S.O.S. Moment #1

Tone on Tone
Today I am starting a new series of videos that will be technique videos. Hopefully this series will help you to try something new, reconsider something you have tried before, and/or provide you with some new inspiration.

For today's S.O.S. moment I decided to work on tone on tone. Which means, in this case, using the same color for my focal image, layering, and sentiment. I think it gives a very classic yet simple look. Try it!

Picture and tutorial below.
