Welcome to the Digital Dialogue Group #54

PSA Logo

Subject - Advanced Photoshop Compositing: A true creative/altered reality group for those who work extensively in Adobe Photoshop or other similar programs. The final image requires a minimum of three original photographs composited to create a new image. Simply adding a filter or plug-in that adds an effect to an image or a layer, such as "Fractalius" that adds light streaks, or paint effects that create "pencil" drawing effects, is insufficient. Filters used to enhance the quality, mood or feel of the image are, of course, acceptable. The intent is to create an image, one that is greater than the sum of its parts.

The images displayed on this website were created by members of the Photographic Society of America’s (PSA) Digital Dialogue Group #54.   The creators of these images explain how they arrived at the final results by manipulating their photographs in a digital imaging program such as Photoshop.   The images are presented for Group members to study and critique by offering constructive comments on the artistic merit, technical strengths and weaknesses of each image.   In some cases, group members will post a rework of the image to demonstrate their suggestions.

Enjoy your visit to Group #54 and be sure to check back each month for a new set of images.   For best viewing, your monitor should be set to a minimum resolution of 1024 x 768.

All images are the copyright of the individual photographers and none should be copied or used in any form, whatsoever, without the expressed written permission of the photographer.
