” If you want to be a different fish, jump out of the school.” ~ D Van Vliet
Koi and lotus together are some of my favorite things to shoot as a duo. The fish or lotus pads alone would be rather boring but together they manage to create more of a harmonious, complete feel. A polarizing filter is a necessity, without one too many reflections would dull the clarity of the image. My goal here was to create a more painterly effect, although I did not use a texture on this one…it was the color I played around with a bit and also used a few of the Nik Color Efex Pro filters.
I hope everyone had a nice holiday! We kept it pretty simple yet my body is still longing to get back to normal eating and some exercise!
