Digital Photography Tip: Finding Photographs

In Gavin Hooey’s latest 15-minute photo challenge, he heads to the coast for some wonderful shots of the beach. But, at least for me, the subject that he’s shooting isn’t nearly as interesting as the way he “finds” photos. He moves and watches and works the scene and changes perspective to discover so many amazing images that many (including me) would probably just walk by…

And he has such fun all the while…!

And, after all that, he shows us how he works with the images in Photoshop to make each a work of art!

It’s definitely worth a watch.
