I thought I would try something a little different today. This is pretty much how my coffee mug appears to me by 3pm on a Friday afternoon. I took this shot in my office using my Samsung S4 camera phone, I turned the grid pattern on, under settings and made sure that the mug was sitting on bottom third on the right hand side of the shot.
I used various filters and effects in Photoshop to take the original shot(above) and added a Gaussian Blur of 4.1 pixel to the background only, after I placed the mug itself on a separate layer. I then changed the hue so that it was black and white in the background only, then adjusted the actual color on the mug to the following; Hue +101, Saturation +46 and Lightness +35. Kind of makes the whole image a little surreal and outlandish; AKA my Friday afternoons!
