Photographing Rocks State Park (Kilgore Falls) in Maryland – Loaded Landscapes

Rocks State Park in northern Maryland is just an hour’s drive outside of Baltimore, making it a great option for nature photographers living in, or visiting, the city. There are two main features in the park that will appeal to photographers. The first is Kilgore Falls, a beautiful 19-foot waterfall. The second is the King and Queen Seat, a 190-foot rock outcropping that rises about the surrounding forest.

Demystifying Photoshop | Denise Silva | Road Runner Photography Tours

Demystifying Photoshop $9.99


Adobe Photoshop is an extremely powerful post-production tool and was developed for graphic artists, designers, illustrators, and photographers alike. What does this mean? Well, it means that Photoshop has more features than any photographer is ever likely to use for processing photographs. But it also means that this is one of the best platforms to enhance your imagery.

The ability to use Camera Raw with Layers and Masks will enable you to take your images to the next level, whether you just want to enhance a single image or composite multiple images and textures to create an entirely unique piece of art.

The goal of this book is to introduce Photoshop and its features to photographers and to demonstrate how these tools may be used from the photographer’s perspective. Throughout this book, I will use images, and screenshots to demonstrate various techniques commonly used by photographers in Photoshop.
