Pop Art styles

I did a series of Pop Art style photos for a magazine, some are posted here:

http://www.pressbookpro.com/homebook...41&langue_id=2

For the Warhol style I found it useful to work seperately on the colour & luminosity, initially with LAB mode, but then using layers & blending modes in RGB. Finally, images the images tended to look too pure, so I introduced noise, posterization & textures, though some of that doesn't really show up on web sized graphics...

You do some fine work. Your site is an inspiration for anyone aspiring to be creative.

Your Warhol example is among the best I've seen. Appreciate the words of advice on coloring.

Thanks!

Danny, Thanks for your kind words.

I have to admit I've always been interested by the way computers can blur the distiction between photography & other graphic arts, but rarely get to fully explore it in my work.

When I first looked at a LAB image (it was a face) & switched off the L channel I was struck by how the simple blocks of colour had a 'pop art' look to them. On & off I've played around with ways of exploiting that. The Pop Art shoot was a lucky chance to try out some of the techniques I'd be playing with for years.

(Incidentally, the pool pictures were much older, and based on the look of David Hockney's work - but I thought they fitted the Pop Art theme of that book).

William.

Thanks

Danny, thanks for the help. In answer to your question, I am retired and have no comercial desires. Although, it might be nice to make enough to pay for some materials.

I'm retired too... ain't it great to be able to play with this sort of thing?

OK... For prints 8"x10" or smaller the smart blur and poster edges method you're using should hold up fairly well. If you were going to make "big prints" (for wall posters or the like), the poster edges effect might come out looking pretty ragged.

Continued success as you experiment and explore.

melissa clifton warhol tutorial link

This is good Photoshop tutorial.

http://www.melissaclifton.com/tutorial-warholphoto.html

She uses the Pen tool to make her selections, which newbies will find difficult. (Google: photoshop pen tool tutorial for help in this regard or give Melissa's tutorial a go, http://www.melissaclifton.com/tutorial-pentool.html)

It makes no difference what selection method one uses, so make it easy on yourself: use the method that is easiest for you.

Check out this tutorial, too:

Found this at Planet Photoshop:

Depending on the subject image it may be necessary to create multiple layers using the Channel Mixer/Stamp filter steps, then combine "the best of" each layer using layer masks.
