    Cell phone pic photoshopped

    I try to take a lot of photo's now and then on my commute to work. This one's outside the local donut shop. Pic taken by Motorola Droid X, edited in Photoshop CS5. Many layers.

    Photoshop skills are a lot of fun and very useful. I used CS4 to drawn a set of blueprints for a home I'm planning. I got lots of compliments on the quality of the drawings from the architects and engineers I'm dealing with and it was quicker than learning a blueprint program. Here is my heavily edited PS image contribution...

    bsieb - it kind of looks like a Hopper painting. Is that the look you were going for?

    It is a very painterly look, and I'll accept the Hopper comparison with honor. I've been working in this style for quite a few years. This image is from a series called "New Paradigm", and all 12 images are of this same little downtown street. A couple more...

    Play with Photoshop, ignore the labels on the tools a bit, don't use plugins. I pretty much do the same things I would do if I were painting the scene... develop a tonal sketch, then start applying color. The difference being one medium is additive (photo) and the other subtractive (paint) but that's not huge. In an analog setting I would probably be doing a serigraph or hand coloring over a photo print. I did some very creative hand coloring over BW before digital image processing came on the scene and I see it as a continuation of that approach.

    Photoshop Elements is very good and much less expensive. It has the virtually same image editing tools as Photoshop. For less than the price of a good lens you can really improve the quality of your images, including working with RAW image files. Adobe also offers student versions and periodically has special offers, but it ain't free by a long shot.
