Photomanip Series Feature
I've stumbled accross some amazing photomanipulation series in the last couple of weeks, and since my previous journal is incredibly old already I felt like it would be a good time to give a shout-out to those passionate artists, who are brave enough to tackle such a thing. From my own experience I know it can be pretty tough to complete a series of images, which are all visually and conceptually connected but still unique in their own way. This is especially true in the photomanip genre, where we're often reliant on a pool of photos and therefore limited in following the visual guidelines we set for ourselves. I last attempted to create a se

CLOSED-Photomanipulation Contest - Zodiac
Contest is closed - judging in progress - - - - - - - Only 11 days left!! - - - - - - - Hi, everyone! :wave: So, it's time for another photomanip contest! :eager: The theme of this one is the zodiac. It is one often used; however, rather than just focusing on the star zodiac (Aries, Capricorn, Aquarius, etc.), I thought it would be interesting to incorporate other types of zodiacs. I have found pages that give information on some of the more well-known ones (however, you are welcome to dig as deep as you'd like and go further than the ones shown below): Astrological zodiac: http://www.whats-your-sign.com/zodiac-signs-and-meanings.html

January Challenge and December Winner!
January Theme: New Beginning How are you guys in the New Year? I hope you've had a great time this New Year's Eve and are looking forward to new challenges and surprises! Everything is beginning once more; did you make any resolutions? And at last, this brings me to this month's theme - New Beginning! What can you portray? Let's think about it - is a beginning of a new season? Is a brave hero beginning an adventure? Is a wanderer setting off on the road to the unknown? Is a child being born? Or maybe someone is being raised from the dead? Or dying? Is someone in the process of creating a new, wonderful world? As you can see, there is reall

My Bio

Hi there, I'm Jasmin

I'm an engineer who loves pretty, colourful things.

You can also follow my art on instagram and my own website artofkuschelirmel.de.

I share my resources and tutorials at kuschelirmel-stock as well as on my youtube channel.

Please Note:

  • I often don't have much time during the week, so answers to comments and notes will be slow - I do read every single comment and I do try to answer all in a timely fashion, but sometimes it can take a week or two.
    • I am currently unavailable for licensing or commissions. I have a full time job and this is my hobby and it should stay my hobby, anything else is just too stressful.
    • My artwork is not available for free, neither.

Tools of the Trade
Photoshop, Lightroom, After Effects, Premiere // Nikon D7200 + D90 [18-105 mm | 70 - 300 mm tele | 105 mm macro | 10-24 mm wide angle | 50 mm] lenses

Photomanipulation Articles

Photomanipulation Articles

Photomanipulation for Beginners an article about what photomanipulation is and what you need to try it - and on the ever so important issue of "where do I get pictures to play with?"

Of Copyright & Premades is an article that strives to explain what copyright means, who it protects and that simply putting work into something will not make using something without permission okay.

Know your Basics

A series of articles that try to explain some basics in art that you may or may not have heard of before but didn't know what to do with them. All of them are written especially for photo- manipulators, but the principles should hold true in any genre.

kuschelirmel - the art of Jasmin Junger
Since I don't get around to updating this journal as often as I should, I thought I'd leave you some information on me and what I do in case you're interested... My name is Jasmin Junger, by day I work for an engineering and construction company based in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. I live in Karlsruhe though, that means quite the long commute every day (though I can do home office sometimes). That in turn means there is little time for my photography and photomanipulation hobby - so if you are trying to reach me, please don't get mad if I don't immediately respond. I have been photoshopping for more than 15 years now and I still absolutely

Non-destructive Editing in Photoshop
Photomanip Weekend Photoshop has a great arsenal of tools that let you work non-destructively. Let's take a look at three of the most important options. 1. Layer & Vector Masks Have you ever cut something out using the eraser only to find out later (when your undos are no longer available) that you cut too much? Use Layer and Vector Masks instead of the eraser! A Layer Mask (Layer > Layer Mask > Add Layer Mask) is a raster mask that can go from white through grey to black: anything you paint black will become invisible, anything white is visible and all greys are degrees of opacity. You can use any brush to paint on it or you can
