I'm playing with some ideas for retouching some of the fire fighter's images that were shot on black... This is just a rough sketch... I didn't spend too much time on selections, or placements... I'm mostly playing with my approach to layers and textures to figure what my final attack would be. It's a lot of fun. I don't know if it will work for the calendar, but I envision a gritty, grungy, movie poster look.
Remember the days when working with 2 layers in photoshop could take half an hour to render a simple change? I don't mean to sound like an ol' geezer, but I can't say how much I appreciate how far computer speeds have come! A fast computer just puts the fun back into the game!
