10 steps to shooting a portrait, the experience of Elena Lucan

1. The need to shoot new
Every day I think about how I shoot, what I shoot, and especially about how I haven’t shot yet.
I am inspired by artists, photographers, directors who influenced visual art in general. I watch their work, read the biography and when something catches me, I stop and want to repeat.
Of course, I like the image that needs to be decoded, deciphered, when the question arises: how to take it? Then the task appears by itself – to eliminate gaps in the technique and methods of shooting.

ONLINE ANALOGUE PHOTOSHOP FOR QUICK TREATMENT

In order not to occupy disk space and load the system, I do not install some programs on my laptop, including Photoshop.

For this purpose I use Photoshop online, more precisely, not quite Photoshop, but its online analogue Pixlr. For a quick correction, it has all the basic tools (in the picture above – the vertical panel on the right), as well as many features that are in the usual Photoshop (menu above).
After downloading, the editor offers to open the photo in many ways. You can download from your computer, you can open from the link: Continue reading
