  • Background isolation color

    by Dcwcreations | 4th of February, 2008

    It's a good idea to have some objects isolated in our portfolios. That being said some times when we want to isolate an object that by nature is already white it does not make sense to use a white background. The main reason to isolate is so it can be removed and... More

    by Charlesoutcalt | 23rd of January, 2008

    I don't know about anyone else, but isolating images is one of my least favorite tasks in Photoshop. I see that there was a blog on this topic in late December, but that was focused on shooting within a lightbox, or in other conditions that you can manipulate. Lots of... More

  • Rainy day backgrounds

    by Dcwcreations | 18th of October, 2007

    We have had some rainy weather for several days in a row. This really cuts down on the outside photo's other than the rainy shots. But it does open up the opportunity to take some indoor shots. Backgrounds are as open a category as your imagination. Colors, shapes,... More
