Take a look though my "Never Stop Learning" weekly posts & more. You'll be able to see me try out techniques that are new to me, keep my chops up on techniques I've learned through the years, and talk about adjustments I'm making to my workflow to become more efficient/proficient with the Adobe Creative Suite, major focus on Photoshop and Illustrator.
Whenever I show the homie Kyle some of my projects, his first question is “Did you dodge and burn this?” I would always answer “No” but then I started wondering what Dodging and Burning was =D
Now I know… and knowing is half the battle!
Musical Beard- Started in Camera RAW, brought into Photoshop CS5 for Highpass Sharpening and a lot of dodging and burning.
Time to open my Adobe Photoshop world and get a pressure sensitive tablet into my workflow. I recently bought a Wacom Intuos4 and this is me trying to get a feel for it using CS6:
First attempt at the tablet. I filled in the back with black bristle brush strokes and brought in some areas of color to finally mix it all up. Just a chance to play with different values focusing on bristle brushes.
I was Tweeting all week how mad I was that NOBODY told me how AWESOME Camera Raw 7 for Adobe Photoshop CS6 was =D I also checked out CR 6.1. Very powerful tool but MAN did they step it up for 7:
First concentrated attempt as making… SOMETHING cool. I focused on the Histogram, alerts on and all, up to a point where I thought I had great color and temp. Then I turned those off and Bleaked it out using the Adjustment Brush with multiple pins.
