Nice gallery with some tuts

I found this page on flickr and fell in love with the still life photo's there and the technique used
The photographer has put a page of tuts there, which i am trying to crack ( they do look relatively simple ) by tutorial i mean there is a before and after with a shot of the layers palette, I get the impression there is a language barrier but here is a link to the page of tuts

http://www.flickr.com/photos/6099168...7594426579515/

and here is one for making a background ( i have done this one ) It is one of those why hadnt i thought of it before.

Take a look around see what you think, If you have a go at a tutorial let us know how you get on Post your results

and if you find some good textures to try put a link up in the library

Re: Nice gallery with some tuts

Thought i would show you my first attempt, i colorized a texture to pink set the blend mode to soft light and duplicated this layer, not too bad i think

I have added some photo's incase you wanted to have a try, I know they are nowhere near the same caliber but ok for messing around with ( i havent done levels etc, I cant do all the work )

Re: Nice gallery with some tuts

Palms, that is truly lovely!! Nice find with the tutorials -- the artist does some nice work.

Thanks for giving us some of your work to play with -- you're always very generous.

I have been "meaning" to do some still life camera work, but haven't -- hopefully this will inspire me to do some and then to have fun with something new in Photoshop.

IT is fun doing some still life even badly, i never think of light etc, and my sheets double up as back drops and my settee is my stage I then spend time pithering around with the flowers etc, but that is what is brilliant about digital, take as many as you want and delete the rest. Down side is there's another hour or two gone.
And i have no problem sharing, it is more that i foist my photo's onto members, In the end it is free practice for us all

Impressive stuff. Thanks for sharing the link. That person has talent. Will have to study these in more detail and give it a shot. Downloaded those textures - they might come in handy.

Re: Nice gallery with some tuts

ratz and dmrdm glad you like it, quite a bit of inspiration there, as you say some studying to be done and well as envy of the actual images, and yes them textures look handy ( didnt find them at first though)
ratz one thing i like about shooting photo's of flowers is they dont move around
