  • A BROADER OPINION

    Hi, Tish, look through my portfolio and you will see that I too am a great fan of .....That Look.

    It certainly works for that kind of rugged character......not done to flatter them, but to give an edge to a superb mono study.

    I really hope that you get going fully again soon.

    This is a real coincidence...look on page 4 of my portfolio for a pic entitled.....Woodland Nymph......it appears that we have the same kind of creative eye.

    From another Photographer/Painter.....a wonderful example of excellent observation, drawing and painting skills.

    Well done you.....for me , Art has been with me all of my life I donít remember not drawing or painting....whereas Photography came very late in my life, for two reasons...I could never afford film and processing, I just took the odd snap.
    Then digital photography coincided beautifully with my retirement, all I do in that field has been self taught and by belonging to excellent forums like this one.

    Both hobbies, of course, have the same basic rules of ...Tone, Colour, texture, Line and Composition.....

    Great to learn of others who really enjoy both hobbies.

  • The Roadsweeper

    This really works for me because I know from the experience of trying that to make something from anyone wearing fluorescent safety-wear is a very real challenge.
    We have a regular street cleaner in our small town, he beavers away most days leaving the main areas clean and tidy, only to return to begin again.
    He has been taken into the heart of the community and has been asked to cut the ribbon at various local events and is seen regularly at most.

  • Summerhouse

    I am enjoying this latest series of yours.....have you been to the....Avoncroft Museum of Buidings close to Bromsgrove?

    If not, it would keep you and your camera happy for hours....a whole day is required ..... summer weekends are good if you want lots activity and working workshops, the place springs to life .....or midweek for quiet times.

    Leo, you seem to have an unstoppable creative mind like mine....never without a subject to explore and to photograph or paint.

    This is a mind-puzzling delight.

    I bet a nice hot shower room is better than being out in the weather Moscow is currently receiving?

  • KEEP ME POSTED


    Quote:I've never used the brushes with NIK either, so I'll look for videos and have a look-see. Smile


    The video is called....Adding Texture in Photoshop......by MARTIN Henso.....he offers circ 4 ways of adding texture....the third? Demo is when he uses the Nik Efex plugin......

    This was my Euraka moment.....I never even knew that Nikís Brushes worked like that on layers....

    Remember it isnít only Texture that can be targeted.....it can be almost ANY alteration chosen.....it will appear only where brushed on.....

  • Saffron is my colour.........

    There incredible fabrics and dyes to be found in India Sawsengee ...... I feel that you have a never ending source of inspiration very close.

    Please keep them coming....it might even encourage me to approach one of our turban-wearing Sihks to pose for me one day.

  • In the light

    A good one Deaville...... I like it a lot.......great contrast, good eye contact, perhaps a little too bright and a tad over-sharpened. It is good to see you moving forward.

    Hope you donít mind this feedback?

  • Shaun

    Yes! That really works....for me it might require a little more contrast....thank you for converting it.

    I use ....Contrast Grading....as taught by Martin Henson....It is worth Googling his name if you are keen on mono conversions.
