As I fumble around trying to teach myself photography, I’m noticing more and more how large a part Photoshop plays in professional work. Sometimes it’s small, subtle fixes or other minor changes. Sometimes it’s a day or two’s worth of intense modification. As I begin to summon forth the bravery to learn some of these techniques myself, what I’m most interested in is avoiding making the types of flagrant errors that can be found on Photoshop Disasters.
Now while not a photo, this illustrates the type of mistake I’d like to avoid making. I choose this particular post because I’ve played Left 4 Dead, and it’s hectic/scary enough on its own. Throw a dozen plus fingers on one hand belonging to the only female protagonist and I don’t know whether to run in fear or get excited.
