50th Party Poster – I’ve taken a stock image and superimposed a new face onto it. Getting the light and angel of the two images is crucial in making the composition believable. The text is typeset in Adobe Illustrator with a warp effect. See a more in-depth video on how this image was made below.
A Retouching experiment – In this project I’ve used the same techniques and effects, but in opposite ways. Left and right of the original I generate an older and a younger version of this wedding photo by using some advanced techniques in Photoshop.
Gas tank perspective/background combined with new product shot. Both images have qualities the client likes – The perspective and garden from an old photo and the current model (piping, grill) from the other. Supplied digital artwork was also added in place of shiny stickers.
1 of 130 – Sometimes a few filters will do. One of my clients was in the process of creating a coffee table book from a backlog of her folio. Her photos were great but she lacked the advanced skills to bring them to full potential. Basic enhancements like this make a real difference but may only take a few selective filters/masks and 10-15 minutes. Since the client also owned Photoshop and had an interest in the process, I provided the files with layers. This enabled her to see exactly what was done at each stage. It’s worth noting that I do offer training in many of the leading design programs including Photoshop.
