Several weeks ago, HDR Photography Guru, Trey Ratcliff came to my house to talk about photography and stuff, and somewhere in the mix of all of the Photoshop talk, he asked where my pen tablet was.
I said, "Oh...umm...I keep it at Best-Buy, on the shelf with the others...so it doesn't get lonely".
Actually, I never really had a good reason to NOT own one, and it only took Trey about a minute to convince me to reconsider. On the following day, I bought an Intuos4...and after a couple of weeks, my cursing became less-frequent, the learning curve leveled-out a bit, and it felt comfortable to use...and, of course, I cannot tell you how many times I wanted to kick
myself for not doing this sooner.
There is an entirely new dimension (albeit, in its infancy) in my work, now. This image started-off as a Pen Tablet Experiment/Playground...and this is what it became.
The photo of the model (that I took several years ago) is the only "real" thing in this composite image. The entire background, her hair, and parts of her dress were done with the Intuos4.Tutorial videos of my post-production and Photoshop techniques are available now at: www.ibarra2.com
