Photography Artist

by

Today’s post is a little bit different. This shows how a mediocre photo can be turned into an amazing photo using Photoshop in the capable hands of a skillful photographer.

The original picture was taken by me, but the real artist was Mark Collins of Mark Collins Productions. On one of the photography forums I frequent, Open Source Photo, I submitted this photo for a contest to see who could do the best job at turning it into a work of art. Mark was the clear winner. He used many techniques on this photograph including vignetting, blurring, dodging and increasing the contrast.  Lucky for all of us, Mark was kind enough to reveals his secrets.
