Re: masked couch potato

Wow, wow and double wow. The transformation of this is fantastic. I will echo what others have stated and say your creativity is something worth keeping an eye on. Overall I love the textures that have come out in the revamp. I'm also really digging the beam of light cutting through the dark. I woul...

Re: masked couch potato

To me, there is something disturbing in this image. Lurking in the scribbles is a fetus with a man's face or lice larvae on a microscope slide. Maybe even a microscopic bacteria or the dust bunny under that couch Piet mentioned... The multiple layers do add a sense of translucency to the image, even...

I for one would be very interested. Elsewhere I'll show a picture of mine. :lol:
I'll have to do a little bit of cleaning first. I've been rather lax while this Covid isolation has been in effect. :)

Re: Fountain sodas

With the existing shot, the trick is to find a balance of color among the various glasses without looking 'staged'. By switching the Mountain Dew with the Root Beer I would create the needed contrast on the end and reduce the lost feeling. However, that would put the two dark colas like bookends. Ma...

Re: Fountain sodas

I like the perspective but something about the background bothers me, I think the color is too close to the soda, but it could just be me. S- The tabletop was chosen to match that of the restaurant's but yes, the sodas on the far end do tend to get lost. I actually want to redo a soda shoot. Hopefu...

Thank you Minnie. Achieving this effect is relatively easy with only a few adjustment layers and mask effects, with some pen tool line work tossed in. :D

Comic Brii Hiltz

Bri is a friend on mine I met many years ago. She has been doing stand-up for five or six years (or so) now. I offered to do a photo session with her to get her some marketing material for her (i.e. both of us). From that session I took this one image and decided to do some abstract design to make a...

Re: To The photoMentoris Family - COVID-19 Update

Beautifully said, Steve. It really is easy to get self involved in what's going on. The survival mode kicks in and so many other things end up taking less and less priority. While the threat of COVID-19 is real and affecting us in a very personal way the truth is that eventually this will pass. Mayb...

Re: Comic Stefano Sanzo

Thanks Minnie. He ended up using that second image as his facebook header image. :D

By the way, the CMY colors used are based on his preference. He has them in his logo as well.
