In addition to being the home of the Indiana University Hoosiers, Bloomington, Indiana, is, as you can likely infer from its name, known for its many trees and flowers. It is, in my somewhat biased opinion, the prettiest town in the state. I instantly loved this photo, from my shoot with Destiny, but when I threw it into Photoshop for editing, I knew that some revamping would serve the image well.
I loved the effect and the color of the bokeh flowers in the background and I wanted to try adapting the orientation of this photo from portrait to landscape to capitalize on these gorgeous flowers even more. So I expanded the canvas and got to work adding flowers to the background. It took quite a bit of time, patience, and use of Photoshop's stamp and patch tools, but I made it happen.
