As I was wandering around the Newport Pier I was hoping to find something unique and eventually I did! I was watching a couple of guys executing a few acrobatic moves off the lifeguard stand and they looked like they we’re about to leave when I got up enough nerve to ask them to “perform” in front of the camera. Vince and Claude (guys, let me know if I got your names wrong) obliged and “I got them in the tin”.
Not being totally confident in working with composites in Elements I turned to the resident Elements guru, Karen Brockney, for help. She came through, as she always does, and pointed me to towards her video on the exact processing. Within minutes I produced the above photo, as basic as it is I like it’s simplicity but would also like to jazz it up. If you have any ideas let me know.
Kudo’s to Vince, Claude and Karen, without you I wouldn’t have had this learning experience.
Claude and Vince, feel free to comment and look for other versions soon!
