Walk, shoot, create. The three components required to execute a proper photowalk.
Recently, Adobe Touch user Chana Messer (@Chanam), and the Las Vegas Adobe User Group embarked on a “Neon Photowalk.” The goal: to stroll through downtown Las Vegas, snap creative photos and create great compositions. While attendees used a wide variety of tools such as DSLR cameras and smartphones to capture inspirational content, Chana’s “weapon of choice” was her iPad, loaded with Photoshop Touch.
Utilizing Ps Touch, Chana was able to capture and create on-the-go effortlessly. “I wanted to capture the immediate value of colors and turn them into a composition. I had my iPad with me, and while we were walking, I was able to upload [photos] to Adobe Creative Cloud, and then alter the images with Ps Touch to create interesting creations,” said Chana.
After the walk concluded, attendees uploaded their images to the Las Vegas Adobe User Group Facebook Page. Chana was kind enough to provide us with not only her own creations, which we’ve compiled into an album found below, but also to share some of her go-to features/tools and tips for new users.
Adobe: What are some of your favorite features in Ps Touch?
Chana: I love the Scratches, Color Drops, Pencil and Graphic Pen Artistic Effects. Usually, I apply these effects on a new layer and then blend in to the original to achieve my desired effect. Also, I like using the Lasso Tool to create simple selections. Additionally, I use the Magic Wand Tool and the Feathering Effect to select certain portions of images with high contrasts.
Have any tips/suggestions for creative individuals thinking about getting Ps Touch?
This app comes with tutorials – listen and try to follow. Try to work on one tool. Also, don’t forget to have fun!
