Elvis Busts at Honest Eds

One person’s junk is another person’s photograph. It is a saying I coined and this photograph illustrates it. This photograph is a camera phone photograph of Elvis busts for sale at Honest Ed’s in Toronto Canada.

The photograph when originally shot contained a lot of muted colours. One of my favorite workflows for camera phones is to edit things in LAB colour mode. I can make the photo pop with one adjustment layer.

All I do is create a new curves adjustment layer. Steepen the A and B curves in both directions and increase contrast in zones 4 & 7 in the L curve. Easy stuff. I also did a little Gaussian blur of the background to put emphasis on the Elvi? Elvises?
