The Forever Student
How many ways can I say that some posts are going to be about me learning a new trick in Photoshop, or even with my camera. I find learning new tricks can be a hard thing to do. You have to devote time to it, and then you need to work out what to do, then after you have done it, then you have to see if you can apply it to you own work in a meaningful way. Today I was going to go through the magazine that I bought and see if I could do something else, but I couldn’t find anything that I wanted to try, sad really. There was one thing that I have wanted to try for a while, so you are getting the images from that.
Reflections, or rather fake ones. I have seen them done, and I am pretty sure I have seen images with them and I have wanted to try doing some, so I did a search on the internet to see what I could find. I found one, which I can’t access from this computer so will try and do it on the other computer later. So I have remembered and here is the link to the site, click here.
If you know Flinders Street Station, then this image is going to look weird to you, I don’t know if it really works, but when I first tried doing an image it was the first one I found that I thought had any chance of working. I have had this idea in my head for a while for a series of images similar to this, so learning how to do this was important.
I think the second attempt worked better.
The tutorial I followed was okay, and I managed to do it, but there were problems with it, some of it didn’t work the way I thought it should and I had to modify some. I think if I was going to do it again, I would look for other tutorials, or look at quite a few and see what they all say. It might be nicer to do that.
Eventually with the work I am doing I would like to be able to create my own reality in some way, not sure how, but I also know that right now I don’t have the skills but slowly I am learning. One day soon I will be able to do it.
