Well, I just upgraded from Photoshop Elements to Photoshop (CS5) because it was half price. I used it years ago, but I was shooting only film then and found it a bit overwhelming. I was also kind of a “purist” in those days and thought it was “cheating” to use an editing program. I know, silly.
On to Photoshop. I did the following project in just a few minutes with a Photshop preset, except for the last image.
A so-so shot of an old house in Middleburg, Va.
I switched up the color, but still wasn’t satisfied.
I’m kind of likin’ these crazy colors.
Finally, I added some Kim Klassen and Johnna Riddell textures for a more vintage look. I did all of this in Elements before getting Photoshop. I’m not crazy about the PSE cropping, but I can live with it.
Tomorrow, some prose. I’ve had some thoughts bombarding me lately, and had to write them down before my head exploded. See you then.
