If you’ve ever wanted to explain how the aperture on your camera works but didn’t quite have the words, or you’re looking to understand the science behind it just a little better, don’t miss this video by the folks at MinutePhysics.
In this Photoshop tutorial, you are going to learn how to add your text in a heart shape in Photoshop CS6. This means that you text you type will simply take the frame of a heart. And to do this, we will be working with the Custom Shapes Tool.
From the time that I first began to photograph, one subject that always interested me was clouds. I have always loved the old black and white photographs of Ansel Adams and have admired not only his landscapes, but also the way the landscapes were made spectacular by the cloud cover in the scene.
Calibration, color space, color profiles, soft proofing. To most of us, they’re some of the least fun aspects of photography. But a little education can go a long way in making your photos looks great whether you’re displaying them on a computer monitor or printing them.
Creating visually stunning effects in your photography doesn’t have to be expensive. If you haven’t got a studio or your own personal smoke machine, don’t sweat it.
If you are photographing a puppy or a dog with very little training, you will need a different strategy than if you are working with an older, highly trained dog. Before your shoot, have a conversation with the owner and find out if your subject can obey commands, such as “sit” and “stay.”
Digital cameras are capable of producing incredibly high-quality pictures these days. That is only one part of the equation, however. You, the photographer, have to understand not only how to use the camera properly, but also what other factors are involved in creating a beautiful image. If you have ever returned from a day of taking pictures only to be dissatisfied by the end result, these tips are for you.
Hoey starts with a test shot with his basic setup. He’s shooting with a Canon EOS 5D Mark II equipped with a Canon 50mm f/1.8 lens, which he explains is ideal for this sort of shoot due to its fantastic depth of field. He has a Flashpoint Streaklight 360 set up overhead, outfitted with a beauty dish to diffuse the light.
Back in the day, Ansel Adams created the zone system for seeing light, processing negatives, and darkroom developing to get really high contrast, beautiful prints. Since film and digital are so different, we don’t talk about the zone system so much anymore, but photographer Mark Wallace has come up with his own abbreviated version.
Until today I used a couple of vector triangulators and can assure you that Image Triangulator App from Concept Art is the most convenient from all. You have an opportunity to work in three active modes. You can add points to an original image, work with mesh and with colored polygons. As a result, you export a pdf file which could be easily edited in Adobe Illustrator. Read about how to get the excellent result in polygonal art style in minimal time period.
