My photo on BBC’s website

I love taking landscape photographs. Last week I was in Edinburgh and took some photos in the city and I became one of the lucky photographers who was picked by BBC to include it in an ongoing collection of Scotland. Edinburgh is beautiful, I can honestly recommend it to anyone. It has a very special atmosphere.

Scarface Design Contest

Listen cock-a-roach, my life story is coming to Blu-ray™ on September 6th, 2011. To celebrate the Scarface Blu-ray™ debut, my fans will have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to design their own Scarface-inspired artwork. My ‘associates’ at Universal will select the Top 25 submissions based on creativity, originality, quality of composition/design and utilization of the Scarface theme.

How does masking work?

Masking is one of the most essential concepts in Photoshop and it is the foundation to work non-destructively with layers. Although it is a simple concept it is difficult to understand. Whenever I teach beginners to use Photoshop I always tell them to think of the mask as a black paper with a white hole in it. You can only see through the white hole. I hope this example will help you to understand masking and remember the way it works.
