Digital photography, the words alone get me charged up,
as to me it means pushing boundaries. While software like photoshop is
no longer owner by the elite graphic designers and artists, it has
found it way into the hands of the ever ready snapper. bringing with
it... the good, the bad and sadly...the ugly! In
my little time on the block, boy, have I seen alot, some work simply
gets the thumbs up and you just have to stand up and applaud, these
guys are simply too much. others, sadly, you want to stand up, but for
other reasons ;-)
If you ask me, the best photoshop work is
when you know it's been done but you still don't "know" it's been done!
Simply put, it dosen't overpower the subject matter.
get me wrong I love photoshop, this year alone, i've bought around 8
books already, and I have a solid collection as well. In my day job, I
use it on the daily.
But the digital "Applied" photographic
field, at the moment, is kind of like the Wild, Wild, West ... Many
Cowboys with guns that can't shoot straight!
Guess what... there's a new sheriff in town....watch out!
A really good resouce for learning photoshop is the Photoshoptv website, you can subscribe and download videocasts straight to your computer, mac or pc, using itunes ( A free download from apple)
Forever blowing ...
