This is an introduction to the digital painting for photographers in Adobe Photoshop.
Digital Painting for Photographers is unique techniques that transform your photographs to unique piece of art. The beauty of it that you don’t need to have any previous painting experience.
Importance of Daily Exercise
I found that daily exercise is very important for many reasons. Daily exercise helps with exploring/developing new techniques, polishing your skills, pushing your artistic vision into another higher level, and teaches you how to be productive and not to be stressed under the “less time” pressure.
Adobe Photoshop Daily exercise: try to have 20 minutes every day to create something new in PS. its not supposed to be too complicated or perfect. Try to composite 2 or 3 images together (and the best practice is to composite random images, not images that you thought will be good with some composition. Just choose images with absolutely different style, schemes and start working on your Photoshop composition).
Photoshop Painting: try different styles of painting every day. Don’t spend more than 20-30 minutes and you don’t need to finish your painting if you don’t have time. Just practice with brush strokes, colors, try different brushes.
Photography: simply keep your camera next to you all the time. See something > take the shot. Different light, different angles. Try it and you will see a huge improvement just in a few days!
Mobile Apps: what could be easier?!!! You have your mobile devices with you all the time! So Adobe Photoshop Sketch, Adobe Photoshop Mix and Adobe Photoshop Fix. Try them and you will be impressed with your improvement just in a few days!
Traditional Painting: use any paper you have. Don’t try to finish your masterpiece every day. Exercise with different brush, pencil strokes, composition.
Digital imaging is a big part of my workflow. I would say 97% of my work is based on digital imaging (photography, graphic/web design, digital painting, photo restoration, photo manipulation, 3D and more). Being self-employed, speed is as important as quality. I was VERY happy and surprised when I discovered the PixelSquid plugin for Photoshop. I am using 3D in Adobe Photoshop CC almost every day. I am using Adobe Fuse for all my character creating needs. Now I can use “ready to use” 3D objects (including all the PSD layers) in my workflow.
