The Fence

Today’s Photo: The Fence

I love to take photos of landscapes, as if you could not figure that out.  However, when you don’t get to travel as much as I would like, you have to take photos of the same scenes over and over.  That is unless you get creative.  In the country, that’s a funny statement, living within an hour of the center of downtown Atlanta, you can always find a picturesque scene with a fence.  I mean, the back roads have fences along most of them to keep the cows cooped up.

And then the fences have gates in them too.  Yeah, I went there.  So since I now have you in the mood to look at gates, why don’t you go look at “The Gate“.

Photoshop Compositing Secrets

I am so excited.  I got home today to my new copy of Matt Kloskowski’s new book Photoshop Compositing Secrets.  I prefer natural photos with out all the “photoshopping”, but there is just something about a well put together composite.   However, I still can’t wait to get into it and have some fun.  If you have not heard of Photoshop Compositing Secrets, check out the cool video over at Kelby Training.

    Interested to hear your thoughts on the book. I’ve held off learning PhotoShop for years as I feared it would become an endless slippery slope, but I’ve starting doing some editing in Acorn and enjoy it. Looking to upgrade my toolset. Nice photo, too.

      I’ve been using Photoshop for years, but only recently really started learning more advanced features. It’s well worth the time investment. If budget is an issue, then Photoshop Elements is a super buy, plus it has most features a photographer would ever need.

      • I have used photoshop extensively and in photo processing, there is little that can beat using layers during workflow. Right now, however, I have found that 98 percent of my processing goes through lightroom. I find that it is much easier to use and faster.

    • Kris, I agree it can lead to a slippery slope. However, I believe that it has it’s uses and is a valuable addition to the toolbox.
