Dodge and Burn Confusion

Posted 12-05-2007 at 12:15 PM by cricket1961 (Chris Tarantino's Blog)

D+B works with shading not texture. There is a big difference. Yes it can work with texture, but I think that one of the reasons that people are confused with the way the technique works is because of the definition given.

D+B, or softlight retouching is used to preserve texture in ways that the stamp tool and /or the healing brush can not possibly achieve. Some will say that if you use the mentioned tools set to lighten or darken only it will achieve the same effect.

The Nodal Point - part 2

Posted 01-11-2008 at 09:36 PM by Frank Lopes (Panorama Mania)

In part one, I explained that many panorama photos never align regardless how careful you were shooting the sequence.

So, if the answer is to pivot the camera on the nodal point, the answer is simple, correct?

Well not quite...

The first problem is that, in reality, there are two nodal...

The Reality of Models and their Skin

Posted 03-26-2008 at 12:28 PM by cricket1961 (Chris Tarantino's Blog)

At my seminar in Vegas last January, a lot of the attendees sort of gasped really loud at the before shots of some of the images I have worked.

Loud and very audible from at least 50 feet away.

Quite amusing really and at the same time quite a eye opener for me. You see, most of the class were already involved with what they called "Hi End Beauty Retouching" or were Photographers in the industry. Their response took me by as much surprise s the images did...

Computer problems: spyware mainly

Posted 09-25-2010 at 03:10 PM by unimatrix001

I have been rather busy lately removing several spyware programs from computers. These people that i remove the spyware and viruses for, always ask me how they got it and if they can prevent it. I find it very hard to give them an answer they are happy with. Usually the first thing they say is i don't go to porn sites and i have up to date virus programs why do i still get these things. I then try to explain to them that most of these are (drive by downloads) you don't have to do anything to get...
