Well all the new kit is here , locked and loaded and to coincide with that we have had 75kph winds, large dollops of rain and a general bleughiness....so besides teaching myself how to sculpt wire into insects and animals I've sat nere and been on the rather marvellous Wacom youtube site and learned all I could have done about this piece of kit, the Intuos A4 tablet that acts as a magnet for dust and biscuit crumbs. I've used it for a bit of painting and sketching but never really set it up to run with Photoshop and Lightroom. So for most of it's unboxed life it only really added to the desktop clutter. So now I have pressure sensitivity on retouching, masks, painting and cloning...run it without a dither or jiggle over 2 monitors and...yep ...it really is better than that old mouse. So here's one I did just now
An oldy but that is one of the reasons I wanted to fill up on the Wacom techniques. I have a drawer full of Hard Drives, things snapped over the last 10 years of Digital photography. Well I want to go back and see if what I know now could be applied to old files and how that would affect how the final image would look, I'd also be using up to date software and kit on things produced with an Olympus E-20 and the old Fuji S3 which had a tinpot collection of lenses. Idea is to produce some print books ( for me not any Blurb based production) Feeling a bit mortal after this last years 'Health Scares' and I want to make sure that there are some hard copies before the Interweb melts and everything vanishes. More about the books later.....
What's all this then????
An unyeilding torrent of Photo babbel full of unconfirmed facts and manufactured photo drivel.. take from it what you like, it won't change the world but may leave you feeling nauseous...
