Adobe would like to think that no photographer could imagine living without this product, but in reality, most digital photographers have survived without it for years and question why the need it now. Much of the confusion for many photographers exists because the feature set of each of the Photoshop products overlap, e.g. they all allow you to adjust the brightness and contrast of your image.
(Layer>New Adjustment Layer>Gradient Map) at the top of the layer stack. The effect will be very strong but it can look better if blend modes are used. I find that lowering the Opacity of the adjustment layer to around 30% and changing the blend mode to Soft Light produces a nice effect.
On an early October evening in 1843, Charles Dickens stepped from the brick-and-stone portico of his home near Regent's Park in London. The cool air of dusk was a relief from the day's unseasonal humidity, as the author began his nightly walk through what he called "the black streets" of the city.
A good part of the U.S. has snow and lots of it at the moment, I know we do here in New England, and have even heard friends talk about it down in Texas this year, Houston no less, amazing. I therefore thought it would be a good time to remind folks the main trick to photographing snow.
Anyway, the point is that although most of you are thinking your little P&S cameras take pretty good photos, and they do, knowing a few details can make sure that they stay good, even in the tricky situations. What makes a tricky situation, well, it’s going to be light 99% of the time. And what is it exactly that the big SLR, with a big honker lens hanging on it has that the little point and shoot doesn’t, anyway? My answer to that is besides big
Lightroom is the photo “everything” solution for photographers. As you can read anywhere, it is NOT a replacement for Photoshop. I would go so far as to say it’s a very good replacement for Bridge, however. Some will still hold that Bridge, Lightroom and Photoshop are a good trifecta, but honestly speaking I think Bridge is becoming, and will prove to be mostly redundant—unless you’ve been married to Bridge for more years than you can count, and
When merging a set of layers so you can work on your image in a single-layer way, try stamping them to a new layer instead. Select all relevant layers and press Command-Option-E (PC: Ctrl-Alt-E). Its the same as duplicating them, then merging, but quicker.
You can now hide the visibility of the original layers (click on their Eye icons) and keep them as backup in case you need to alter them individually again.
Okay, this one really isn't for that many people out there, however I saw a guy walking down Newbury the other day with a Nikon D3X around his neck (yeah, really) - but he also had the Nikon factory camera strap attached, as well as the cap still proudly displayed on the "kit-lens" that came with it (think of that like an extra battery). Okay, so even fewer still probably know what I am talking about with the Nikon guy, but some of you do, or get i
Heads up, smokers: Lighting up near your computer is heresy enough that Apple says it voids your warranty should you need to bring a smoke-exposed computer in for repair.
First press the letter I to select the Eyedropper tool, then click-and-hold inside your document, and drag outside the document window onto the object you’d like to sample. Release your mouse button and the sampled color appears as your new foreground color. That’s it and it is a great tip for getting a really neat color picked off of a website or other object you have anywhere on your computer screen.
When you create a grid box inside Vanishing Point, in addition to having the option of returning that grid back to Photoshop as a 3D object, you also have the option of exporting it as a 3D object that you can import into After Effects CS4 and manipulate in a 3D layer. Just click on the small right-facing triangle in the top of the dialog, and in the fly out menu, choose Export for After Effects (.vpe).
If your're in Bridge and you want to open a RAW photo without going through the Camera Raw dialog, just press and hold the shift key--then double click the image. It'll bypass the Camera Raw dialog, apply the current settings to the photo, and open it in Photoshop.
Russian-American pianist Constantine Finehouse, praised for “interpretations of depth and maturity,” was born in St. Petersburg, raised in Boston and educated at New England Conservatory, Juilliard and Yale. As part of American Double, he released a 2CD album of William Bolcom’s complete violin and piano music on Albany Records in September 2007. Finehouse is currently recording Bolcom’s solo piano music for Naxos Records. He has performed extensively in the US and abroad as a soloist and chamber musician.
Among other things, digital capture and post-production have created a more thoughtful and sophisticated approach to light. We have always seen a real-life scene in quite a different way from a recorded image, but before digital the options for reconciling the scene with the image were limited. So limited, in fact, that there was little point worrying over fundamentals like capturing the entire tonal range of a high-contrast scene, or trying to br
11 years prior to this a man well known in some circles, a physicist to be precise, named Tim Berners-Lee had been working on a project called Enquire, a prototype system that used the concept of hypertext to allow the sharing and updating of information among CERN’s researchers. At this point the internet had become a haven for scientists and academics alike, and by 1989 CERN had become the largest internet node in Europe. Berners-Lee wrote a pap
I am going to start a short series on light here in the blog, which will be emulated in the online book of photography—in a more linear fashion, both here on the Two Geeks and a Girl Website.
To begin with, Wikipedia answers the question thusly: A webpage or web page is a document or resource of information that is suitable for the World Wide Web and can be accessed through a web browser and displayed on a computer screen.

Therefore, unless you take a Photography 101 course in college, there is a degree of difficulty picking up the basics of what the modern digital camera is doing with all its present day automation. However, learning some very basic concepts in photography, aside from light and color, can be very beneficial. You will soon find that when a photographic situation becomes a bit tricky, being able to get your camera out of that super-auto mode and fly with the stick, to borrow an expression from aviation, will be quite helpful for you, and this is even more true when the creative you wants to
In recent months , investment has shifted abruptly from traditional media and “real world” environments to the internet, which provides the means to reach the largest possible audience in a relatively cost-effective manner.
