The Clarks by yankeedog The Clarks by yankeedog
Here's a plug for Pittsburgh's favorite sons, The Clarks! Shot this on my way to a Pirate game on the Roberto Clemente Bridge. Pirates vs the Cubs and the Pirates won! Sad to say, that doesn't happen too often.

This is actually "funny" seeing it in your gallery. A guy I work with is real good friends with the drummer; Dave, from the Clarks. But whats funny is Dave runs a model train shop in Greenville, PA. Dave; from The Clarks, actually does custom model train work. He has a website too. [link]

Why I found it funny, was all the train pics you have and then seeing the above, just linked them together :-)

LOL! Cool! I like the Clarks. Model trains are cool. I have some N-Guage trains.

I like the ultra-sharp focus on the sign while everything else is blurred. I'd like to see the pedaler of the trike even more blurred, but shallow depth of field has limits. An editor could smudge, but it wouldn't look similar enough to DOF blur, probably.

I did the DOF blur in photoshop. I drew a clipping path around the rickshaw, pasted it to a new layer and then blurred the photo. I'll try blurring the driver. Speaking of rickshaws, check this out, this is a photo of my dad on R&R in Japan during the Korean War: [link] scroll down to the bottom of the page.

In Photoshop if you make a selection of anything, and want to work outside of it instead of inside, you can use

Select > Inverse

And I am silly if you already know about this.

Oh, Years ago when I was try to lasso something zoomed in, I had trouble moving the image to proceed with lasso, and the lasso would break, someone told me to use the space bar and the hand tool will come to help. :)

Yes, that's true Ahmed. For me, it's all about control, I find drawing a clipping path to be more advantageous since it's more accurate and editable. I only use the lasso tool if it a minor edit, I never use it for more complicated editing.

I didn't know Photoshop could do that. One of the reasons it costs so much, I guess.

Why does the rickshaw, or riki-shaw, say "heater"?

Man, that Tripod bar is obtrusive; they really don't want to be ignored.

Photoshop is an amazing tool. If you can get your hands on a student version, it will save you a few bucks.


It must have had a heater on it.

Yeah, I hate that thing. I'm going to move the site to my HendersonGDI.com

I'm afraid my talents are more in writing than visual art. Luckily, writing doesn't need expensive equipment. My little entry-level laptop costs less than PS, and it's all I need to get my art out there. Not that there are a lot of readers 'out there', mostly lookers, I think. Digital painting is something that always appealed to me, but even when I have paint programs, they seem to go unused, but with writing, well, sometimes I just feel compelled to write something when an idea hits me. You probably feel that way about creating images. I used to obsessively photograph things back in the 35mm film days, but don't feel the need anymore, and I've no idea why, cos I loved it at the time.

Ya gotta go with what ya got! I know what you mean, when something moves me, I'm almost obsessed with it till it's done. Hey the 35mm days are still here, have you seen any Lomography? Some really cool stuff is being done with cheap plastic cameras and expired film! [link] I want to buy a Zenit 412LS [link]

Yes, I've seen a lot of work done with Lomos. And don't forget Holgas! Paper backed film! Camera bodies with light leaks. Random wackiness! Fun stuff. :)

Speaking of Zenits and other Russian/Soviet cameras, I really love the old copies of Leicas and Contaxes. I want to own a Zorki 3 [copy of early Leica rangefinder], and probably a FED also.

The magic of film! Then add to that cross processing. I'm surprised there isn't a Photoshop filter to get the effects of the Holga, Diana and Lomo cameras.

Yes, those are very cool! I love Russian camera. I'm always looking at them on Ebay.

And a Kiev; that's the one that looks like a Contax, and the Nikon copies of the Contax. :D Kiev's might be a 'little' cheaper to acquire than Nikon S series.
