Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway.
There is “something” magic about your black and white. I am trying to firgue it out in Photoshop but so far I have not been able to touch your magic.Your black and white looks almost like it is a photo turned into black and white plastic or steel but not soft, pliable, “love-to-touch” flesh and blood. Yet I know it is.I ordered the new Adobe Photoshop CS5 that will come out the last day of June 2010. It has some new features in it that will save me a lot of trouble. One is that if you have anything crossing the front of a picture — telephone pole or line or a flagpole or anything — and you wand to remove it without messing up the picture. There is this tool that leaves a green mark like a pencil or marker would. You simply paint out the thing you want to remove but you don’t have to be very careful and it comes right out and leaves fine strands of hair, for example, perfectly in place and undisturbed.So an electrical power line crossing the face of a pretty guy could be taken out with this tool/cursor and it disappears like magic. Can’t wait to try that on some older photos.
