Was very cold and no photos to edit so I had time to play in photoshop. In this first I combined a photo of emgee with some stock photos of stock exchange. I also used some fairy wing brushesdark_fantasyand this next one I used a stock photo of an old polaroid and an ashtray and added photos of emgee run through Alien skin Exposure 2 the B&W polaroid effect. The table is from Alien skin Eye candy texturespolaroid_collageI guess I have too much time on my hands to read Tutorials. If amyone is interested in the process let me know

New modeling site

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , on January 30, 2009 by rickeylane

I just created a new modeling site, Gulf Coast Models just for the Southern states of Al. Ar. Ga. Fl. La. Ms. SC Tn. and Tx. I always felt that Americas other coast got overlooked on the big modeling sites. This way at least there is a chance we can work together without having to wade through members from NY and Cali. So if you read this, are a model, photographer, mua, etc and  from one of those states feel free to check it out and join

I created a new modeling site just for the Gulf coast states of Tx.,La.,Ms., al., and Fl. This way models, MUA’s and photographers from these states can interact and network together. So many times on the other modeling sites the east and west coasts dominate the site. Well now we can have a place of our own. It is free to join

Well Portrait Professional 8 never does. I contacted a model off a modeling site. She had recently moved here from another state. Her profile showed her at 110 #’s and gorgeous. Apparently she had gained weight because when she got her she was not what I expected by her photographs. So what was I to do. Use my super powers.

Before and After

Before and After

Now I will not debate the ethicalness(?) of this but I needed her to look like the after and that is what the client expected. There was no time to to get another as this was a last minute deal anyway. The client is happy and that makes me ecstatic. Sometimes good software and knowing how to use it is invaluable.

Sometimes you have to do an extreme makeover. This woman was at the TV ad shoot and she wanted me to fix her teeth and makeher beautiful
