Songwriting - Lieder schreiben

Songwriting is like Christoph Columbus' journey. When you start you don't know where to go to. When you are there you don't know where you are. And when you finish you are surprised and don't remember where you started.

Lieder schreiben ist wie eine Reise des Christoph Columbus. Wenn du beginnst, weißt du nicht, wohin du willst. Wenn du dort bist, weißt du nicht wo du bist. Und wenn du fertig bist, weißt du nicht mehr, wo du angefangen hast.

#Photoshop: Creating a Compelling Photo Composite in Adobe

Creating a compelling photo composite is as much about finding the right assets as it is about the process of blending them together. If you’re unable to capture your own assets, stock image sites are treasure chests for images, as well as inspiration. While hunting for the images used in this issue’s tutorial, I encountered dozens of stock photos that sparked ideas. When I finally stumbled across the images we’ll use, I was so captivated by the brilliant colors and dynamic shapes that I couldn’t wait to begin exploring the possibilities. This level of enthusiasm is key to crafting a composite that stops viewers in their tracks and elicits an emotional response.
