The Great Deku Tree II
“The time has come to test thy courage. I have been cursed. I need you to break the curse with your wisdom and courage. Dost thou have courage enough to undertake this task?”
One last shot of my Deku Tree MOC before I dismantle it — since I’m moving out of my apartment soon!
This image was actually a composite of three photos I shot:
The first image was the tree itself shot with a wide angle lens and a low aperture, to keep the foliage and sky out of focus. Next I added a shot I took of the sun in the sky above Whitestone, NY to create the lens flare effect on the left side. Finally I used another shot of the sky from the same outdoor photo shoot, and then masked it around the tree with blending options in Photoshop, which makes the sky and clouds look more realistic.
