For those of you who don’t know who Joel Robison is, kindly crawl out from under your rock and check out his work. (Is there internet under your rock? HOW ARE YOU EVEN READING THIS!?!?) … Joel is an absolute POWERHOUSE of talent, creativity, imagination, encouragement and he is just an all around super nice guy. Joel and a couple of my other photographer friends Kristina and Anton were visiting for a weekend so obviously we did multiple photo shoots. Duh.
We already know photographer Erik Johansson for his dreamy photo manipulations such as Full Moon Service or the Mirrored Lake Project.

He illustrated this moment in a mesmerizing photomontage, and he takes you behind the scenes of the photo shoots he did in order to create the final image.
Photo manipulation lets you create all sorts of imaginary worlds and situations and let your creativity go wild. Justin Peters is a young digital artist from Germany, who creates his own imaginary worlds using stock photos and his extensive Photoshop skills. Pablo Picasso’s quote “Everything you can imagine is real” is his motto, and his imagination sure is vivid! DIYP chatted a bit with Justin about his work, and we bring you some of his imaginative, dreamy creations.
Gone are the days where a photographer had to invest hours creating a look or developing a style. And when I say “gone are the days”, you know that I will discuss either A.I or Blockchain. It’s A.I. this time.
NVIDIA just released a new tool called FastPhotoStyle which takes a visual style and applies it to a photo. But how do you define a visual style? Easy, with another photo which has the style you want.
Graphic Designer Randy Lewis creates quite an unusual and fun series of image manipulations. The artist takes simple, everyday objects and blends them together, creating something new and unordinary. The result of his creativity is a series of clever and witty images. They’ll make you look twice, and they are certain to put a smile on your face.
When compositing, saturation is one of the more difficult things to really judge with the naked eye. It can be difficult to get things just right, and we can waste hours tweaking things until we get something we’re happy with. Sometimes, we just need a little assistance.
That’s where this quick Photoshop tip from digital artist Antti Karppinen comes in. With the two images on your canvas, all you need is a single adjustment layer to show you the saturation levels throughout your image. Then you can adjust with confidence, knowing that they’ll match perfectly.
Here is a quick little tip that can save you hours and hours of color matching in photoshop. Surprisingly, it does not involve reviewing real colors and matching them.
Digital artist Antti Karppinen just sent us this tip, and I wish I knew this year ago, it would have saved me so much time trying to match colors of various objects in photoshop. Antti tells DIYP how the magic works:
“What would a 5-year old you think of the person you are today?” I’ve seen this question on the Internet many times. But young photographer Conor Nickerson has raised this question to a new level and gave a different sort of an answer. He got to hang out with his childhood-self! With some help from Photoshop, of course.
Conor’s Childhood Project features himself photoshopped into his childhood photos. He wanted to recreate some childhood moments that only remain a distant memory frozen in the photographs. And with some patience and Photoshop skill, he did a really amazing job.
