Covid-19, what you need to know.

The world is dealing with Covid-19 at the moment, so I thought I’d share this informative video. I also think it is important that we all try to maintain a good emotional state and try not to panic. Easier said than done I know but I think it is important that we do our best in this trying times.

A big thank you to the experts and the producers of the video.

Do you need a Graphics Tablet?

graphics-tablet-1964816_1920

People generally ask me if you really need a graphics tablet for post-production in photography or digital art. I’ll be frank, you do. Yes you can get away with not using one initially; say for post-production in Lightroom and even Photoshop. Over time however you will notice its limitations. For digital art in particular you just can’t get very far.
Why? The main reason is precision. You just can’t be precise with a mouse.  They also offer what is called pen pressure which can be particularly useful when you are painting i.e. the harder you press the pen the thicker you lines or vice versa, with a mouse all you get is an even line/stroke when painting. You just can’t do very much when shading with a mouse. Yes a graphics tablet takes a bit of getting used to, especially if you are a traditional artist/painter but the potential is limitless. So get one and start practicing.
If you plan on working in Lightroom exclusively a graphics tablet may not seem as important. I use both Lightroom and Photoshop for my work and I can say that a graphics tablet greatly helps my workflow. Getting used to one may take you a few weeks of consistent practice, depending on how much you practice, but stick with it.
I use a Wacom tablet and it gets the job done, I’ve been using my current one for about 2 years and I don’t feel the need to change it. So depending on the one you purchase, they do last a long time. So get practicing and thank me later.

Mr. Papishe

My name is Seun Ogunde but you can call me Papishe (pronounced papyshey) where did that come from ? that’s a story for another day.) Remind me later to tell you.
I’ve been putting this a way for a long time, although it seems where ever I go everything seems to point in this direction. I’m not a blogger in any way, so excuse me if you are reading this and it makes you cringe.  I consider myself an artist and photographer in that order ? I think so. But to be perfectly honest I flip them around from time to time.
Its  purpose is to share my ideas on this journey of mine, may be you’ll learn something on the way great if not may be I’ll trigger something on your journey that eventually leads you on your right path wherever that may be.
Its been said that sometimes you have to make yourself vulnerable if you truly want to be genuine about what you do. This doesn’t come naturally but I’ll try.
So welcome and lets go!
