I enabled Disqus comments on the blog, because I love to hear what people think of the stuff I do. I try to check what people say on reblogs, but sometimes it just becomes a bit overwhelming with Tumblr’s system.
Thanks for the great tips. :) I really like your work. I do the adjustments, and the vignette of the picture. I am still practicing with curves. Haha. But it was a great gaussian blur tip. But do you use any filters such as sharpen, and noise? I always use noise at around 2 and lower the vibrance, and that has always given me a unique look on my photos. Thanks alot! :D
I use some noise, but that’s usually the only filter effect I use.
You have any tips on how to do stills? I've been doing quite a lot lately, and i'm still learning how to improve my caps and all. You're work is amazing.
For most of my images I roll with the same adjustment layers (Curves, Brightness/Contrast, Vibrance, Hue/Saturation, and Color Balance), and raise/lower the numbers depending what I want to achieve. I play around and see what works.
Textures can really enhance images as long as you are subtle with it. It should barely be noticeable. Also, try adding a soft black shadow along the edges of an image.
But I have one thing that I find pretty much always improve images. Duplicate the image layer and apply a Gaussian Blur at around 6px. Then set that layer to Overlay and lower the transparency to 25-50%. Instant success.
