A STROLL THROUGH PHOTOSHOP
Experimenting is fun. Whether it is music or writing or mucking around in photoshop, when simply experimenting and exploring the instrument, you end up teaching yourself. And what you end up with is your own style. This is almost always the best way to approach art. I have never covered a song, I pick up my sticks or my bass or keyboard and just mess around until I find what I hear in my head, or something I like. My drum-playing isn’t technically correct, I’ve never had lessons, BUT, I’d much rather be an interesting drummer than a boring one.
The same applies to writing. I write and write, and write some more, experimenting and trying new things.
Experimentation and self-exploration can set us free. Without these important aspects of art, we wouldn’t have much to admire.
Why Am I babbling? I’m not sure, I guess it is because I messed with these photos in photoshop for hours to turn them into something very different from the original photo. One I hope to use as a demo cover, but we’ll see. But these pics are a perfect example of experimenting, going wild and watching what happens, even if I have no clue about photoshop. Fun call still be had, the boundaries are limitless.
Feedback is appreciated is appreciated as always.
OH, and see if you can guess what the top picture was originally! 🙂
I am thinking of using this as a demo cover. Not much room for the band logo though
Perhaps a little too much time tinkering in photoshop this time around…
…. But it isn’t wasted time. This one is my favourite so far
