It’s About The Displaying

Posted in Editorial, Photoshop Composition with tags , , , , , , on March 24, 2013 by Art of Photography

Here is a picture of Marilyn Monroe. She certainly was a beauty.
My efforts here this morning were not about her picture but how to display it.
(Click the image, thumbnails hid a lot of important detail)
Not saying this is the best way, just experimenting.
I think this would work if there were several pictures to display.
I’ll work on that next.

Frame Meets Aging

I’m having a lousy weekend. Nothing is working out right.
This was supposed to be about making a grunge border however I started playing with blending styles and ended up with the below composition. I cannot make up my mind if I like it or not. I do like the two-tone effect across her face and upper arm however.

Last Image Processed For 2012

This is from a family shoot and represent the last processed image of 2012 for Art of Photography. I will be posting an online version of my 2012 book in the near future but those are completed works.
Have a great 2013 and I hope you remember 2012 fondly.

Another Saturday Image

Posted in Image Post with tags , , , , on December 1, 2012 by Art of Photography

Today I was working with Match Color and Color Look up in Photoshop. These tools in ‘shop modify the original colors in an image and are cousins to the darkroom technique of cross processing and bleaching and the painter’s trick of using another artist palette or type of paints.

Napoleon at the St. Bernard Pass

Napoleon at the St. Bernard Pass (Jacques-Louis David) was used as the color basis. The hope was the modified image would have a subtle painterly tone to it without looking like an actual painted composition.

Here is the final work

Does it feel like she was on a horse being photographed with a cheap camera and flash? I hope so…
