See?
Thats why a description should not be overdone.

I said that your way to do the glow effect is different and better than the ones found in thousand of websites. You do something with those sliders in the Layers Propierties and other things I've never seen before. The typical glow effect found around the Internet are those where you dup, blur, set to overlay and opacity 50% and that way looks quite horrible, but the way you do it is totally different. Doesn't matter what people like or not, it's the way you do it. You achieve a better looking glow effect with a totally different method, that was what I meant.

Btw, I don't see the relation between the glow effect, people likes and dislikes and the description of the DVD.

Re: I share my photoshop techniques

Well, I know quite a bit about lighting (I teach it) but I dare say that Calvin would find a way to teach me something I didn't already know or a more creative use of something I already do. This brings up a interesting subject (to me at least)...

Calvin, would you mind to talk briefly about the equipment you use in your day to day work? Brands you prefer and such? I know it s not the tool but how you use it, however, I find it amazingly interesting to see what goes into a person's kit.

And finally, I second the vote for a studio tour!

Re: I share my photoshop techniques

Hi All
Its very hard to tell here something about my lightning.
Cause it depends on the job.
Sometimes i shoot in studio with 8 lights, sometimes outdoor with 3 strobes.

You can find many many videos on youtube (like Q told you) where you can see the settings.

Sorry i cant tell you more, it depents on the picture

lg calvin
