I'm very glad that Linda Zacks, Clare Nicholas and myself were invited to talk about our way of using a scanner. Here is how this featured pages are presented : "How many of you out there have a scanner sitting on your desk? (That’s exactly what we thought.) So when’s the last time you used that scanner? Well, if you’re anything like the following three artists, then you answered, “I’m using it right now.’’ A lot of people will tell you that scanners are for digitizing photographs and slides, but that’s only partof the story. Scanners have the capability to capture just about everything around you — one man’s trash could be that one element that’s missing from your next assignment. Throw in some paint, sandpaper, crayons, paper and other art supplies, and you’ll be creating unique and awe-inspiring illustrations and designs in no time."
Clare Nicholas talks more of flat objects that can be used in a recomposed image, Linda Zacks scanns about everything and reuses these elements in her creations. I explain how I compose my own images. PhotoshopUser is a great magazine that gives lots of tips and tricks, it is only available for members of the National Association of Photoshop Professionals (NAPP).
If you go to the website of the NAPP, you can even ask for a free issue…
