(via: www.whiteinkblog.com) I am back with a brand new exciting photo-retouching tutorial. In this tutorial I will focus on the hair. Before watching please note that there is a lot of information in this video to absorb, so watch and re-watch areas. I’d recommend pausing it at regular intervals before continuing so that you fully understand all the processes. Some of the areas covered in this video are:
– Colour Correction
– Removing Unwanted Straps and Hair
– Adjusting tonal values
– Grading the image
– Boosting image vividness
– Removing blemishes
– Working with blending modes
There are a lot of techniques and processes that go into each of the above, so if you’ve got a question leave a comment or contact me over at www.whiteinkblog.com and i'll do my best to help.

Here are some before and after shots:
After a while I decided to check out Flickr for some photography inspiration. The first thing I noticed is how cool Flickr looks, very focused on the images, quite different than the web 2.0 days where the community and user interaction was the most important thing. Anyway for this post I want to share some quite stylish black and white photos, with that noir feel. I am using the embed code for photos that Flickr uses so let's see how that looks.
For more information about the photos make sure to click on them and visit the photographers profiles.
Books are an essential tool to designers, it's a source of reference and inspiration and despite the easy access to content through the internet I still believe books are the best medium for inspiration. We usually feature books that are available for purchase but on this post I want to share a really cool Kickstarter project by Joe Rubinstein, it's his book titled Costumed Play - A Fine Art Cosplay Book.
This is an amazing black & white collection of Architectural Photography by the German photographer Nick Frank. The photos are close ups that display different architectural lines and shapes which is very inspiring. Enjoy!
