Hey Folks,

How’s it going?

Thanks for dropping in.

I’m keeping today’s post brief as I’m busy working on everything for Sunday’s Photoshop Freak Show in London.

So on that note I thought I’d share a new picture with you which is actually one that I shot whilst out teaching at our High5 Workshops over in Germany in January…

Here’s a look at the Before picture so you can get an ideas as to what the out of camera shot was like and what was done in Photoshop

You can check out a larger, higher quality version of the final picture over on my 500px portfolio page here [Link]

As always if you have any questions or comments feel free to make use of the comments section or email me at

Have a good one and I’ll catch you back here tomorrow.

    It might just be me, but the shading on his left hand gives an appearance of being somewhat transparent, something like a ghost hand. The dark band on his knuckles lines up very closely with the top of the box, which magnifies the transparency. The colour of his fingernails is also the same as the yellow of the box interior which, again, adds to the transparency look.
    Nice retouch though Mr. D.

      Hi Kim. Re the shading in his left hand, Jack was ‘cut out’ to put the bgd in so there is no transparency there. Re the nails..they’re close to the interior light of the box so added to reflect that.

    Hi Glyn

    Is this one of the composites that uses a simple blend mode in Photoshop like the Madam Spooky I think it was called.
    Love the rocky background texture, really complements the scene.


    Is it alright to put part of this on my website if I include a reference to this page?
