  JourneyswithJohnbo is one of the Photographers on WP that I have been following for a number of months now.  He takes some really nice Images of places that I’ve never been too, and probably never will.  Anyway, in one of his Images, he had Posted an interesting Image that seem’d to “Pop Out” at you, thus creating a different look.  This gave me some interest, so I asked him just how that is done.  He told me and with that, I went on my own to try this new type of thing for myself.

I had to do some research on it to find out just how this is done.  Found out that you can do this effect using Photoshop CC.  Since I do have that program, I went further.  Found that I could down-load instructions for this on Photoshop Essentials.  I did this and then with much eagerness started trying to give one of my Images the same effect.

Now, using the instructions that were given me, I followed them step by step until the end.  It didn’t come out right!  I did something wrong!  What was it?  I went back and tried again.  It still didn’t come out right!  What the heck am I doing wrong, I thought.  So, I had to let it sit for awhile so I could think about it.  So, to make a long story shorter, I kept trying until I finally figured out what was wrong.  It took me awhile!  The above Image is my first one done the way I had wanted.  The Image seem’s to “Pop Out” from the rest of the shot.  It is of the building that General George Washington’s Officers stayed in during the Winter of 1777 at Valley Forge, PA.

Well now, here is another one that is an oldie but goodie.  It’s an abandoned home in Shenandoah, PA.  I wanted to make the Main Home “Pop Out” from the rest of the Image.  I sorta messed up the very bottom of the Image, because this is only the 2nd time I’ve done this.  In the future, I’m going to try other Images I have and see how they come out.  I’ll also try and make them bigger.
