It's Friday and we would like to share this fun tutorial from Adobe in collaboration with photographer named Jaxson Pohlman. It's about creating a composite dreamscape using two photos in Photoshop. As most of us like photography, it's always nice to add some spark to your pictures with a simple technique. Let's take a closer look.

Let's explore together the North Chile, more precisely into the Atacama Desert. Cool fact, it's a desert that is pretty famous for star gazing even though with its 105,000 km² area. Behind this photography series, we have a Montreal-based photographer (and more) named Jay Kreatica. Let's follow his escape into the endless layers of colours and sand.
A few months back, we've featured Freehand by Craft on ABDZ, it was a tool that allowed you to collaborate in real-time for brainstorming, exploration, presenting and you name it. I've personally used it and it's really a well-built and super useful tool to have around.
As of late, we've have published a series of revisited things from the past on ABDZ coming from manuals, branding items and more. It's somehow quite interesting because the things are stuff that we haven't even known its existence.
We were tipped off on Joule from the genius team at ChefSteps by a legit 'good cook' friend of ours and couldn't resist in posting about this innovative, gorgeously designed instrument to inspire the Michelin-starred chef hiding inside all of us.

Lars Stieger is a freelance designer and photographer from Hamburg, Germany posting some incredible posts on photography and architecture on his Behance profile. Most of them are about architecture or parts of the urban landscape. The difference is the color treatment applied to the photos and of course the capture itself.
Let's take a look at this interaction design & UI/UX project from the folks over Bachoo Design Studio. Their project is called: Kickstagram, an Instagram Marketing Tool. We've seen many Instagram tools out there but a lot of them lack features that will actually make us use it even more. If you remove the UI aspect from Kickstagram that is simple and clean.
I come to appreciate those who only take Black & White Photography. In my opinion, it's a hard style of photography to tackle especially when it comes to the colour, contrast and creative direction. Even though there's a play with the shadows but it's still pretty interesting.
The short film and video art Epic Fail is a really cool motion design project created and shared by Greg Barth on his Behance profile. It is an avant-garde essay that questions how we perceive truth, information and politics, seen through the dual lenses of our real and virtual identities.

Bravo China is a motion design and brand identity project created and shared by Donerzozo on Behance. It's hard for me to understand exactly what it's for, my assumption is that it is for the Bravo TV channel. I might be completely wrong, but the important thing is that the motion design work is top-notch.
We would like to share exciting news from our friends over Figma where they are introducing their newly 2.0 packed with features including Prototyping and Developer Handoff. This is pretty huge! I can't wait to give it a try myself and maybe share my thoughts on ABDZ. Meanwhile, let's take a look at what they offer with real-time collaboration, the end of versioning and more.
Gotta love when you find a unbelievably talented artist you didn't know before! I was struck by the work of sculpture artist Beth Cavener. She not only comes up with the perfect image of animals, but her pieces emote so much beauty and a sense of urgency, it's amazing.
If you happen to have a sweet tooth you may have noticed that chocolate bars are having a moment in the world of packaging design poising themselves as the perfect creative canvas for creative folk to have some fun when it comes to brand identity.
Each month, our friends over Adobe Stock will explore through their photo database what creators have been up to making. For this month's theme, they are looking at how creators have been making things that aren't coming from the ordinary. Deliberately breaking the rules of composition to shock or unsettle us, confronting the hard things. Let's take a look.
