From my weekend trip to LA last weekend...
nice pictures, love it. used to live close to manhattan beach. miss the beaches. but don't miss the traffic and gas prices.
How did you add your signature to the frame? I like the look of it. Can that be set as a photoshop action so it goes onto every image that I open in Photoshop?
Signed a blank sheet of paper with a black sharpie. Scanned it in with a flatbed scanner, boosted contrast, inverted, selected with the magic wand tool, cut and pasted to a new PS document with a transparent background. Next I built an action that pastes it onto my images in its own layer, and then I use the object move tool to position it where I want it.
Flatten and you're done.
Beautiful black and whites... I really love the second, the contrast, composition and the gradual shading on the ground... love it!!
I like the first one a lot. and the second one.
