Milton Keynes is home to one of the longest indoor ski slopes in the UK. This image shows part of the Xscape’s roof inside which is the SnoZone. Today’s image started off life as a rather unremarkable picture taken on a dull day but the image you see here is the result of using the Solarize filter – available in Photoshop or Elements at Filter/Stylize/Solarize.
I’ve posted several images over the last year or two that have been Solarized during processing, and I think it’s time that I explained what Solarization is, and how easy it is to use in the Digital Era.
Over on my other blog – iSighting – fresh off the press this morning, is a Mini Tutorial on Solarization showing the steps taken to reach this image, together with a little background on what Solarization is, and how Solarization was achieved in the Darkroom Days.
