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.

Wild Bill!

Sometimes images come through our Post Production Department that just beg for us to do something with them. This image just happened to be one of those. The person in this image is our studio manager Bill or for this shoot, lets call him "Wild Bill". Many of us here in the studio often get wrangled into being test subjects so that the photographer can dial in his lighting and placement before the client arrives. Bill had just such an opportunity a month ago and this is 
one of the "test" shots our photographer took. I took the liberty to create a scene out of the 
Wild West using a landscape shot from one of our other photographers and added 
other elements to complete the scene. Who says work can't be fun? It's all in how you approach it.
