I am Joz! and this is a selection of my work, which if truth be told is only here and there (part-time), when I have a minute & feel inspired. For acquiring the imagery; side of things, I currently rely on just using my old photo’s that I snapped months and years ago. This is because I don’t actually have a camera of sorts (other than my 5mp mobile phone) at the moment; long for one as I may. Actually, the last real camera I had was the Fuji S7000 until I left it on a train like a spak, since then I had been using my Panasonic HDC-HS300 Video camera which sported a 10mp camera in the lens.
As with the majority of my photo’s they all go through Adobe’s Lightroom which processes out some of the noise and enhances the colours at minimum for me… Adobe® Photoshop® Lightroom® 3 software helps you bring out the best in your photographs, whether you’re perfecting one image, searching for ten, processing hundreds, or organizing thousands.…before I upload them here, that said some images are clearly manipulations of several photo’s spliced and chopped together.
This is thanks in part to another of Adobe’s products called Photoshop, which is a professional editing suite rolled into one and takes a degree to use to the fullest…Adobe® Photoshop® CS5 software redefines digital imaging with powerful new photography tools and breakthrough capabilities for complex image selections, realistic painting, and intelligent retouching. Enjoy cross-platform 64-bit support and a wide range of workflow enhancements.…I generally only use Photoshop for adding frames, cropping and removing objects from photo’s at the moment. Though as I say, manipulating images with this program is the bread and butter of its core functionality.
Sometimes I also use a vector based application for adding to images and this is
Illustrator, which is a professional vector creation tool…Create distinctive vector artwork for any project. Used by design professionals worldwide, Adobe® Illustrator® CS5 software provides precision and power with sophisticated drawing tools, expressive natural brushes, a host of time-savers, and integration with Adobe CS Live online services.* CS Live services are complimentary for a limited time..…In the case of Citylife Weekender used vectors a great deal, this is also the case with logo‘s usually but this is merely a scaling issue with logo‘s.
So now you know my workflow and the main programs that I use to get these results, but how do you get your photo turned into something new and special?
