I wanted to share a selfie of Jynx, who is new to the cat cafe. His photograph is black and white with a touch of colour for added intrigue. Would any of your photographs respond to this interesting technique? It wasn’t hard to do, let me tell you how.
Black and white photography has captured my attention throughout October and I am reading a lot about it so you can see if this style will work for you.
Jynx is a lovely tabby and white cat who settled into the cafe environment really quickly! I managed to get some photos but wanted you to see this one because it is black and white, and also in portrait format.
How To Add Green Eyes
Most photo apps and programs have something called a Lasoo. Your program might have a different name and you can usually find it by checking your manual or doing an online search.
To make sure I defined Jynx-s eyes I zoomed close so that the eyes filled the screen. Then I used the Lasoo to outline the eye shape as carefully as I could, then used a fill (flood) tool within the boundary of the area I had drawn.
You may need to try it a few times if you have not done this before but keep going!
Why didn’t I crop the photo?
A good question. Because I like it as it is really.
There is lots of space around and above Jynx. I know, this might have looked odd had he been looking off to one side or directly at the camera but, because he is looking slightly upwards, for me the photograph works.
A touch of colour fun
Best of all, I drew carefully around the eyes with a lasso tool and shaded Jynx’s eyes green! here are other ways to change the eye colour, or anything in a photo and I will report on those soon!
