35 Incredible Photoshop Creations That Blur the Line Between Photo and Digital Art Photoshop gets a bad rap these days. The term has become synonymous with something insidious: as if a program could overuse itself… or by itself try to ‘trick’ people into thinking a certain body type is normal. But when we at 500px think of Photoshop, we don’t think of magazine cover models whose skin has been smoothed out of existence and curves have been liquified into some arbitrary ideal. We think of photographers like Caras Ionut, Renee Robyn, Erik Johansson, and Adrian Sommeling — photographers who know how to use Photoshop to create magical scenes that are obviously fictional, and all the more incredible for it. It’s been a while since we’ve showcased that sort of photo-manipulation-magic on ISO, and so we’ve compiled 35 of our favorite Photoshop creations below.
5 Tips on How to Hold Your Camera tutorial This may be a topic that seems basic and easy to gloss over, but have you ever thought about to properly hold your camera? Sure, DSLRs have been designed to give you better and better ergonomics and grip, but when you start shooting with slow shutter speeds or telephoto lenses with no vibration compensation, having the right technique can be the difference between a photo that looks sharp and a photo that has shaky motion blurs.

Raw File Formats Proprietary raw Raw file format (not an acronym) is raw data from a digital camera sensor that has not been demosaiced, meaning that a raw file is only composed of either a red, green, or blue value at each pixel location. Rather than having the camera demosaic the raw data to create a rendered file, saving the raw data allows the photographer to control the demosaicing process with special software that offers control over white balance, color saturation, exposure (to a degree), bit depth, and color space, noise reduction, and even lens correction and other "parameters". This is why these types of software are often referred to as Parametric Image Editing software. Although raw files are much larger than JPEG files, the extra measure of control and potential quality is a worthwhile trade-off for most professional photographers.
