Since i am new here i just wanted to show some appreciation to this site and say few word of introduction about Muah!
Have been studying photoshop since photoshop 6.0. I am not a pro, but many say i should be >. i am just an enthusiast with a creative eye. below please find some of the images i worked on just as a way of practice and leisure. (yeah i photoshop just for the heck of it:> )
original: this was a very nice composition. but for the final result i thought it would be nice to recreate the underlying mood of the scene by adding some drama.
The end result speaks for itself. (everything is from scratch. took about 7 hours to complete)
The African American Model was once again a solo project that i thought can use some spark and youth. took about 15 mins to complete.
the other one. well, retouching is not all bout removing blemishes and making someone prettier than they really are. its could also be about making the environment complimenting to the individual. i think you can see the rest.
i would love to get some feedback.
