Photography Painting is one of my favorite things to do with Photoshop.
It makes me feel like a real artist.
Not that I did not feel that way with my camera in hand but this gives me a chance to use my hands and use strokes like a paint brush.
This Photoshop technique is a bit of a process.
First, you have to start with a photograph that will lend itself to this technique.
Second, you need to know how to use layers in Photoshop.
Third, you will have to learn brushes and strokes in Photoshop.
Its not that hard really. The first time for me was a process but when I got the hang of it, it was a BLAST.
Experimenting is what it was all about.
Using different size brushes and strokes in relation to what was on the image was the challenge at first but as I began to navigate these tools I realized I could do so much fun creative stuff.
I could take my photography to the next level.
I call this technique Photography Painting for lack of a better word. I have been a photographer for 40+ years of my life and being 63 years old I have slowed down.
With this Photoshop style I can now go back and revisit many of my old images and create again.
If you would like to learn this technique, shoot me a email and I will send you a step by step process on how it works.
