I stayed in and used Photoshop today...

Recommended Posts

I shot this with a fisheye to add my own distorted reality. After desaturating and bumping contrast and detail, I had to add the screen in PS from a different HDR exposure.

 

Strange Movie...Doctor Strange, that is.

I had some shots that just screamed to be rendered in B&W. I couldn't stand the screaming, so I did it just to shut them up.

Ok folks...YOUR TURN!

 

Take a minute and have some fun. Your photos feel unloved if you just take them and forget about them. :)

Sifting through some old photos during my ongoing project to clean up all the old directories.

 

Spokane river after the rain melted a lot of snow.

Used Silver Efex Pro to make them pop a bit.

My friend is a dedicated climber and cave explorer. When she was captured with her hands out in an unorthodox manner, plenty of people commented on what she was doing. “Eating the world’s largest ear of corn,” “holding a giant pack rat” or “breaking her air guitar.” I brought their thoughts to life.

Not Photoshop, but I was playing with the HDR photo merge in Lightroom.

 

I attempted to create HDRs from a few Iceland pictures taken in 2013 with my old SONY A100.

 

Jpegs under - correct - over exposed, then HDR merged.

 

What do you think?

I found a new program today, DAP 5 (Dynamic Auto Painter). It can save some ok pictures into interesting paintings.

I took a water taxi out of this one.

Every year, my daughter spends what must be hours scouring Pintrest for birthday photo ideas. This year was the Obvious Photoshop theme.

 

A background with a dinosaur that she purchased plus Matthew "riding" the back of a recliner with flash at the same position as the dino picture.

Giant flamingo inflatable plus shot of Seven Mile Beach pier from the archives...and about 50 shots of Jackie as she went from smiles to laughter to (fake) tears to pout to jumping on flamingo like a trampoline and generally running around like a ferret with a sugar rush. Oh, and the "2" balloon that kept spinning in the wind.

Glad that's over for another year.

As you walk down the fairway of life you must smell the roses, for you only get to play one round.

Culling the general inbox and ran into a shot that deserved monochromization (my new word).

 

Fun with Photoshop.

I'm not a big user of PS but I do sometimes use my version 6. I've found better and less expensive editing packages to use. The first example needed some very slight enhancement of the silhouetted colored flowers in the foreground. It was taken in 2008 on Lake Travis at the Oasis Restaurant. In the 2nd example, I needed to get rid of two characters for my Mother-in-law's calendar. PhotoShop worked great but has a sharp learning curve.

Great job taking the two people out of the photo.  I only do the simple things with my Photoshop Elements program.

 

I like this image of the Elijah P. Lovejoy memorial but I didn't like the vehicle in the photo and the power lines.  I cropped the  photo, took out the power lines, and resized it.

Original picture.

Walking/biking trail sign 'shopped to match the image that formed in my mind one millisecond after I saw it...

The original, if you were wondering.

Very funny.  Perhaps on the sign you should make it read Gassing instead of Passing.

"At the Bar." My vision for this photo had the people in total silhouette. Basically, exposed for the background then further reduced the exposure of the people in post.
