Bokeh and Vintage Photoshop Video Tutorial

I immediately fell in love with ScreenFlick when I knew it was capable of recording my full computer without any time limits ! I've been searching for this program for ages. the only bad news is that I'm stuck with a watermark because I'm being a cheap-ass and I did not buy the full version (well my dad refused to do so because he never trusts online credit card transactions except from the Apple Store)..

Anyhow, since many of you kept asking me on the Photoshop effects, I'm dedicating today's post for TWO Photoshop tutorials (I'm on holiday, and I'm more-or-less unoccupied).. I suggest you to watch it fullscreen so that you can see where the mouse is better. Good luck trying ! just ask me in the comments/email, if there's anything you're unclear about..


BOKEH IMAGE TUTORIAL

VINTAGE IMAGE TUTORIAL


some random pics throughout the week I took using a self timer.. found out that its MUCH easier to work with a point and shoot timer feature than a DSLR because its hard for it to find the focus point when I'm not in front of the camera..

motor
this was my first successful freeze frame shot ! i plan to get better at doing these photos.. shot this from inside the car, which is why there are some glass glares on the top right corner..


some other stuff i'd like to share :
got another interview from Fashion Jinx ! Chris was nice enough to let me do a video interview as well a text interview :D i was really excited as that was my first ever video interview.. you can read more here..
fashion jinx

and i also won the giveaway hosted by Come Over to the Dark Side We Have Candy ! So happy because this is my first giveaway that I won (yeshhh my luck is that bad this year..) anndddd that i'll be able to choose my own piece of clothing from Westrags for the gift !

i do hope April is a good month ahead for me :D 2 goods in the first 7 days is not bad..

Hi Michelle! What lens do you use now? I suggest you get the 70-200mm F2.8 lens. I use a 50mm F1.8 lens for my bokeh and portrait shoots but since you are very good in doing bokeh in photoshop, that is not advisable anymore. My working lens are the following: 24-70mm, 70-200mm and the 50mm. They are the best in my opinion. xoxo

Yayyy for photoshop tutorials! Just what I need at this moment. Now 1st,need to go purchase photoshop:)

Congrats on your interview and also hurray for your 1st giveaway win,don't worry gorgeous your luck will just be even better from now on.

Awww and you're really sweet with your latest comment you left me. Thanks so so much for your encouragement with blogging. Yeaa,I try to blog as often as I can but the hard part for me is catching up with other blogs and comments. I'm lazy but not anymore but at the same time,work takes up my time at times. urghhhh

But I can make it all happen,slowly I guess.

Missing you :)
