"Brown girl 2"... More Lessons!
In many ways I mix the old with the new!
I'm too "New" to be
called "Old school" and at the same time I embrace fully, the golden
concepts of yesterdays masters of the art.
"Skeetown...yup! that's were I belong"
And what's that or where is that you might ask?
Skeetown, firstly is not a place, it's rather a state of creative freedom, in layman's terms... it's my chill out zone :-D
Yesterday's shot! boy! Alot of reactions and comments, I was even
likened to a "Genius", how nice, but humbly, I cannot accept that
title, I've still got a long long way to go. Thanks anyway :-D
I put this one up today, because I knew that today I needed to go one better!
The lovely brown tones were achieved through CS2 using the curve tools,
the image captured in RAW format and processed and cropped with C1pro,
I almost never use adobe s/w to process my RAW files, as I don't
believe they have yet got this end completely sown up at the moment.
Apart from that, my work lies heavily on the basic light and shade
principles and tight compositions. I guess being an artist and graphic
designer helps as well, just alittle anyway :-D
me is just a tool, yes I use it, but I don't take a shot and aim to use
photoshop to correct it, to enhance yes but never to over power.
