Vanity..Photo manipulation help!

Post  emmeline_x on Sun Oct 12, 2008 5:53 pm

This may be a bit of a vain post, but can anyone here do wizardry with photoshop? I would love some nice Steampunk themed pictures of me to throw around the internet, but I have no idea where to start confused
I've seen pictures of people that look as if they're in an amazing fantasy Steam environment, but it's all just photo manipulation.
So, if anyone can help me out (and you can laugh at any pics I send you!) then I'll be most grateful and of course, credit you wherever neccessary.
Many Thanks.

Why not go to old buildings and junk yards and steamtrain graveyards and disused power plants and take some photos there Very Happy

I might willingly take a crack at it [as I do quite a bit of photoshopping in my RL].
I'm actually thinking of doing some of that for myself as I'm in the middle of the city with very few interesting parks or environments. Either way, I have to force someone to come along and take photos.

Send a message if you're interested.

Doing something yourself is really not too difficult. Look online for tutorials for turning regular photos into sepia toned, daguerreotype or pinhole camera effects. The tutorials have step by step instructions.

If you look there might be some cool old places you could take photos.

Good ideas Joe and pennydreadful, I do need to get me to a decrepit location, for some reason most of my photos are in my front room, not very conducive to a Steamy atmosphere Laughing
Pennydreadful, I do have a book on how to do things with digital photography but it's a bit like reading Japanese! I have Irfanview and Lunapix so I can put basic effects on, which is good. Do you have any links to any of the tutorials that you mention?
Miss Aetherly, I'd be most grateful for your help until I can get rid of my technophobia. I shall message you Very Happy

Those are great links pennydreadful!

And as much as I like tinkering with Photoshop, the hardcore photographer in me (the part that feels naked without a grey card) would like to mention that starting out with a suitably steamy image (and then perhaps touching it up later) is much easier and more satisfying than extensively photoshoping an image. But of course, one must do what one can with what one has!

Thanks Pennydreadful for those links, the daguerrotype one especially!!

I concur, go find somewhere suitably industrial / victorian / steamy (or preferably all 3!) and then 'shop the results. Will be much easier than trying to steam an obviously modern setting...

I would be quite delighted to assist in helping - I do a combination of 'traditional' and three-dimensional photo-matting that can place you within a virtual scene. As a simple, 'quick and dirty' example, I have a composited an image using a photo of JingleJoe I stole borrowed from the salacious thread...
