Newbie Hello from Maryland

I'm a long time photographer with no ambitions of being professional, attempting to sell or even show.

I was working at a book by Scott Nightngale on Blend Modes and saw that it was marked Beginner-Intermediate. According to my understanding of that book, I am somewhere below Beginner.

That being said, I have a website Lewlortonphoto.com and I want to make my photos look better, perhaps even good.

Lew

Re: Hello from Maryland

Lew, you've got some great work on your website! Only the brave do street photography ;-)

As for blending modes, they're really easy to work with. Check out my Flypaper tutorial here for an example of using texture overlays on images via blending modes.

Re: Hello from Maryland

Thanks for the hello, altho it does seem like a marketing hello.
I tried to get to the buy page and the site timed out twice.

Re: Hello from Maryland

The Flypaper example was the first one I thought of as they are the ones I use on my own stuff; you can do this technique with any texture or image.

I see what you mean about the link (I will contact them to see what's going on).

Re: Hello from Maryland

The developer just wrote and said they are seeing the slowness too, so maybe it will resolve soon.
