Colorful Cambodia and new eBook!

 

New eBook!  10 Photoshop Skills Everyone Should Know

Get it here now.  A new one!  I wrote this one for “Beginners and Beyond” because I know how intimidating Photoshop can be to people.   It’s full of all kinds of useful stuff to make you more successful (and have more fun!) in Photoshop.  Enjoy!

Daily Photo – Colorful Cambodia

Many of my Cambodia photos ended up going in more of the monochromatic direction.  I like the black & white look + sepia treatments.  They make it all seem sort of timeless and nice.  But when I was processing this one, I decided to have the sunrise colors shine through.

I remember at this point in the morning, my lens was finally fog-free.  This was a hard lesson to learn, but now I no longer go from AC environments to muggy outdoors in the same way.  If I have to go through this situation, I normally keep my camera inside a big ziplock baggie, which ends up getting most of the condensation when I go back outside.

    Beautiful photo, and for what it’s worth I like the choice of using color. The ebook looks cool, I’ll have to check it out!

    I’ve had a lot of problems with fogging in cold environments (winter in Canada). I didn’t know it was such an issue in warmer weather, but the ziplock bag trick seems to be the universal solution.

  • Sooo beautiful – awesome colors! The hangout tonight on twit was fun and interesting – enjoyed it!!

    Hey Suz.
    Your boy is short for Austin and heading off to the never never soon, leaving we Austinites to fend for ourselves.  I fear dark times lie ahead for us.  Hope all is well for you.

    Love the early morning feel to this one.   Here is my early morning sunrise over a foggy valley. Trey’s HDR tricks applied.  Masking and layers, masking and layers.   Thanks.   Here is the link to the original gallery.

    Hey Trey.. “desaturated” is spelled wrong on page 29 of your ebook… since you know the publisher it should be an easy fix 🙂

  • Fantastic colors, would love to know more what you used for color toning this…

    Great shot of Angkor Wat!  I had the same lens fogging problem when I photographed this location before sunrise.  I learned a big lesson that morning, keep the AC off the night before going here.  I would like to go back to Angkor Wat at the time of the year when the sun rises directly behind the temple.

  • I love it. The timing is perfect and I’m making use of the tools right now. Like the skies have opened and I can see the light!

     1st: Love your work…

    2nd, and far more importantly; why push the usefulness of a REALLY EXPENSIVE piece of software when there’s a free open-source piece of software which works on any computer which is just as capable? I am, of course, referring to GIMP.

    I know Adobe push lots of money at schools to get them to teach their expensive software to people, but don’t you think it’s time we ended that sort of dishonest economic behaviour?  Please, look into and support open source software.

    3rd: Love your work.
