Photoshop or Not

Pho٠to٠shop - noun or verb?
Today Photoshop has become more than just a term to describe a program for editing photos. It has become a term for describing whether or not a photo has been manipulated to change the appearance from its original state. People frequently use the term "Photoshopped" in this way.

My name is Rob Resnick. I currently work as a Photoshop Artist at Image Studios, a commercial photography studio in Appleton, Wisconsin. In my spare time I enjoy photography, art and the outdoors. My job as a Photoshop artist has given me a new perspective in regards to images that we see nowadays. The line between reality and manipulation is getting harder to determine just by viewing a photo. I have created this blog in attempts to illustrate what can be accomplished with the use of Photoshop.

Senior Photos

I had the "opportunity" to photograph my nephews for their senior pictures recently. I asked them before we went out shooting to think of some areas that would be some cool spots to take their pictures. Of course when I got there they really didn't have much of an idea as to where they wanted to go. As a result, I had to put on my creative thinking hat and come up with some creative shots. I was pretty happy with what we were able to make happen but I thought it might be even more fun to take the shots I had and find some different backgrounds to drop my nephews into. here are a couple of examples of what you can do with a little creativity and the ability to make it happen.
