“So many of our dreams at first seem impossible, then they seem improbable, and then, when we summon the will, they soon become inevitable.”  Christopher Reeve 

Yeah, well – so I’ve been back to working out lately after about an eight month hiatus.  How impressive is this!!!  I know, pretty crazy.  What’s a 60 year old Grandma to do??  

OK, truth is . . . Photoshop is amazing!  

It all started with one of the guys in the 365 taking his picture with the Rocky statue in front of the Museum of Art in Philadelphia.  The next day, he posted a shot of himself standing in the imprint of Sylvester Stallone’s shoes in the sidewalk.  Soon, there appeared a photo of another one of the 365 guys (our resident Photoshop Guru) with super pumped up triceps.  Not long after that photo was posted, one of my fellow female 365’ers posted a shot of HER super uber pumped triceps.  So I just had to get in on the action.  The other’s weren’t wielding a weight so I grabbed a 15lb’er, set up my tri-pod, set aperture, focus and timer and captured this shot.  

Well, maybe not exactly this shot.

I  processed it using Nik Software Silver Efex Pro in LR4.  I then exported it to Photoshop CS6 where I used the Liquify Filter to “enhance” my triceps, and added a photo mask by Liv.eDesigns.  

Not much . . . just a bit . . . I mean . . . a girl can dream right?? 



“I have a punishing workout regimen.  Every day I do 3 minutes on a treadmill, then I lie down, drink a glass of vodka and smoke a cigarette.”  Anthony Hopkins

Well, I don’t drink, or smoke . . . so I guess that leaves the treadmill and a lie down!  Since I’m not great at napping . . . guess I’ll just give this workout a good go of it!  I’ve been slack on my workouts of late . . . and it just feels so good to be getting back on track.  I’m pumped.  I’m motivated.  

I guess that’s why it felt right to process this in Lightroom – I put it together in the Print module, then processed the saved jpeg with Trey Ratcliff’s “HDR in Lightroom: On Drugs”.  I’m loving his presets!
