Working with White Balance

The following question came to me recently, so I thought I’d answer it here: Q:  I have a few questions/misunderstandings about white balance (WB) and how to set it as close as possible in camera settings. I know it may be difficult to set perfect WB, but setting a proper WB can be confusing for […]

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.

Photoshop Artistry Course Just Got Better

Creating Canvas-Quality Art

If you’ve been keeping up, you know that I’ve been taking a new online course in Fine-Art Photoshop techniques.  I haven’t gotten though 1/3 of it yet, but I’m already starting to get the idea of what is possible, even for a guy like me who’s generally more interested in straight photography than composite work […]

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 […]

Photoshop Patch Tool Demo

I’ve seen a few questions lately, about fixing tan lines.  I guess that’s going to happen during the summer months.  So, I decided to show you a quick and easy way to fix tan lines and other skin/color issues using Photoshop’s Patch tool.  There are other ways to do this, of course, but this is […]
