Photoshop Tutorial – Postprocessing The Deadvlei

9 12 2011

Here’s a real quick photoshop tutorial that shows how I post-processed this iconic image taken at the Deadvlei in Namibia.

Because this is such a surreal location I wanted to reflect this in the post processing.  Because of it’s iconic nature, there are plenty of wonderful natural-looking images of the Deadvlei, so I was trying to do something a bit more abstract in the post processing to put my own mark on it.

 

I hope you enjoy this short tutorial.

Presentation At St George on 2nd December

24 11 2010

If anybody is in the area of bored out of their brain next Thursday night,  I’m delivering a presentation at St. George Camera Club @ 8PM.  I’ve been working on what I hope will be a cracker of a presentation.   In a nutshell I’m going to demo more than 20 of my best tips and tricks.  I’m grouping them into basic intermediate and advanced stuff, and I’m going to cycle through them demoing a basic tip, then an intermediate trip, then an advanced tip… then back to the beginning again.  I’m going to be going hard for a about 2 hours (or until I go through all of the topics.).

I’ve been racking my brain to try and get all of my very best little tips and tricks organised into one killer presentation.

I’m calling the presentation “Brain Squeeze”!

So, if you are in the neighborhood, drop in to St. George Leagues Club and say hi. I’m sure they will welcome visitors.

Sick with a mancold – Another Tutorial

17 11 2010

OK, I’m home sick today with a man cold.  I still don’t know why women don’t fully understand the seriousness of man colds!!! I’m not getting any sympathy.  Anyway, with some spare time on my hands I thought I’d do another tutorial.  I processed the above image yesterday.  The reason that I am doing a tutorial on it is because I had to use a number of methods to get the detail and drama into the water.  You can see from the original file (bottom) there wasn’t much detail in the highlights,  I had to coax the detail out in post processing.

I hope you enjoy it.

Seascape Workshop At Turimetta

10 08 2010

Hey  folks

I’ve announced the next dates for my 2-day intensive seascape workshop which is being held at Turimetta beach, it’s on Sat 18th September and Sunday 19th September 2010.   For those that haven’t shot Turimetta in September, this is often the month when you get the crazy luminescent green weed on the rocks which makes for some wicked shots.

There are still a few places left for this workshop, so let me know if you want to really give your seascape photography a boost.
