4_Perspective

Photoshop CC’s recent addition to its Blur Gallery, Path Blur offers a creative and flexible way to add directional motion to your images in postproduction.

The Blur Gallery now has five effects (Field Blur, Iris Blur, Tilt-Shift, Path Blur and Spin Blur) that can be controlled from a single panel. Once you’ve accessed one, you can quickly access the others at the same time, enabling you to create complex blur effects in a single stop. Path Blur alone is capable of delivering lots of complex motion effects with one simple path. It’s likely it will change the way you expose, encouraging you to be more experimental. It even may open a window into a whole new way of seeing for you. It’s astonishing! You’ve got to try it to believe it—and to truly understand it.

folio-covers

Back in December of 2009 I had the  pleasure of joining John Paul on a trip to Antarctica. On that trip I saw  firsthand the beautiful folio packaging that Brooks Jensen <http://www.brooksjensen.com> created to sell his work. I very much enjoyed the presentation style, as  it is an intimate way to share images with people and a nice departure from  large, framed, images.??When I returned from the trip I  looked all over for a source of covers to do my own folios <http://www.danecreekfolios.com/folios-for-sale>, but it turns out that nobody (including Brooks) offered them for sale. What  was a chance viewing on a ship in Antarctic waters has now become a small side  business for me! I now manufacture and sell folios covers <http://www.danecreekfolios.com/> for photographers who are interested in using folios to present or sell their  work.??The fun part for me about working  with folios is they are an excellent way to explore storytelling and photo  essays. John Paul has great guidance on these two topics in his Illuminating  Creativity lessons <http://www.johnpaulcaponigro.com/downloads/creativity/creativity.php>, and the folios are a perfect size to hold a story of 7-9 images plus title  page and colophon. I am currently working on a project <http://danecreekfolios.squarespace.com/blog/2010/4/12/second-beach-wa.html> involving images of the Washington Coast that will be packaged as a  folio with images assembled using John Paul’s Photo Essay technique.
