Some more (random) thoughts on last weeks talk …

Soup or Souffle ??

 The recipe:

You will need: – A decent starting photo – An idea – A collection of “stock” items from your back catalogue – A few “stock” texture type layers. – Photoshop (or similar layer-capable software)

 1. Crop (or extend) to isolate the interesting part of the picture.

2. Add an element from “stock” to give a 3 points of interest, preferably arranged in a triangle around the frame

3. Add a texture layer on top and paint through the important parts of the picture.

4. Dodge / burn / contrast / colour to taste

5. Present in an appropriate frame
