Atlas Moth – The Flying Kind

Atlas Moth
This photo was inspired by Rich Lemonie‘s photograph in the December issue of Photoshop User, the magazine for members of the National Association of Photoshop Professionals. I shot this image of an Atticus Atlas moth several years ago at the Sophia M. Sachs Butterfly House, in Faust Park in St. Louis County, a part of the Missouri Botanical Garden . I knew it was a moth, just not which kind, so I went to my go-to source, Google. Did you know there is a band named Atlas Moth? Neither did I, at least not until I clicked on the link and realized the site was not about a small flying creature.
I used a number of filters and adjustment masks to achieve a look I was happy with.Photoshop

For anyone really into Photoshop, the National Association of Photoshop Professionals is well worth the subscription price. Not only do you get access to full length Photoshop classes on video, tutorials, member discounts and forums, you get ten issues of the magazine “Photoshop User”.
