An Oldie but Goodie

Fixing Critter Eyes (both 2 & 4 legged)

I was planning to produce several more Photoshop Elements videos but couldn’t come up with a topic or theme. So, I’m recycling a video that, according to my logs, was very popular when it was first uploaded.

Everyone has taken photos of Fido or Fluffy with weird green or white eyes. This is the animal form of red-eye. This technique can be used to recreate a more realistic result than that nasty old Red Eye Removal Tool in PSE. For anyone who has never tried the Red Eye Removal Tool, you’re not missing anything. It simply replaces the red with another color. Unless you’re very precise or very lucky, the new color will not match the real eye color.

Using this method, you’ll actually replace the eye with a good eye from another photo.

Female Assistant Needed – Friday 7/30

I need a female assistant (read as “slave labor“) to hold reflectors, position & adjust flashes, keep track of equipment and otherwise help me during a beach shoot. The shoot will be early morning and/or late afternoon, Friday, 7/30 at Oceanside Harbor. The model is Tylor, the young lady I photographed a few weeks ago but this time we’re doing an Ava Gardner look on the rocks at Oceanside Harbor. I need a female since you might need to brush back her hair, adjust her bathing suit straps or otherwise work very close to her. Shoot me an e-mail ASAP if you can help.
