Creating the IR colour effect using photoshop

I recently posted about IR photography.After some searching on the net I found a tutorial that can create the Infrared colour photo effect using Photoshop.But it uses Channel Mixer, which Photoshop Elements 9 does not have.This technique doesn't produce the same effect that true IR does because apparently Photoshop can't recognise the areas that have different reflections.Still, if you have Photoshop CS5 this might give you something to use for fun or however you choose.I'm looking for... 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

I did learn it for 8 years at school, oneyear English lessons at the University (yes, I was quite lazy at school with learning English).Moreover I do work in an international company for nearly 20 years with many foreign colleagues - so English is in my daily use, at least the technical English.... continue reading
