Photoshop is not a dirty word. 

To me, the image is not fully dressed until it has been through the digital darkroom. Photoshop can also be used to create digital art, or to forge a combination of the two. 

Here are some examples.  

The photography style known by the name of the photographer who made this technique famous - Pep Ventosa. You can see the st up of this image here.

Some days all you want to do is snuggle up with a good book. 

Trying the Adamski Effect - using a technique in Photoshop that creates a path blur, I quickly became hooked on these images. You can see more of them here, plus a link to the tutorial I used to create them.

My first attempt at the Thanos Effect

To get this image I half filled a fish tank with water and had the LSH create waves by dragging a chopping board from one side to the other.

The light bulb was placed on a white perspex to create the reflections. Both images were photographed against a white background which was lit by two flash guns. There was also another speedlight with a large diffuser over my right shoulder.

Then started the hard work to combine them in Photoshop, adding a blue colour to the waves, making sure I got the right shadows, highlights and reflections on the bulb, and cloning out the hundreds of stray bubbles!

The sad thing about getting older is that no-one knows you are still young on the inside.

I love to see the world through his eyes.

Taking my "Anyone for Tennis" photo (you can see the making of that image under Blog), I added a background of a Milky Way photo which was captured in Marsabit in Kenya, and replaced the tennis ball with a globe.

Created by taking two images - one with Francesca resting atop a stepladder,  and one with just the background without Francesca in it; then combine the two in Photoshop.
