Tricks, Though Flashy, Still Fail To Satisfy!
So I went and learned this fancy function in Photoshop (let's hear it for aliteration everbody!). I practiced with it a bunch and here are some of my favorite results. I plan to keep trying, but am finding that I enter dangerous territory. The ease at which Photoshop renders certain things has made me very dubious of getting attached artistically to anything I produce with it. It would be far better to learn the actual techniques of rendering images by hand than by modifying them mathematically. However what a euphoric release to manipulate an image and alter it to suit my athstetic!
