Easy bokeh tutorial!After writing a surprisingly successful journal entry a few days ago, I've decided I'll be trying to update this as much as possible - thanks for all the support everyone! You're amazing!Easy bokeh tutorial!3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
There are so many more topics in photography I think people would find very useful. Years ago, when I first started dabbling in photography, I was always so fascinated by the 'bokeh' effect in backgrounds, and often attempted to get the same effect but to no avail. What was I doing wrong? I had a good Canon slr and a kit lens of 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 - shouldn't that be enough? WRONG! I started again from scratch, researched every possible tutorial existed on the web... I realized I was doing all the wrong things!
How to create beautiful Bokeh
1. Large aperture works best, so use a low f-stop number like f1.4, f1.8 or f2.8.
2. The best lens I ever bought was the Canon 50mm f/1.8, creating soft beautiful bokeh light in the background. I remember I only paid around $100 for it, so it reall

Photoshop Actions are the recordings of commands that can be applied to one or multiple images in Photoshop. When you press play, it applies these recorded commands. Think about changing the mood in a picture with various adjustment layers. Using an action can actually help you save a lot of time.
Which versions of Photoshop are lieveheersbeestje's actions compatible with?
All Photoshop CS versions, CS2 to CS6 Extended. My actions are not compatible with Photoshop Elements or other programs.

Whilst sipping a cup of tea and pondering what to write for my next journal, I remembered something that happened to me a few weeks ago. I was at a local nature reserve, photographing the beautiful bushland and exploring the landscape - when I noticed some people bush-walking a few meters away. Without thinking, I snapped away and thought they added a very interesting element to my photos, enjoying the peacefulness just like me.
A few minutes later, a man noticed what I was doing and came over to me in a gruff, and asked me why I was taking his photo! At first I was stunned into silence, but then I smiled warmly and told him that I thought the landscape looked so amazing, and capturing people enjoying it was just purely incidental. I felt like I was almost bracing myself for his angry response, but his face softened and he asked me if he could see the photos. Of course I flicked through my camera to show him, and quite obviously you couldn't see any of th

The Photographers Guide : Taking Quality PhotosThe camera is just a tool, it's not magical. You don't even need a DSLR to be a photographer. Anyone can take a picture on any device, and it be considered art. It is how you do this that most effects your outcome. For example, take me. I don't own a dedicated camera - used my camera phone - the Nokia N8 - for each and every photograph i have clicked that is in my gallery. Sounds odd ? Well its the truth.

Project Educate-Conceptual ArtI have the pleasure of writing the article on Conceptual Art for Project Education Photomanipulation Week. I hope those of you who have been unsure and those of you who simply didn't know, will learn something about Conceptual Art today.Project Educate-Conceptual Art3 years ago in Personal More Like This

What is Conceptual Art?
Answer: Conceptual art deals with ideas rather than with the final product. It is "art in which the idea behind a particular work, and the means of producing it, are more important than the finished work." http://dictionary.com
"Conceptual art is art in which the concept(s) or idea(s) involved in the work take precedence over traditional aesthetic and material concerns."

Celebrate St. Patrick's Day with us!March 17th is traditionally known as St. Patrick's Day, a time to celebrate the Irish, feast, and enjoy all things green. It commemorates Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. Among numerous achievements, St. Patrick banished all snakes from Ireland, at least according to legend. Today, there are parades around the world to celebrate the day.

Cómo obtener más visitas en Deviant Art
Muchos son los detractores de la popularidad en Deviant Art; entre los argumentos a favor de esta postura están :
No me interesa ser popular, no necesito la atención de los demás.
Ser popular es una meta muy banal.
Lo importante es la calidad de mis visitas, no la cantidad.
Bueno, todas estas posturas son muy respetables , pero cuando hablamos de usuarios que son freelancers , todos sabemos lo importante que es tener tráfico en nuestras respectivas páginas.
Son muchos los motivos que empujan a los freelancers a utilizar DA como plataforma de lanzamiento, y más aún en estos tiempos de crisis económica, en los que el sector de las artes gráficas sufre mucho. Uno de estos motivos es que no hay alternativas de calidad:

Don't let this short list fool you, there are TONS MORE of Nagel sets available for free online, just google them. There are a few brushes in my arsenal that I can't share since they are proprietary brushes from studios that I worked at, but they aren't anything more sophisticated than what the Nagels can do.
Also, I am 99.9% this is where the rake brush came from:
