I have a Photoshop tutorial to share with you … well, the link anyway. So, how many times have you scanned through your photos and thought to yourself “If only.” Besides the usual: if only I focused on this than or that, if only I shot at a higher speed, used a different lens, stood here, did this, did that. . . or how about if only there was just one more element in the photo. . . to give it that little extra pop! I have just such a photo.
When I looked at the original photo, my first thought was “Darn, I should have written on the glass or left my hand print (like in Titanic). . . “If only.” So I attempted a re-do this a.m. I had the same conditions: a gray, foggy, and misty morning … no problem, right? Wrong . . . the glass was almost dry. It just did not look like it did yesterday (and me without a water bottle to spritz the glass.)
But I wasn’t ready to give up, so I decided to turn to Photoshop. After a couple futile attempts on my own, I went in search of a how-to. The trick here was coming up with the right combination of words in Google to get the result I wanted: Photoshop, Photoshop hands on glass, misty glass, nope, nope, nope, and then finally. . . bingo! . . Photoshop writing on window (but, of course, that’s what I was trying to do). I had the photo, now I had the tutorial, now all I needed was the word. . . and I thought that would be the easy part. . .
Here’s my before and after and a link for the tutorial. . . and another photo saved from the trash bin.
So what do you think? Yes, I am really putting the question out there. Thoughts? Critique welcome, but please be helpful not hurtful . . . this was, remember, my first attempt.
