  • Moody pictures, adding some drama

    by Summerrain | 15th of February, 2009

    Anything can be made into a moody picture. Even a bright summer day. It's of course easier if your picture already has some natural moody elements such as stormy skies, windy landscape, or impressive light. There's tons of ways to both enhance and create a moody scene in... More
  • What do you use as a white background?

    by Awizard | 12th of February, 2009

    I heard several versions: just any white floor, paper, or a piece of textile. In any case, there are pros and cons. Some of them I use personally. Floor: blinks can appear as a result of a lamp reflection. On the other hand, there will be no shadows caused by any creases.... More

    by Lieska | 15th of January, 2009

  • Using photoshop with care

    by Summerrain | 17th of December, 2008

    I know when I first got photoshop I was so excited to use it that many times I was guilty of using it a bit too heavily. While a lot of effects look new and awesome they don't always fit well with every picture. In many cases we want to preserve realism in our art, that is... More
