Too many permutations

Posted 11-08-2009 at 06:03 AM by Nasturtium

Yesterday I listened to two great Podcasts from here;


One was with Fay Sirkis and the other with Katrin Eismann. And in a way they said the same thing. That the more traditional art (painting/photography) you know the better your Photoshop work will be.

I've learned so much lately that I'm fairly paralyzed with all the different ways to achieve the same effect. Which probably means I'm doing way too much in ACR, LAB, Photoshop adjustments layers, filters & Plug-Ins I guess that is just part of the learning process.

I'm really proud of the details that I pulled out of this old capture;

    the podcasts are more about workflow not technique.

    Do you want a blow by blow on how I processed the tree? I used SkiLove73's 'bring out the details' method in the Official 'the Look' thread. For the color changes I used a combination of things I've learned about ACR and LAB over the last year. HTH
