Zach & Debbie’s Wedding Collage in 3-D!!!

May 26, 2009

This is a collage I did for my friends Zach and Debbie’s wedding. I used the photos taken by Sherre Paris and retouched them and collaged them into a design. Then I went ahead and turned the poster into an Anaglyph 3-D poster. You will need a pair of Anaglyph 3D glasses to see the effect. Or visit the poster at Zach and Debbie’s sometime.  It really loses quality posting to wordpress though. I can only be enjoyed fully at 100% on a high res monitor or if you look at the print. Below i show it without the 3-D Effect so you can see the design more clearly and the details of the photo retouching.

And now some examples of the Photo retouching before and after. Take particular note of the clipping around the girl’s feathery hat, Photoshop geeks should like that.

Smoke Skull Case Study

May 16, 2009

I saw this effect in a stock photograph so I figured I would try to figure out how it is done in photoshop, this is relatively easy to do.

Step 2: Editing the photo till it looks like it was formed from smokeskull smoke

Step 3: Photo edit the smoky skull into the smoke of the pipe:

Scenesters = Trekkies theory 12-12-2003

May 12, 2009

This applies to any scene, Mod, rocker, punk, hardcore etc. I will use mods for this example though.

you have star trek…

1. you have people that don’t watch it.

2. you have people that don’t watch it and make fun of trekkies.

3. you have people that watch it enjoy it for what it is, and leave it at that, but appreciate it on a clear-minded level

4. you have people that watch it and deny they watch it

5. you have the trekkies that take it way too seriously, make it their life, go to conventions, buy the dvds and spock ears and action figures it, buy all the product obsessively.

Now lets do it with a Britpop scenester:

you have the Britpop music genre…

1. you have people that don’t listen to it.

2. you have people that don’t listen to it and make fun of the scensters.

3. you have people that listen to it enjoy it for what it is, and leave it at that, but appreciate it on a clear-minded level

4. you have people that listen to it and deny they listen to it

5. you have the scensters that take it way too seriously, make it their life, go to shows, buy the cds, the hip clothes, the concert tee shirt, the scarf and get the haircut.

now…MODS and trekkies are EXACTLY the same…the only reason MODS cannot see it is…

…scarfs, go-go boots, and mod haircuts look cooler then fake plastic spock ears

*end of theory*
