The featured photographer is Beth’s Photography.  She and her friend have been hiking the Pacific Crest trail, one section at a time for the last 10 years.  Along the way Beth has taken many beautiful Photographs, which will be displayed on this gallery page from time-to-time as they come in.  I added some color saturation and sharpening, and put more detail in the photos where the sky was washed out.  Please contact Elsman Imaging if you wish to feature a group of photos at the top of our gallery page.
Occasionally in this spot, I am offering photos to download.  These are yours to keep and use as you please.  They will open in Adobe Acrobat or Reader as a two page PDF.  Hover your mouse over the photo on the right to change images and "click" on the photo to download both images.  Enjoy the photographs........

These are samples of some strange advertisements.  This is a fun way to take a photograph of a person, place, or thing and make it more interesting to look at.  These photographs make use of simple masking techniques, resizing, the type tool, and colored backgrounds.  Everything in these layouts were done from scratch.  I had a lot of fun with the beer bottle labels and they helped me to learn how to put text on a path.  Feel free to contact Elsman Imaging with any ideas that you may have for your photographs to be incorporated into a label, magazine cover, newspaper page, or what ever you can come up with.

I felt that I needed to do something different when it comes to taking pictures of people.  Obviously I love Photoshop and can not get enough of this program.  Most other photographers take the standard issue photographs; weddings, portraits, babies, pets, pregnancies and so forth, but very few are actually doing unusual and creative changes to these pictures with digital software.  I like to experiment with blend modes, structure, and interpretation to come up with something unusual for a person’s photograph.  Sometimes it works and sometimes it does not, but it’s always fun.......................

The last Flash video on this gallery page is a conglomeration of various objects and landscapes, with some photographs of people thrown in.  Most of these photographs have had some degree of Photoshop work done to them, although some have not.  The image of the school house was taken with seven different exposures and combined into a HDR image using a program called Photomatix Pro.  This is a great program for creating high dynamic range photographs and will provide a whole season of entertainment in one’s photographic work.  The price is not bad and here is the link to download it.  http://www.hdrsoft.com/  Watch this page for more galleries in the future.  Happy viewing, Elsman Imaging…………………………
David Garrett Photo
I decided to use the music of David Garrett for the background of these four flash videos.  What he is do- ing with the combination of Rock and Symphony music is something that I like.  I have also always enjoyed the violin and like Rock music with a strong violin base to it.  I will be glad to feature music by request............
