Master Photoshop, Artistic Compositions

  The Photoshop course I started taking a few months ago is still paying off dividends.  As I’ve said previously, it is hands-down, the BEST creative Photoshop course I’ve tried. I’m finding new uses for images that go back several years, as well as some that I’ve recently taken.  The images above show quick and […]

Photoshop Post-Processing Clip

Over Ed’s Shoulder Video Clip:  Post-Processing “Figure in Tulle.” There were a lot of things I liked about this image, but as usual, a few things I thought could use some improvement.  This video clip shows you in under 3 minutes what took about 15 minutes to produce.  Main goals here: Enhance the breast area […]

Photoshop Canvas Art

The other day I placed an on-line order with CanvasOnDemand.com for a couple of canvases. I ordered a 16×20 and a 20×30 (thin wrap style, but there are several other options) and they just arrived. Thumbs-up to them for a painless ordering process, good packaging (see video below), and quality work. These pieces were actually […]

Shooting With Less Gear Can Be Liberating

I decided to head over to the studio without my lights, modifiers, variety of lenses, PocketWizards and all the rest of the equipment I normally take with me.  I did everything with my 7D and a 50mm lens.  I started doing this every now and then awhile back.  It began as an exercise to help […]

Getting Artistic With Photoshop

I recently began taking Sebastian Michaels’ new course, on Fine-Art Grunge Photoshop, and am already very impressed.  When I started taking the course, I was expecting to see a series of simple how-to videos, but the course goes beyond that.  I asked Michaels to talk about his approach, and the approach he wants his students […]

Do Snapseed and Instagram Effects Cheapen Your Photography?

I posted the following images up in our FB group the other day and asked if others sometimes went through this process of taking a perfectly good basic shot and post-processing it with Snapseed and/or Instagram filters.  Lots of good responses including those who argued that filters and processing often take away from the quality […]

Over-Used Post-processing Techniques

Film, filters, chemical processing, and paper used to be the determining factor in the overall look and texture of an image.  Digital changed all that so long ago that even many of us old pros don’t make the comparisons between the old darkroom and the digital one anymore.  The look of our images is determined […]
