Today we announce the winner of the "Best of 2007" competition and we take the second to last step in producing the Opelia's Mother image. This time we tackle the very tricky reflections and use the warp tool together with some neat blending and layering.
This week we take another step with Jolene's Ophelia's Mother image and we see the welcome return of the composition segment where we'll be learning to get closer. We've also got the entries to the best of 2007 competition and I'll show you what I've chosen as a prize. The winner will be announced next week.
Back on track this week with a solid 15 minutes or more of video tutorial covering masking, adding depth with highlight and lowlight manipulation plus smart objects and a whole lot more. We also launch the PhotoWalkthrough "Best of 2007" competition with a magical mystery prize that I've not chosen yet. Music for this week's slideshow is provided by Mindy Smith and has a smooth Christmas vibe.
It's my first full show since our baby was born so little Catherine makes a brief appearance and then we're back to business with the next chapter in Tutorial 14 - Ophelia's Mother. We work with HDR images in Photoshop this time and I've replaced the composition segment with a quick Lightroom tip on cropping. And as usual there's the slideshow of the entries to last week's assignment set to some podsafe music. I picked the new Coconi track - Jewels cause "Light up" got great comments last time.
This week we have a monster show talking all about HDRs using HDRsoft's Photomatix Pro. We see the different types of HDR algorithm and how they can be used to make images with very wide dynamic range out of multiple bracketed shots. We use Tone Compression and the Detail Enhancement mode.
