Oh yes. I’m still trying to figure out blend-if, luminosity masks and so much more. In composites I always paint my way into a problem somewhere. I put it all together and there is one area at the end that’s a train wreck. Then I try to find some way to fix or hide it.

To be honest, I like mannequins better than models. They are fake and you know it. Models are humans that look fake. When I shoot humans I want them to be themselves. That’s what I like about street photography.

Absolutely !!! I just had a similar conversation with Sharon about just that ... fake smiles, and body language. Altho, by shooting mannequins you never will be accused of any inappropriate shots, such as in NOLA.

I just don’t “get” the attraction of people contorted into weird positions. I’m in this long term photoshop class, and probably more than 3/4 of the work they study and create is about models in weird positions with hats made out of birds, trees growing out of their backs, wings, stars falling out of their eyes. I’m learning a lot but the stuff I do with those techniques is like this, or the bird painting the picture of the giraffe. I’m trying to do something with the opera singer in NOLA. He is a challenge!
