spotlight on beauty

gosh. my head is spinning with learning - dipping back into sebastian michaels' photo artistry after a long break from it, and following the phlearn free photoshop course recommended by northy among others, and matt k's fresh start 2020. so much to know and try and do! so this is more faffing with edges, and some curves layer warming, on an image of old man's beard taken last week - bokeh courtesy of car headlights coming down the hill
Pretty!!

Interesting processing. I like how you created the bokeh by using the car headlights :)

Beautiful. I love the colours and tones. It's very calming, looking at this.

Such a cool image, made even more so after reading your narrative.

A wonderful image and gorgeous tones.

Great shot and edit.

Lovely shot and edit! Fabulous faffing

Beautiful! I know what you mean about the courses. I think I try too many and then do’t take time to practice the techniques. Matt k did get me started on writing down a list of courses and subscriptions I have - a work in progress. Also my hard drive is full again so I need to delete and organize.

you are going to be some kind of editing wizard by the end of all this. In fact, I think you already are. Curves layer warming? Whatever, it seems to be producing the results. Maybe we need before and after photos to truly appreciate what you are achieving.

good for you if you can keep it all in order lol! so many techniques too little time!

Whatever you're learning..it's certainly working...what course is this you're talking about???

Wow my hat is off to you — Sebastian and phlearn are amazing ... I just wish I understood ps better.... you’ve inspired me to try again - during puppy nap time lol —- so well done

A wonderful composite. You're clearly learning so much and applying it so well.

@granagringa @samae thank you! it's several courses, and the first two are free:

this is phlearn's 30 days of photoshop - starting from the beginning and teaching the basics, and some quite advanced stuff - as recommended by @northy


https://mattk.com/freshstart/
this is matt klowskowski's fresh start in 2020, to give your phojo an injection ;)


and finally, i purchased sebastian michaels' photo artistry course a while back and i dip in and out ... all manner of fascinating stuff for creating art with photoshop

hope you might find some of that useful!

@jernst1779 thank you - i have also got started on organising, but not very far, as i'd much rather faff about in photoshop ;)
