(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.
This is the image I used: Before Photograph
Here are some before and after shots:
Nothing is more adventurous to set yourself some goals and just go on the hunt. Well, this is basically what Franck Bohbot, a photographer and artist based in Brooklyn, NY in USA; is currently working on with his House of Books Series.
Lukas Furlan is a Photographer living in South Tyrol, North Italy and studying in Vienna, Austria. He shared some incredible photos of his 9 day trip to the Mount Etna, an active volcano on the east coast of Sicily, Italy. I love how desolate the place looks mixed with the peaceful white snow the photos have a intriguing contrast, definitely worth checking them out.

The universe is a big place. So big that it could give the most priggish person a more human, down-to-earth personality. We're such tiny beings that even our neighborhood, the Milky Way, makes us look like atoms in the expanse of space.
Unfortunately for those living in big cities seeing the Milky Way is a tough task, but for anyone further away from urban madness it's a delight to the eyes. In long-exposure shots we can actually see how enormous the Milky Way is, since we can actually see just of its many arms.
If there is one thing that I really love about cities it's the lights. I just love when regular streets become magical with the darkness contrasted with light. Most often the lights carry a yellowish tone which gives a warm feeling. Rainy nights are even more sublime because the pavements that were once boring and lifeless become alive with all the reflections and nuances in colors.
