Adobe: Describe a project you are currently working on or have completed with Creative Cloud.
Will: Recently I have been focusing on creating a series of fine art pieces combining illustrations, photography and analog techniques into digital formats to create surrealistic portraits .Using a matte gel transfer technique, I transfer high res images onto fine art paper, canvas or wood.
What was your inspiration behind the project?
During my long commutes around Texas for meetings and work, I find myself always meeting random people walking the city streets. I get inspired by the stories told, the way people view them and the myths that people create of them. I wanted to capture that and find a way to show those emotions in these pieces.
How has the Creative Cloud changed your creative workflow?
Using the Creative Cloud has changed the way I work dramatically. It definitely has simplified everything and makes it easy to keep organized. I can seamlessly access and save progress on projects and pick right up from where I left off on any of my other devices on the go.
What tools specific to Creative Cloud enable you to work more efficiently?
As a freelance graphic artist and being on the go most of the time, having all my files accessible to view, edit and share, sure come in handy. I utilize many of the Touch Apps . One of the more frequent one I use is Adobe Ideas. It allows me to start a vector sketch on the go and access through the Creative Cloud on my PC where I can then continue to edit and complete.

One individual that has unleashed his creativity with Photoshop Touch is photographer Chris Nitz (@Chris_Nitz). We sat down with Chris to get his thoughts on Photoshop Touch, discuss one of his most cherished creations, and uncover some great pointers for you. Check out our full Q&A below!
Adobe: What are your favorite features in Adobe Photoshop Touch?
Chris: Photoshop Touch contains a good amount of features, but the Adjustments panel combined with layers is by far what I use the most. As I am a black and white photography fan, being able to quickly convert an image to monochrome, add in some curves and levels adjustment, apply some sharpening and then upload when done, makes for one insanely quick workflow. Even better, this all happens right in the palm of my hand!
What Adobe Photoshop Touch project are you most proud of and why?
As of this moment, I have to say that the image of the Camaro is the project I am most proud of. This was a seven-layer image consisting of curves, black and white treatment, lens flare, sharpening, and various other tweaks made along the way. I absolutely love how this turned out and how well Photoshop Touch handled all the touches I applied. It was not until I looked at it on my computer that I realized just how much I have grown to love this app.

Meet the man responsible for this fascinating image, 19-year-old Louis Lander Deacon– a photography student whose photo has become synonymous with the Imagine Dragons’ brand. Check out more of this photographer’s work and our conversation with him about his creative process.
