Trying something new

After recent success in adding some new types of images to my portfolio -- signing up two golf models, I attempted to take some of these images and isolate the golfers onto a white background thus furthering the diversification of my portfolio with existing images.

I studied many of the posted blogs on isolation techniques and although it sounds easy on first read, I quickly learned that patience and practice are necessary for quality results

The first submissions were rejected, however on the second try, two of the images were accepted and a third is waiting approval -- keeping my fingers crossed as the third image, a dog, which was very challenging in isolating the fine fur from the background.

First on my list of wants, after I reach my first payout -- getting a little closer every day -- is a graphics tablet. The time and effort to isolate these images with a mouse was excruciating!

Huge thanks to those that so willingly share their knowledge and expertise on this topic.

Your suggestions or comments are greatly welcome!

Cheers,

Marilyn
