Photomanip Series Feature

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

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.

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

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

Winter + Snow Feature

Winter + Snow Feature

I am not much of a winter person - I tend to be cold all the time and since I take the train to work, I can definitely do without standing at the station every day in the cold, too ^^; However, winter does have its nice side: walks in the snowy woods, cuddling on the couch with some tea, going to the sauna,... So here's a snowy, wintry feature (in the hopes that the snow will soon make way for spring - pretty please?) And some of my own photography: :heart:
