Darkroom manipulation The term originates in the photographers dark-room, and sadly I am old enough to have literally "dodged and burned" photos under the enlarger! An "enlarger" is simply understood as a projector. It beams light through a negative and onto photographic paper. In much the same the way the lens of the camera "printed" the light onto the ...

Just to round out the answers so far, Billy Kerr found two early references to "dodge" in a photographic capacity in 1883 and 1889. A manual of photographic chemistry : theoretical and practical by Hardwich, T. Frederick (1883): An important advantage in this process is the following : That although it is one entailing the operation of a so-called “ ...

Is there a simple and accessible workflow for designers to produce this type of holographic design? The process is pretty simple. Contact a provider. Ask for the specific format. Provide all the documentation needed to have the record on who asked for the specific holo. Pay the fee. Receive the product. Of course, the limitation is the fee. A hologram is ...

This will look more psychological analysis than a graphic design one. I've designed all of them You answered yourself. It is design, not photography. I have a fear that I might stay behind other Graphic Designers. Everyone on the planet will stay behind another colleague in some respect, so, no big deal here. many times I assume that actual ...

You could check the image orientation in Windows by right clicking an image file, select Properties, and open the Details tab. Not sure if you're using a Mac but I would suspect there will be something similar. The Dimensions property will show the horizontal side (on the left) and the vertical side (on the right). So, if the horizontal size is the biggest ...

I would use Adobe Camera RAW for this. Even though you only have a JPEG which is less than ideal, you can convert the layer to a Smart Object, and use Adobe Camera RAW as a filter. The beauty of using ACR as a filter is that it's non-destructive and you can go back and tweak it as much as you like. Example showing tweaks made in ACR Then back in Photoshop ...

I guess this is a JPG file, you do not have any RAW file. Your camera has already done its best to make it not look right, but fit into the limited brightness range which can be shown in normal computer screens. Unfortunately the standard JPG generating process in the camera hasn't understood that not so perfect lens and image sensor spread diffuse light ...

According to dictionary.com: ORIGIN OF DODGE First recorded in 1560–70; of obscure origin It means to evade or avoid, as in "to dodge/evade the ball in a game of dodge-ball" or avoid as in "to dodge/avoid a difficult question" In our darkroom we used to call it "blocking" the light, so the term "dodge" in Photoshop was quite foreign to me until I ...

I think this type of work generally falls under the broad field of 'graphic design', but I would also add it kind of touches on the lower end spectrum of the field. I mean, you are clearly solving some problems there, creating compositions that communicate ideas, but this social media work has a very short life span and is generally paid in bulk by clients, ...

You have put together compositions which have photos, a little text and maybe some drawings, too. The results can be said to be graphic designs as soon as they are not random, but try to present something or lift something up - something that you want to tell or your customer wants to tell. They are not designs if there's no purpose. A purpose can be to show ...
