Go for it - Photoshop BrushesPrevious Go for it articles: Go for it - Photoshop Tutorials Go for it - Photoshop ActionsHello guys! How are you?This "Go for it" Article is about Photoshop Brushes.Many of us use brushes to enhance our works result. Whether they are drawings, vectors, paintings, manipulations, photographies, etc., the truth is that brushes are many times a life savior and, they help us achieve great effects in an great and easy way.What are brushes?Quoting my own Tutorial, "Brushes can be compared to stamps that we use in Photoshop (or in other program like Paint Shop Pro, Illustrator, Corel PhotoPaint, etc.). The main puropse is to add extra effect or details into your digital work".I've created 2 Tutorials exlaining how to instal & apply Photoshop Brushes and, also how to create your own Photoshop Brushes. If you find them useful, please download t
On Unknown ArtistsThis article was originally inspired by a discussion with Alavesa and posted in a journal here but people told me I should make it a news article So here's a revised (hopefully improved) version. Any updates and additions will be posted there.Tip for unknown artistsFirst, this is something I find many just don't realise... Did you know that you're way more likely to meet new friends and getting your work noticed if you interact with unknown artists, instead of only watching already popular ones? Unknown artists will appreciate any feedback you leave them a lot more (be it a critique, a fave etc.), and often will keep talking to you and return the favour, while to many popular artists, you may be just another drop in the sea.Remember, the amounts of exposure you get doesn't just depend on the quality of your work you'll have to get some people to look in the first pla
Cosplay Photography GuideA cosplay photography introductory lesson of sorts, for the growing number of cosplay enthusiasts in the deviantART community.An illustrated outline of things to consider for photoshoots, also identifying the differentiating factors of cosplay photography as compared to more classical portraiture.[http://behindinfinity.deviantart.com/journal/16401555/]
Macro Photography - Detail not Visible to the EyeMacro Photography - Show the Detail not Visible to the EyeApproaching macro photography for the first time can be full of ugliness especially if your first attempts fail badly. Many beginners discover the Depth of Field (DoF) is very small, images are out of focus because the focus is critical in macro photography with the small DoF, Camera shake and subject movement (due to using longer shutter speeds to allow for small apertures and/or not using a sturdy tripod), increased noise (if you use a higher ISO to compensate for the small apertures needed), or badly composed photos. And this can get frustrating.(the following was already covered in my first article Welcome to theWorld of Macro but here is a reminder)Macro Photography requires special equipment which can get expensive, but so what we photographers like to spend money on equipment. Without some form of macro equipment you will not be able to
C O M P O S I T I O N - simple guidelinesAfter reading some photography books such as Petersens Big Book of Photography, 2009; Learning to See Creatively, 2003; and many other books, local magazine, and international magazine lately, desire has been filled my heart to share something here. COMPOSITION Its all about C O M P O S I T I O N, why? Simply because composition has been the most important things in art. Every painting, drawing, and even music needs a nice composition within them to be enjoyed by people. And since photography is an art, I can say that composition is its soul. Do you agree with me?The thing now is composition comes from our heart combined with our mind. It is almost impossible to formulate it. You can learn it from your own experience or others experiences, but there isnt stick rules to it. Arts never have any rules. Thats why I called this guidelines, not rules, of composition. Just to make it easier for all who want to start their ph

DAM your photosNo disrespect intended...Digital Asset Management (DAM)is a tool you should learn about.I want to present two basic ideas, in 3 simple steps (and tips), to help you manage your photography work better. The first is managing you work on you computer (organizing it), and the second is the keywords and tags you add to it when submitting your work on-line.A few words of introduction first. If you are a starting photographer, this is very important for you. The experienced ones will find it hard to Re-manage all the work they have done, and they probably have a system they work with (working, or not). However, if you are starting now to accumulate your photographs and submitting it on-line, this is essential for you, and easier to do.Shell we begin?1. Managing your photographsThis simple method is based on dates and places. The steps are all centered on creating a folder structure organized around the dates and places you took the pictures on.This organization method is based on date
He Took a Polaroid Every Day Until the Day He DiedHonestly this is one of the most amazing things that I think I have ever seen, and he even captured his own death essentially. Make sure you read the commentary, especially down below after the images, which gives the reader a LOT of insight into things. Without question, one of the most dramatic photographic things I believe I have ever seen.[http://www.mentalfloss.com/blogs//archives/15131]
