Unusual background

Of all the categories design that our profession deals with most attracted me to design unusual, abstract background with a combination of multitudes of colors. Sauces and nuances that get playing with a palette of various patterns and combining them with light effects mapped my imagination to the screen.I love it when I come to creating a combination that delights me many times after the completion of the design going back to see it again and again and ....There is no heat and satisfaction that... continue reading

Star effect using natural density filter

Just want to share how I took this picture of the star effect of the sun.I used the 0.6 Natural Density Filter to get the said effect. To lower the brightness, I adjusted the EV value to underexposed the sky a little bit.The original copy had a bit of len flares, and had to clean it in the Photoshop. Alternatively you could cover the lens with your hands or cap to cast eliminate those flares, though.You could also use Star Filter to get the star effect, but thats the easy way out. ;)... continue reading

To make a silhouette

I like silhouette images very much. They look bright and well represent objects with clear contours and interesting shape.Silhouettes make the picture look more abstract. In case of shooting people, for ex. you can't identify who exactly is on the picture (and sometimes don't need a model release), but the meaning of the whole scene is absolutely clear.Same happens when you shoot nature, still life and architecture (if it's not a famous landmark) silhouettes. They don't show a particular... continue reading

Improving your English with DT

The result will be surprisingly cool!For the 1st... continue reading

Photo without post-processing

Have you ever submitted a photo for stock site without any modification? Without hard times spending with Photoshop or noise reduction software?Every time I push the button of my cam, I dreamed about that I can catch the moment, I can show, what I see at that moment. I'm not an artist, I hate to use hard Photoshop effects with urban, green or sepia actions. Maybe the problem I can't learn how I should use them. ;) I only use some levels modification, maybe brightness/contrast, hightlights and... continue reading
