The following Photoshop Tutorial Was submitted by Digital Photography School Forum member Ian Potter (henryscat). Please Note: For the purposes of this tutorial I am going to assume that you understand the basics of Photoshop (opening files etc).
The secret is just to take your time during the painting process and be careful around the edges.
You can also do this in Lightroom with the local adjustment brush where you set the saturation to 0 and start desaturating everything except what you want to keep in color. I am trying to do the above exercise but my History Brush and Art History Brush keep painting ORANGE all over everything. Wow-Amazing Blog- Wow -Thanks for all the great information and i love the pictures, thanks for sharing this blog. Does anybody know if there's a way to achieve this effect suitable for 2-color (black + 1 PMS) offset printing? Although I do not use this technique heavily in my wedding photography, it comes useful if you use double layer mask to do some slight desaturation. It’s a type of photography that has the potential to continually knock on your creativity prowess as you can think of a million things to do with it. If you want to learn various types of trick photography, then I suggest you check out the e-book called Trick Photography and Special Effects by Evan Sharboneau. We share awesome tips on photography, updates about our photography workshops and events, breath-taking shots and so much more on our Facebook page. Drawing anime may appear difficult at first, but there are different techniques making the character drawing an easy and fun game. The nose is signed with a small vertical line in the middle, or with two little dots around the axis. If you want to continue and draw the whole body, make sure it is proportionate to the head. Make sure your males are angular with more straight lines, while females are thinner, with defined waist and more curves.
When you are done practicing feeling confident enough to draw new characters and poses, try drawing a profile or a semi-profile portrait of a character. Let our professional photographers show you the tricks of the trade you'll need to capture incredible portrait and landscape images. I’ve seen many articles on the web explaining the basics of digitising film negatives or transparencies with a digital camera. Very precise control over colours, highlight and shadow curves, while making use of the vast film dynamic range. All the following instructions have the objective of achieving the best possible resolution, colour depth and dynamic range out of the film, while keeping image noise as low as possible. Again, ideally you should either use a macro tube with a prime lens or a macro lens, but if you don’t have any of these, your kit lens will also do the job, with a bit of loss in usable resolution, due to cropping. The basic idea is pretty simple, you need a diffused, homogeneous light source, a way to hold your film, and a digital camera focused on the film.
What you need is to pick the sharpest lens you’ve got, and make it focus close enough so that the picture in the film, fills up the camera sensor as much as possible. After making sure that the camera is focusing precisely on the film, you must keep everything stable enough not to bump into some of the parts during scanning. Set the white balance to the warmest possible colour (such as incandescent or candle lighting), for colour negative film. I usually place the flash at about 30cm away from the film and make it shoot through a cardboard box so that the light doesn’t splash all over the room and cause unwanted reflections on the film.
This process is pretty much straightforward, once you’ve set up everything correctly, you just shoot, slide the film to the next frame and shoot again. You may use any RAW development tool such as Lightroom, Aperture, Camera RAW or Capture One.
The first two steps affect all the images in the same way, so we start by selecting all images. While keeping every image selected, the next step is to invert the colours, to get a positive image.
You can now select a single image at a time and as a starting point, use the auto white balance tool to get a good approximation of the original colour. This is perhaps the most interesting and creative part of the post-processing as it lets you capture all the awesome dynamic range of film, with a great level of control over the tone, highlight and shadow curves.
You can now increase the contrast at will by adding points in the middle, looking at how the curve affects your image. You may notice that even after moving the temperature slider all the way towards the blue end, I still get a blue tint.
As you can see, the greenish blue tint is gone because I’ve moved both G and B curves down.
This process takes some time (although you’ll get quicker with experience, and it definitely takes more time explaining than doing) and it’s probably the one where you will loose the most part of the whole process but for me, it’s also the most creative and rewarding step! After this you may want to use the Spot Removal tool to remove blemishes, dirt or scratches and then select all the images and hit “Save Images…”.
About the author: Paulo Ricca is a photography enthusiast and computer science PhD candidate based in London. I can create a contact sheet by placing a sheet of negatives on the light table then process as you suggest. The folks at National Geographic just did a solid favor for all the adventurous outdoor photographers out there. Yesterday I spent my morning taking some photos in New York City along the Hudson river with my 4x5 camera.
VSCO today announced the launch of its new Open Studio, a free-to-use massive studio space in New York City. After a lot of speculation and a juicy tidbit here and there, a more complete spec list and first photo of the much-anticipated Canon 5D Mark IV has leaked. Want to see how a Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer responds to a request for free images in exchange for "credit" from a major news corporation? The multi-aperture computational camera is an exciting technology that's emerging in the world of photography, and it appears that Nikon wants in.
Recently I got a message from a person who said that they liked my pictures, but unfortunately they don’t have a "photographic eye." This inspired me to write the following article about basic aesthetics and their relationship to photography.
Photographing a meteor shower is more like photographing a time-lapse than traditional still photos. Former Russian Olympic swimmer Evgeny Korotyshkin usually reserves his Instagram for posting pictures of swimming events or selfies with his medals. After reading so many stories about inconsiderate people putting animals' lives in danger (or outright killing them) to get a "cool" selfie, this story was like a deep breath of fresh air. A new iOS app from design studio Maybe It’s the Lightening, simply titled Stilla, works with one simple premise: every photo has a second photo -- or third or fourth -- that your camera missed.


Even for the most seasoned photographers, understanding the value of a photo editor can be fleeting. Lightroom is a very powerful tool, and this quick timelapse by filmmaker and photographer Bart Oerbekke demonstrates how a series of simple edits were able to really bring one of his landscape photos to life. This photo shows what Sports Illustrated photographer Simon Bruty packed for the Rio 2016 Olympic games, the 8th Summer Games he has covered. This should be a colour image that will make an impact in mono, and has an area of colour you wish to bring back to the photograph (please see examples above). Then make your brush size around 10 – 11 px using the palette located just under the file menu bar (2b). Remember and lift off now and then so you can undo any mistakes without having to start again. Use any size of brush (and indeed, more than one size) for each job that you are comfortable with. I currently use two layers (one colour, one mono) and erase the mono layer on the item I want in colour. Hmm this just alter the RGb or other colours and just displays the desired colour making the backround black and white doesnt it? You can not desaturate the picture and apply the paint brush because all the color has been desaturated.
These methods work fine for images to be viewed on screen, or even printed out in a regular color printer, but for commercial printing purposes, this method would require a regular 4-color print job (since the underlying layer is the original full-color photo).
When i try to use the history brush it tells me the canvas size does not match the history state. It refers to a kind of photography where you make it look like that people or objects are flying or floating in the air. In case you are learning digital photography, you can buy my e-book – Photography for Beginners (E-book With Videos): The Easiest Way to Learn DSLR Photography From the Comfort of Your Home which is a comprehensive and step-by-step guide that teaches you the basics of photography. You will, of course, need to have basic talent, but mostly this is the matter of will and practice, and your imaginative characters will soon start developing into different anime princesses and heroes. Then add a vertical and a horizontal line dividing the head into equal fragments using a ruler. Keep the jawline angular if you want a male character and a little more pointy and soft if you want a female character.
You can perfect it by shading around eyes, nose and mouth, but this will come slowly with practice. Welcome and introductionAn overview of what you’ll find on your EOS Adventure Portrait & Landscape Photography DVD. Photography basicsA quick practical guide to understanding your Canon DSLR and the basics of successful photography. The art of landscape photographyOur professional photographers on location in the Lake District and South Africa provide expert advice on lenses, light, exposure and composition. Secrets of successful portraitureProfessional portrait photographer Heather Buckley shows you how to get the most from your Canon camera when taking a range of portrait styles. After the shotThere’s a whole host of effects and improvements you can achieve after you’ve taken your shot. Things to try nowOur experts talk about their favourite images and give you inspiring ideas to go out and try using the techniques set out in the previous chapters. The basics are quite simple: you take a photo of a negative into a light source and invert. Also, when you scan, you make some artistic decisions over contrast and colour that are often definitive. Even if I did, good film scanners cost a fortune and I get better quality from scanning the film with my DSLR than I would if I used an average scanner. Some people do this because it’s faster than using a scanner, but that depends on how much time you spend post-processing, and I do spend a bit more than I would like to admit, but it is a time spent doing something that gives me pleasure, not pressing buttons on a poorly designed software and waiting for a tedious scan. You could set up your flash as slave and trigger it with the in-camera flash but you would have to do it in a way that it wouldn’t get any light reflecting off the film surface, which may be a bit hard. Because you’ll be focusing at a very close distance, the depth of field will be very narrow, so focusing precisely and keeping the distance between the film and the camera exactly the same throughout the scanning. The combination of equipment that works best for me is a 35mm 1.8G Nikon lens with a small 20mm macro extension tube. This makes sure that the camera won’t try to change focus every time you take a picture.
Some cameras let you manually configure the light temperature so push it all the way to the warm side. Most lenses have their sharpest aperture at around f8 and we do want the sharpest possible image, don’t we?
I have also cut a small hole in the cardboard box and place a lamp above it to have some light shine through the negative and make my life easier when focusing.
Just make sure you have put the film in the right way and not inverted, as it will make your life easier later on.
The way I do it is to set my camera to show the pictures on “Highlights” mode, which makes it obvious when I’m making a mistake. I usually use Adobe Camera RAW (the RAW development tool that pops-up when you open RAW files on Photoshop) and occasionally Capture One when I just can’t reach the desired colour in Camera RAW, such as with underwater shots (Capture One has wider envelopes for white balance values, for some reason).
This can be done going to the Point tab of the Tone Curve Settings in Lightroom and moving the left point of the curve to the upper left corner and the right point to the lower right corner.
I won’t be able to correct for all the blue excess at this stage because Lightroom trims the white balance envelopes, but we can correct that afterwards in the curves panel, as you can see on the next step. Because we have inverted the colours, the left end of the curves represents the highlights and the left, the shadows. In this case I was mainly looking at the skin tones and how the parts in the shadows develop into sun lit highlights (which is one of the good things about shooting film, if this shot was taken with a digital camera, the highlights would probably either be blown out or have a bad-looking yellow tint). This can be corrected by changing the curves on the different Red, Green and Blue channels.
After that I also noticed the image had a slight undesirable red shadow but overall it could use a warmer tone so I added one point in the lower half of the R channel and moved it below the diagonal, and another in the upper half and moved it a bit upwards.
It’s also a good idea to select sRGB instead of the default Adobe RGB colour space by clicking those blue parameters on the bottom of the window. They put every US Geological Survey (USGS) topographical map from across the United States on one easy-to-navigate site and made them easy to print out at home. Louis Post-Dispatch who won the Pulitzer Prize with his paper this year for his coverage of protests in Ferguson, Missouri. But when he was robbed at gunpoint yesterday in Rio, he posted a very different photo: a picture of the gun-wielding teens who allegedly robbed him. Watch as a Polish nature photographer risks his own safety to save a young eagle stuck in the coastal mud. For every picture of your friend on the boat, there's a beautiful sky and a glorious reflection of that sky in the water that you missed.


Photojournalists regularly work with photo editors, but the average photographer relies on their own eyes to edit even in situations where an editor could add value (e.g.
A 60TB drive would be massive by any standard, but the latest Seagate SAS drive is mind-blowing for one other very important reason: it's a solid state drive. Photographer Aaron Anderson has put together a lighting tutorial that will show you how he uses one light, a black flag, and a white card to capture beautiful, dramatic headshots.
Instead, the mission can be accomplished by simply applying the adjustment brush in "Develop" mode, with the "saturation" reduced to -100, on the area you would like to be b&w.
Even if the original layer were converted to a monotone image and the other image were grayscale, would the colors separate correctly on a press?
I'm using a knock off photoshop editing tool and have been avoiding photoshop for 2 years now. Personally, I like to use it with a bride holding flowers, or at an outdoor wedding with the petals on the ground in color. The part of the spectrum used is referred to as near-infrared to distinguish it from far-infrared, which is the domain of thermal imaging. So after you’ve completed the set-up, focus on some part of the book, and half press the shutter button to lock the focus.
It should look like the shot below. Remember, the camera should not move as we want the same area in the frame.
Make sure your pencil pressure is light as you sketch, you will thicken the contours later. Make sure the dark parts are darkened and the light parts and sparkling sections of eyes are left white.
This is where you can play the most, as hair does not follow the line of the head, but goes above and around it in different ways. When you master the basics, you will be able to let your imagination conjure up any type of anime drawings you have ever wanted to create.
And, once you've got the shot, learn how to use Canon's Digital Photo Professional software. This chapter shows you some of the great things you can do with Digital Photo Professional software, which comes with your Canon camera.
Right now I can get higher resolution and better image quality that what street labs give you on CD. By leaving these decisions to a machine or someone else, you are losing control over your creative freedom.
I think each time I’ve made a scan I’ve got better results than the time before, because I keep improving the process and now I’ve got to a stage I’m quite happy with the results. In order to achieve this, several people developed different techniques, such as using a shoe box, simply a tripod and a glass table, or even a tube made from toilet paper rolls.
This is because colour negatives have a brown film backing, so we want to neutralize it’s colour as much as possible. The screenshots were taken from Adobe Camera RAW but you can do pretty much everything I explain here with any other package.
In Capture One I do this by going to the Exposure Tab and under Levels, and moving the lower left point to the right and the lower right point to the left. You can look at the histogram to check where each of these ends begins, and move the end points closer this image envelope, but not too close to the limits. In the end I made slight adjustments to the RGB channel to accommodate the colour changes I’ve made. Adobe RGB (or aRGB) was supposed to cover a broader colour space but due to poor implementations, it brings some problems when printing or showing the image on the web. I had one sheet of film left, and I noticed that some nice-looking clouds were developing over the Hudson.
Last Friday, Carson was contacted by what appears to be a CBS account on Twitter that regularly Tweets requests for image usage. And if you happen to live in the city of Pune, then do check out our photography workshops that take place at J.M Road almost every weekend. Packed full of features it allows you to edit and organise your images so they look the best they possibly can.
I have tried variations of these in the past and ended up developing my own film holder using laser cutted mdf (schematics for hand or laser cutting can be found on thingiverse, with instruction of how to build it).
So what I do is to keep the flash at its highest strength as long as it doesn’t blow out the highlights and when it does, lower it by a stop or two, and then raise it again for the next picture. You may try several different points until you find one that more closely matches the correct colour. Notice that inside the channels, the curve is not inverted, so the darker end is on the left side and the brighter, on the right.
I’ve designed this because it allows me to setup and scan a whole roll very very quickly, with very high precision! So, in this example, to achieve the image on the top, I moved the left end of the blue and green channels a bit to the right and added one or two middle points in each channels to control the middle of the curve.
Here in this showcase, we presenting a Stunning collection of Infrared Photography and Pictures taken by various artists in which all pictures are linked to the author’s pages. The instructions below are broadly independently of which type of film holder you are using. Just remember that because you have inverted the curves, the slides now work in the opposite way, so if you think the image is too blue, move the slider towards the temperature slider towards the blue end. At the first glance, a monochrome picture taken in infrared may look similar to just another black and white photograph. What is The Difference?The infrared spectrum of light lies just beyond what we can see as humans.
While capturing this invisible light has been possible for years, the process has been steeped in tedium, expense and unpredictable results. Because of these reasons, many photographers have only dipped their toes in this beautiful medium, or avoided it altogether. The digital photography revolution has rendered this unique art form much more accessible, and simpler, than in the analog photography days. Just look at the difference in following photo.Also there are some famous myths about infrared photography exists since it was discovered.
We designers, can derive inspiration from almost everything around, and this collection can fulfills your various photography inspiration related needs as the creativity in shooting photos is somewhat hot trend now days.
