Home Made Cream Of Broccoli Soup

And it was delicious, I might add!

You do what you have to do. This week's +Project52-2012 theme was 'S' Curves, but there wasn't much chance of me getting out and about and I was wracking my brain trying to think of what I could do. After I warmed up some home made cream of broccoli soup, I stirred in a touch of cream. As I stirred, all became clear- so to speak. So I grabbed the cream again and laid in a dollop, then swirled it into the 'S' shape with my spoon. Voila!

I took several hand held exposures and ended up having to combine two shots vertically to get rid of a shadow of the lens from the flash. There was massive clean up of stray bits of soup, and masking out the counter-top which was replaced by a custom background. An additional custom vignette layer was added and set to 'exclusion' blend mode to make it all look like studio lighting. A final levels adjustment on the soup layer to make it pop a bit, and I was done.
