"This is a hybrid. This is a cross, ah, of Bluegrass, Kentucky Bluegrass, Featherbed Bent, and Northern California Sensemilia. The amazing stuff about this is, that you can play 36 holes on it in the afternoon, take it home and just get stoned to the bejeezus-belt that night on this stuff. "
I dont hate FF3 i swear!
It seems like everytime I use firefox and post pictures in a forum, it always puts doubles of the pictures.
and by the time im ready to create the thread im to lazy to open IE and go to NS and logon and do it all over again! lol
Hey, i like those, they were shot at blue mountain??? telus park. thats where i shoot. (i like this one, but the background is a but too dark, you cant see the subject as well but the top in the blue ski is sick)
Shoot strictly in M mode (you might want to go a stop up then what ur camer is metering) , get the good angle, use a tripod, and shoot at the money booter. oh and use the sun to your advantage. take some time and have fun. now get out there and shoot something.
if you use photoshop, the clone stamp tool works wonders if you shot everything on a tripod etc and the shot remained steady, much better than croping IMO, but i haven't done one in a while so thats about it.
and if you do crop and paste, be sure to remove more than is necessary (crop a square containing the rider or a rough outline with some background) so you can line it up with the background image and then remove around the edges until you feel it is right. This also helps keep the shot looking more natural because you don't have missing lines, you don't have to erase right up to the body, and the small details (snow flying from the skis etc) can usually stay in the shot
if the skier is darker then the background (or lighter) you can use the blend mode "lighten" or "darken" I used lighten here (skier is lighter then the sky) lighten means when you overlap a layer, the lighter pixel gets the sopt. its WAY easy. ^did this photo in under 30 seconds.
Did you say "You ski way to much!!"
Is that even possible?"
