Watercolor Painting in Photoshop Painted with my custom Photoshop watercolour brushes. Mistakes and indecision included. This is sped up from about 6 minutes down to 10 seconds. You can get a free Photoshop watercolor brush tool here: grutbrushes.com/free-realistic-photoshop-watercolor-brush/?gplus This is a brush toolset which differs from a custom brush in that it creates naturally pressure responsive brush strokes rather than just 'stencil-style' rubber stamps.
In my last post i talk about the camera settings for this kind of images and how dificult it was for me to get it right with the equipement that i have. But the challenge does not end with the camera settings. For this pictures i wanted the water drop to go through a soap bubble. getting the bubble in the tray was not hard but to keep it still and where i wanted was another story. After that was done i had to make the water drop with my left hand and keep the right one on the camera shutter. But once the drops start falling the bubble starts moving around until it bursts. You have to get your shot in those few seconds and then.... start all over again. With the settings that i have in my camera it's not easy to get one good shot so it takes a bit of luck to get one perfectly focus with such shallow depth of field...But it's fun. And makes me learn a bit more.
Archery instructor Anna Maltese's interesting [but flawed in places?] sceptical video re an archery trick shooter who claims to have rediscovered "lost" archery techniques. Comment section full of the usual YouTubery nonsense + large portions of little boy misogyny. A slower, more focussed video looking at [for example] preserved historical training manuals would have been more enlightening IMO. [Disclaimer: I'm not an archer or historian, but at times Anna seems to be falling into the very fallacy traps she's critical of].
