Re: Castle Creation, Help Needed

Hey Minnie, I'm stepping in a little late in this thread but I'll toss in just a general comment. Hopefully it may add a little value for people. Creating a collage of disparate images has a lot of unique problems to solve, specially in this case where you are taking painted elements and trying to c...

Re: Don Julio monolith

Thanks for looking, folks. I appreciate it. Good to hear the BTS shots are useful. :) Minnie, you are so right. It still amazes me how this one device (the camera) can straddle so many disciplines, from the artist to the scientist. Each has their use and each has their own philosophies and methodolo...

Sorry Piet, I moved this to the Post Processing forum as your original post, nor the subsequent posts, fit under the "tutorial" qualifications.

If you feel I am wrong, please PM me and we can discuss it further. I hope you understand.

Re: value study - blend if

This reminds me of a technique I sometimes use to analyze a composition. I wrote a tutorial on it here; "Three tone guide to composition"

This process is more for compositional analysis than what you're describing here but I thought you might be interested in the similarities.

If anyone is interested in the behind the scene of this shot, here is the layout. Don Julio BTS 1.jpg Don Julio BTS 2.jpg Because of the low key nature of this shot and the reflective nature of the bottle, this shot was taken in a darkened studio. Don't let the brightness of the BTS shot fool you. I...

Re: Blood Wolf Moon

Awesome job. I was too lazy to try and venture the cold. It reached single digits and I personally hate the cold. The warmth of the house far outweighed the thought of getting a moon shot. :D

Re: Matt

Wow, that was not the news I expected.

He was a truly great guy and will be sorely missed around here. I had been looking forward to getting together with him once he felt better.

A sad loss for us all. Thoughts and prayers definitely from my little corner of the world.

Re: Grandkids in three varieties

Thanks Minnie, Dave... These have been more an exercise in creativity than trying to settle on any one look. None of these have been actions though I can probably make them into actions. I really like the naturalness of the watercolor one and finally found a workflow that give somewhat natural looki...
