My attempt at Photoshop...
Hope your week is good. Thank god it is Friday. So this is my attempt at photoshop. The real basic skills I think I am ok at but when you try and do the Brad Myers/Brian Bastinelli photoshop ADVANCED level..I still need lots of practice on.
This is actually a model of the Philadelphia Fire Department Fire Boat 2. I was trying to recreate a look from the 70's during Philly's war years. The model is actually on a display stand with the photo in the background.
I cropped in as much as I could but still had some of the stand exposed. So I tried to add the water in the areas where the stand was and tried to blend it together but it did not go as well as I planned.
I really did not have anything else today, so I thought I would throw this out there and see what you good people in blogger world really think.
If you were curious as to how I got the idea, Brian Bastinelli had a photograph of a piece of fire apparatus that actually turned out to be a toy. Looking at the photo right away, you could not tell. That's what I was trying for, I'll need to keep practicing some more...
Have a great weekend!
