My favorite artist contemplates Rothko’s No. 210/No. 211 (Orange).
About the exhibit: See the Light: The Luminist Tradition in American Art. More about acquiring the Rothko.
I’ve been dabbling in the Dan Margulis’s Picture Postcard Workflow since serendipity landed me in Dan’s session at Photoshop World Boston in 2006. Dan’s methods and his teaching style are unique in their depth, usefulness, and results. They’re not easy to pick up casually, though. Davide Barranca posted this on
Dan’s Color Theory Yahoo Group, and I’m linking it here for my own reference as much as anything.
Actually I got carried away with it and wrote a four articles series (called Decomposing Sharpening) on that very topic on my blog. Not that all that bandwidth is required to understand what I’m doing – let’s say I’ve happily dug into the subject. A schematic index is as follows:
PPW Sharpening, Halo Maps, Blending Modes
Why the obvious (Darken / Lighten, double Smart Filters) fails
Setup for RGB/CMYK images (Subtract adjustment layers, cascading blending modes)
#4 The Lab way
Setup for Lab images (Smart filters, visualizing Threshold, Blending mode boosters)
David Silby at Edge of the American West:
In two paragraphs, FDR sums the case for government regulation and oversight, the case for government full-stop, better, I think, than just about anyone, and certainly anyone recently.
An interesting and apposite post, but primo for the category “FDR pwns everyone infinity no backsies.” That’s a blogging category I can get behind.
