Photoshop Blend Modes Explained – Photo Blog Stop

by Robert Thomas

Working with blend modes is almost always an experimental process. Because it’s nearly impossible to predict the results, you always seem to end up experimenting with different modes and Fill Opacities until you get the results you’re looking for.

In this article I’m going to give you a high-level view of what the various blend modes do, and then I’ll dig deeper into the nuts and bolts of the blend modes by explaining some of the math involved, and their interrelationships with each other. I’m not going to “show” you how the blend modes work—I’m going to “explain” how they work. By the time you finish reading this article, you should have a better idea of how to use blend modes and where to begin your “experimentation,” which in turn should reduce the time it takes to achieve the results you’re looking for.

It’s All Dreaming: Essential Writings about Photography from Aperture – Free Guide From Aperture | LensCulture

In 1952, Ansel Adams, Melton Ferris, Dorothea Lange, Ernest Louie, Barbara Morgan, Nancy and Beaumont Newhall, Dody Warren, and Minor White launched Aperture. These artists and writers created the quarterly journal to connect with “serious photographs and creative people everywhere, whether professional, amateur or student.” At a time when photography was still on the outskirts of the art world, Aperture presented writing and critical dialogue of the highest caliber to anyone and everyone who was interested in learning more about the medium.

The Vivid Light Blend Mode [Video] – f64 Academy

There are 27 blend modes in Adobe Photoshop and if you are anything like the “me before I learned them all“, you are only using three, maybe four to their maximum potential.  One of those you may be missing out on is the Vivid Light Blend Mode.  It is a powerhouse for color grading, but on the surface, it looks far from it!

Eight Blend Modes don’t function like the rest of their friends in the bunch.

Vivid Light Blend Mode one f the 8 Fill Blend Modes

These eight Blend Modes rely heavily on the Fill slider.  Each blend mode is a sort of calculation happening in the background after you select it.  While they all have different calculations, they are essentially pre-programmed to turn pixels on and off, add, subtract, multiply or divide pixels, or told to call upon other blend modes.  The Vivid Light Blend mode is a mixture of Color Burn and Color Dodge and interacts with your image differently based on the selected layer.

Vivitar 500mm lens, too good to be true? – f64 Academy

Does the Vivitar 500mm lens hold up to it’s hefty $119 price tag?

It is not very often that I need a 500mm lens.  I can recall a handful of times I said it would be nice, and maybe once at Indian Beach in Oregon where I NEEDED it.  Therefore, the likelihood of me running out and buying a $2000+ lens for one or two shots every once in a while is very impractical.

Before we take this any further, let me clarify something.  I am primarily a landscape guy who is tripod mounted and more often than not, shooting between f/11 and f/16.  A super-fast telephoto is one of the least of my worries.  However, if you are a wildlife or sports photographer, by all means, you need a fast telephoto.  This post is for the tripod mounted photogs. 

While I was researching off brand telephoto lenses on Amazon, I ran across this super cheap ($119 at the time of purchase) 500-1000mm telephoto lens.   I thought it was too good to be true so I picked one up.   I figured I’d only be out $119 if it turned out to be a lemon and it might, at the least, make a good conversation piece in my camera and lens collection.  To my surprise, it is much better than expected.

Creatief gebruik van scherptediepte in de natuurfotografie – Natuurfotografie

Creatief gebruik van scherptediepte in de natuurfotografie

Ons menselijk oog is in staat om alles om ons heen scherp te zien. Zodra we naar een bepaald punt kijken focust het oog en is eigenlijk alles wat we bekijken, van dichtbij tot veraf, steeds scherp. Met fotografie kunnen we daar juist mee spelen en kunnen we een ‘andere werkelijkheid’ creëren.
