The Power of Selections

Selection Tools are among the most powerful in the Photoshop (PS) and Photoshop Elements (PSE) toolboxes. Selections enable the user to isolate an area to limit changes and edits. The first thing most new users think of is cutting a person or object out of a photo and moving it to another photo.

There are several selection tools in PSE and most have various options. This Video Monday Morning Tip (VMMT) gives you a glimpse at the Quick Selection Brush used in conjuction with the Elliptical Marquee Tool to select an object.

Escondido Street Fair Photos

I spent a few hours at the Escondido Street Fair on Sunday, May 15. The food was terrible but the ligt was wonderfl. It was overcast and drizzly, perfect conditions for beautiful light. Many amateurs are afraid to take their gear out in wet conditions but newer digital SLRs are pretty robust. For Canon shooters, the 7D has weather seals that offer a modicum of protection. That doesn’t mean one can take it snorkeling but a little drizzle certainly won’t hurt it. (This is not a guarantee on my part, any experimentation is at you own risk.) Having said that, I’ve had all my Canon dSLRs out in some pretty severe weather from rain and snow in the Pyrenees to the Eastern Sierras. I’ve photographed sports in a steady rain with nothing more than a plastic trash bag over the body.
