Without equivocation, caveat, or winking, what are you good at?

Re: What are you good at?

You're very stright, man Let's see what the people will confess...
Me, mostly old & broken stuff, I'm some kind of "Dr. mess" always must repair or make art from damaged pics. 99,9% of my clients seem to like what I'm doing and this is a great point for me, worths more than money. I'm also training more in the skin and textures retouch using the frequencies separations, this helps me sometimes even with the broken photos. I like a lot the free creative design but I have only few time for this.

I would say that I'm probably good at knowing what I need to work harder at... which is mostly everything! Thanks to sites like this, I am improving though

I'd say: (in no particular order)
gathering relevant information, Interacting with people, cutting a circle or straight line with a X-acto , liquifying/warping, reconstructing...

I need more and more practicing on Dodge and Burn and it will save my life

Re: What are you good at?

Communication in general (written, face-to-face, phone), 'reading people,' organization / planning / time management / setting priorities, organzing / leading meetings, project management, Internet research (Bing, Google aided), creativity, thinking outside the box, cost effective (lowest price, best shipping rates) internet shopping (including eBay), public speaking, developing / teaching classes, defensive driving, photography skills (in general), Photoshop (in general) and specificially just about anything related to Photoshop actions, using Excel for things like budgeting / financial planning and forecasting...

4personnen: Google "Tony Kuyper" for some very useful info on Luminosity masking theory/techniques. This enables one to utilize "mask controlled" D & B. Very helpful to me. Maybe for you too. Search RP on this topic too.

Hm. Relevant to the site, photo-manipulation (mostly for entertainment). Compositing; Repair, and to an extent, enhancement of images.

Elsewhere, writing, creative story-telling.

@Danny

I know Tony Kuyper but haven't had the will/time to explore everything about it... I miss the "vista" in those things, it requires me a tedious amount of work.
Thanks for that anyway...

Re: What are you good at?

Well I was very good at processing black and white film (both by hand a by machine) and spent years doing reproductions of continuous tone photographs using film.

Made the jump to digital which kind of sent 40 years of experience to the scrap heap.

Change happens!
