Easy Does It

It’s been one of those days. The brain hasn’t got into gear at all, evident by the typos that led to my embarrassment on Twitter, but it’s ok, the weekend is almost here and I can turn the tiny brain off. Anyhoo…..

After posting the Shift-Tilt tip the other day I have been asked about other easy to achieve effects, that look like you took a while on them.

So, here are a few that I’ve come across;

 

Easy Watercolor Painting Effect from Photoshop Essentials.com

Disclaimer:

Effects and composition should be done in-camera as much as possible, spending time with photographers and saying “it’s ok, I’ll do that in Photoshop” gets you frowned at and in many circumstances, left out of the tea/beer/nut order.

Have fun, and a fun weekend. 

Please remember I would love to hear from you (yeah, I know I sound desperate). Through the contact page above, on Twitter or on Facebook.
