How I Made Whispering The Moon Image

I was not sure what to post on the sixth day of my photo project. I was going through my photo feed on VSCO, and I saw an image I took in Khokana.

I took it some months ago while I was visiting the place with my friends.

I was not sure how to edit, so I thought of converting it to black and white first through the VSCO app.

After that, I played with different tools to make it darker and more visually interesting.

Gave it some finishing touch in the end.

I was not satisfied with the image, I wanted to add something. So I went ahead to the tangent app and added a round shape in the original image.

I didn’t like the shape. Went ahead with another one.

Whispering the Moon 6

Loved this shape. The middle point was in the person standing in the middle of the ground. It made it look visually satisfying.

After that, all I needed to do was convert into black and white similar to the one that I did in the beginning and then add moon to the background. I was inspired to add props–moon–in the image by reading this interview of Jill Emmer.

Here’s the final image:

I hope you found this post helpful.

There’s only one thing that I regret. Not taking a screencast of all the process. I could have made a video walking through exactly what I did.

If you liked this image, I post them regularly on my Instagram. And also on my Facebook page and Facebook account.

Here’s the list of apps I used to edit this image:

  1. VSCO App
  2. VSCO Film for Lightroom
  3. Tangent App
  4. Adobe Photoshop CC
  5. Adobe Lightroom 5
