I recently bought and have since finished a fantastic book that Glyn Dewis had published, The Photoshop Workbook . I’m constantly learning and I love reading workshop type manuals. Yeah, I’m that guy that can put together anything with out instructions =) When I get the time and “Vision” uhm…DA Visions. plug plug. I like to vision an Idea and then work out how I’m going to send that idea, or message out. Some people call me crazy, but really I like to take life as a gift and try to have fun and bring smiles to people. I realized I spend a lot of time learning and sometimes, yes, I read in the can. So, what better way to show Glyn how much I liked his book…so much so that I read it in the can =) I had this image in my mind of what I must look like in the “reading room” so I set out to layer one image of me opening the door and another of me in the can. I used one strobe plus ambient and balanced the color and some dodge n burn and you have it. I then sent it to Glyn via email and he replied…
“OMG that is brilliant!!! Absolutely brilliant! Doug can I share this? Glyn”
So, when a master retoucher/photographer asks to use my image and put it on his blog…uh that’s a no brainer. =) anyway I’m glad to make him smile and get a laugh. And me, well, knowing I can make someone oceans apart from me laugh and enjoy my image made me happy. As Glyn would say, cheers mate!
Oh, as for the picture click on his blog link 😉
