Using Filters To Create Fine Art Prints


Country Farm House Canon EOS D30 digital camera, 28-70mm @ 58mm, f/2.8, ISO 100, f/7.1 @ 1/8,2160 x 1440 pixels, Fine image quality, 2.3MB .jpg

The photo of the country farmhouse shown in Figure 31.1 was taken in Virginia on a freezing, rainy day. One of the neighbors told me some local folklore about the house. The story is that the house contains some rather significant distillery capabilities. The color of the laundry is a coded message that tells what is brewing and invites friends to drop-in for a drink. I don't know if the story is true, but I wouldn't knock on the door to ask!

Anyone who takes photographs knows that you can try as hard as possible to take great photos with each click of the exposure button. Yet, later you find out that you didn't get the shot you had hoped to have. One of the exciting things about using a digital image editor such as Photoshop 7 is that you can often fix those not quite right photos. Or even more — you can apply a half-dozen filters and end up with a good print you are pleased to have made. This technique shows how a few commonly used filters can be combined to end up with an image that makes a pretty good print.
