Painting Photos in Photoshop (It’s Addictive…in a good way)


With down time from weddings and studio shooting, I’m learning something new:  painting in photoshop!  It’s fun!

Here is the simple shot I started with.  This is my deaf Dalmatian, Zoe.  She will pose for me all day long (well, pretty much…compared to the other dogs!)


And this is what I came up with.  I still need practice, but I will keep at it and eventually offer it to my clients!  Woo Hoo!


Here is my other Dal, Kia.  She is not crazy about the camera, but once in a while I get lucky and get a cute shot.

orig for blog1Here she is painted.

Of course this set would not be complete without our newest fur child, Ling (doesn’t he look like a Panda?).  dogs-6642

And after a round of smudge painting in CS2.

    Your dalmation # 2 portrait is stunning. The eyes on that dog! Wonderful!
