Cool artistic pictures of your gear

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by reasonbass, Dec 15, 2005.

  1. I just bought a digital camera. And I was just messing around with it taking pics of my amp. I did a pretty cool shot and took it to photoshop and edited to make it more "artistic" I guess you can say.

    Does anyone else do this?
    Here is my pic....
    It think it looks pretty cool.
  2. My fretless Lakland. I was pretty excited when I got it. :)

    [​IMG] sorry that its pretty small.
  6. I did, but I ran it thru a color filtering program that why it has that "cold like green tint" It sort of looks like something outof the movies Aliens. When I ran it thru the tint, it minimized the glow.

    But Ill take one and not filter it, so you can see the the nice tube glow.

    Your pic is gorgeous though, as is everyone elses.

  7. very nice Matt!
    i think i'll take a few shots this weekend, see how they turn out :)

  8. If you have Phototshop you can increase the overall colour saturation and get some really colourful pics.
  9. Thanks for the tip. I'm also curious on your avatar pic. How did you do that one? It's awesome if I may say!

    friggin cool!
  12. Hey thanks. If you're familiar with Photoshop then what you do is make a mask (or selection) around the body of the bass and seperate it from the rest of the photo. Then you increase the colour saturation of the bass body and desaturate the rest of the photo making it essentially black and white.

    I believe Photoshop 4, 5 and later versions all let you do this. Hope that helps. Here's the original shot that I took with my Canon G2 sitting on the floor using the handheld remote. And some more Photoshop fun. :)
