Learning Photoshop

Loralee Choate



I spent last night watching an expert work on a photograph I took of Loralee at BlogHer. The result of his labors, teaching me all the while, are displayed above. Of course, it helps that the subject looks like a movie star to begin with.

Such a beautiful woman. Inside and out.

And such a talented photographer.

When are you coming to australia to photograph me. And not just my boobs.
LOL

Suzanne said...

When you showed your collage during BlogHer, I thought that was a great picture.

You learned some tips, but Lou, you've already got a great eye for composition. And a great subject to photograph, too.

All kinds of the awesome!

Are you taking a photoshop class? Cool , Lou.

Yes, I agree you had a great model to work with and I don't know who she is. She definitely looks too young for me. I love black and white photographs. Some of my favorite films were made in black and white. Now, if you can attract all the women in the world to beat a path to your door to have their picture taken, you could give up that job of fixing everyone's computer problems. :-)

That is a beautiful picture! Of a beautiful lady! I adore Photoshop. I marvel at all of the amazing things that can be done with it. How did we ever live without it?

Great shot Lou!

Great photo, Lou! I just got a new computer, installed Photoshop and accidentally searched my entire external hard drive for photos. Now my organizer has 100,000 photos and images and videos...

So instead of playing with Photoshop I am laboriously searching and deleting duplicates and stacking photos and putting them in albums. It's so much fun. I cannot tell you how thrilled I am to know I have to sort 100,000 images...

Coal Miner's Granddaughter said...

Yep, need to start e-mailing you all of my photos. For, you know, improvement. :)

What a gorgeous shot Lou! I echo Suzanne comments on your eye for composition.

Audubon Ron said...

Hyphen Mama said...

What did the original look like? Because all I'm seeing is a beautiful woman... don't tell me you photoshopped her up?

Tracey - Just Another Mommy Blog said...
