A bit late this week due to an untimely bug that had me KO for the last 24 hours, but we are thankfully on the mend. So this week I wanted to try something a bit different from the norm. Its been a while since I have done anything with animals so this week I decided to re-do an image of Luipan, a gorgeous Siberian Huskey which I shot back in 2011. They say that you should never work with Children or Animals? Well Luipan is the exception to the rule, I fell in love with this little pup after having to travel down to Kilkenny to collect him for a family member. By the time we got back to Kildare, I was seriously considering keeping him for myself.
What really stood out for me were the eyes, Luipan was duel eyed, which I believe is a rare condition in Huskeys, but is simply stunning to see. For this rework I de-saturated the image, then using a layer mask I painted back the color in the eyes. Unfortunately the original image was cropped to tight on the top, so part of the ears are missing. Not being able to do much about that, I decided to do a tight square crop around the head, which I think works quite well.
So thats the Re-work for this week, hope to see you all next Wednesday for another image taken from the archives.
