Time is precious and we don’t want it to slip away that easy without taking advantage of its significance. To circumvent waste of time, Snapshot can be a great help to us.
Why use a slow shutter speed? This is because slow shutter speed will help blur the image of the water. Thus, a silky-look is created. This impacts the viewers of your image to see the water in the photograph as if in motion.
In the early nineties I was constantly being told that you couldn’t use Photoshop to do professional level work. I just smiled and went back to watching that progress bar. Actually, I should say several progress bars.
Use that old toothbrush to create a variety of effects in your landscape paintings. For example, it’s great for watercolor techniques. I cannot count the times I’ve used an old toothbrush to spatter “snow” onto my winter landscapes. Contrary to what you may have been told, the color “white” in watercolor does serve a purpose. Just make sure it’s opaque white. You can also use it with acrylic paint to create the same effect. In addition, you can use it to spatter small “stones” on the ground, picking up a brownish colored watercolor or acrylic color. What’s more, dab some green paint for splotches of grass and bushes. And, if you load it up with water and spatter into a wet watercolor sky, you can use it as a Data Masking Tool, to give the appearance of “rain”.
For designing a ‘Bee Movie Effect’, the first step is to prepare the background filled with black color. After that, you must add a light gradient effect to a new layer created on top of the background. To the background layer, you can add a ‘bee movie’ screenshot. To the upper layer, add effects such as black to white linear gradient with multiply effect. Then create the base text. To the text add other effects such as drop shadow, inner shadow, inner glow, bevel and emboss, gradient overlay etc. Thus you will end up with some nice looking letters that you can use in a variety of contexts.
Now use the brash and keep tracing out the background parts. The more accurately you can do this, the more suitable will be the final result. Use smaller brushes when you are working on the edges. Usually a 150-200% zoom will help you working comfortably.
If you have more than one snapshot in a working file, do not forget to label your snapshots to be able to have a better workflow management when it comes to organization of your images. It is nice to do it that way for easy and fast selection and for an efficient scheme.
