Art Jones's curator insight, November 14, 2014 12:49 PM

This is a amazing manipulation of a photo. The  concept of pulling the road up behind you or laying the road down as you go, the photo makes you stop, look and say WOW!

A Photographer's Magical Vision of Paradise

A Photographer's Magical Vision of Paradise | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Many of the “models” found in Dutch photographer Ruud van Empel’s work have an otherworldly appearance and live in an otherworldly environment.

That’s because van Empel doesn’t find his models, he builds them—out of pixels. For each child, or set of twins, he photographs four or five professional models and blends their features in Photoshop. The nature settings are assembled from photos of foliage and ponds in his native Netherlands.

Photoshop Proves Once and For All That Shakespeare Was a Hipster

Photoshop Proves Once and For All That Shakespeare Was a Hipster | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Created over a period of five months, these mockups are about as true-to-life as any photoshop-enabled time-traveling fantasy could be; author and historian Dr. Suzannah Lipscomb made sure the 2013 versions of this historical superstars actually reflect what they might look like modern day, to whatever extent that's possible. The Secret Life Of... took into account not just their professions/titles but also their attitudes, personalities, income, and other intangibles that might explain why Marie Antoinette would be such a fox, while Henry VIII is basically the Most Interesting Man in the World.

Liquid Splash Photography Tutorial,Part 2: Post-Production in Photoshop

Liquid Splash Photography Tutorial,Part 2: Post-Production in Photoshop | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

As usual  when I’m done shooting I import all photos from the camera into Lightroom. When the import is done, I start going through every image and mark out the ones I want to use for the final shot. I mark them with colors in Lightroom so I quickly can sort them to see what shots I did use.

I´ve got 166 splash shots from this session to choose from, I can honestly say that I just did a really quick look through of the images before starting to combine them in Photoshop. It was just so many shots to go through so I did just take a look at the thumbnails to see the shape of the shots, and when I found a shape that I thought I could work with I opened it and edited quickly in Lightroom before opening it into Photoshop.

The Associated Press Is Not 'Vogue,' Fired Photoshopping Photographer Learns

The Associated Press Is Not 'Vogue,' Fired Photoshopping Photographer Learns | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Digitally altering photographs might be accepted -- expected, really -- when it comes to magazines like Vogue, but it's a big no-no when it comes to news organizations. Yet that's what one Pulitzer-winning AP photographer chose to do to a photo he took in Syria in September.

Narciso Contreras was part of a team of five AP photographers who won a Pulitzer for breaking news photography last year for their work in Syria. The AP also posted a video of Contreras discussing his work to YouTube last June and he spoke to the Guardian and Time about working in a country in the middle of a bloody and brutal civil war in December 2012.

Photo Restoration in Photoshop and Bringing Memories Back to Life

Photo Restoration in Photoshop and Bringing Memories Back to Life | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

When Hurricane Sandy struck the East Coast last fall, I remember reading stories about the survivors (by chance I’d escaped it myself by just hours a week before) and one theme kept popping up – people facing great danger to retrieve their family photos. Brave survivors were running into hazardous buildings, fighting through rushing floods and putting their lives at risk to retrieve precious memories. Those photos were people’s most valued treasures, and the storm was damaging them the same way it damaged their homes and their lifestyles.
