New York-based photographer Martin Schoeller loves to make us laugh! Take a look at his celebrity portraits of everyone from Quentin Tarantino to Chris Rock and you'll notice a common theme running throughout his work. They're wonderfully wacky! Having worked as an assistant for Annie Leibovitz from 1993 to 1996, Schoeller has the guts to create dramatic scenes that call for his subjects to work outside the box. He's been a staff photographer at The New Yorker since 1999 and his work has appeared in magazines like Rolling Stone, Esquire, Vogue and Vanity Fair. No doubt it's his unique flair that captures our attention and has us eternally wondering what he's got next up his sleeve.
I cannot believe it has taken me until now to share these!!

I love Photoshop techniques that offer all kinds of possibilities for experimentation—and the following tutorial is a perfect example of one of those techniques. In this issue, we’re going to take a portrait and replace the person’s image with text (think 2009 Grammy posters). Pick a portrait that offers good contrast—a photo that’s very dramatic and dark probably won’t work as well. I’ve had the best success with straight-on head and shoulder shots, but again, feel free to experiment with all types of photos. For the best results, choose a photo that has a light background (or select the background around the person and make it lighter). Create a new document (File>New) in a size that’s smaller than your photo: the specifics don’t really matter.
Creating PICTURE Frames in Corel Photo-Paint, versions 8+ by David Mutch, © January, 2003 Part 1: Creating a basic Picture Frame. Most pictures you hang on your walls or are displayed in galleries have Picture Frames. These enhance the display and help direct the eye towards the artwork or photo in the centre of the frame. Picture frames are inherently different from the digitally created IMAGE FRAME effects we looked at in an earlier tutorial and are generally created out of wood, metal, plaster, card or plastic.
