I rarely use Photoshop, but it sure comes in handy when you need to combine images and text. While driving from Jaipur to Agra Ayn Brown and I sat in the back of the bus and created a "Magazine" featuring our local India tour guide, Digvijay (DV for short).
I made the photograph of DV while he was leaning up against a wall at Amber Fort. He was in the shade with some wonderful bounce light illuminating him. The pose was so "GQ" that I had to get it. Using the text tool in Photoshop 7.0 (yes, I'm a bit behind on Photoshop upgrades) I overlaid some text to create what looks like a magazine cover. We presented DV with a printed copy, made a a local one hour photo store while we were enjoying a nice dinner. I think he really got a kick out of it!
