From “traditional” to digital painting

I always believed that we have reached the point that there are no more boarders between “traditional” and digital art.  Using Moleskine and Adobe apps we can jump from a “traditional”  pencil painting to digital painting using Adobe Photoshop CC.

I started my project using the  Moleskine Smart Notebook (Creative Cloud connected )



Using the FREE  Moleskine, a Creative Cloud connected app I took picture of my sketch . The image was saved in my Creative Cloud folder.


And I finished my project in Adobe Photoshop CC  using a Wacom Tablet


Wacom Intuos Pro Pen and Touch Medium Tablet (PTH651)

Live preview of Dehaze effect in Adobe Lightroom

This year I went to a local park for a 4th of July fireworks display. I pretty much got some nice images using my Nikon  and Terry White’s firework shooting settings.  But  it doesn’t matter how good your settings are we still cant avoid the smoke in our fireworks pictures. Thanks to the Dehaze effect in Adobe  Lightroom CC  I can remove the smoke from my pictures in a second simply moving Dehaze effect slider to the right. Moving Dehaze slider to the right from 0  to +100 you are removing haze/smoke from your pictures. Moving the Dehaze effect slider from 0 to -100 you can add a haze effect to your pictures.
