If you’ve attended Photoshop World in the past, you might have heard of Paul Bartell, but for those of you that haven’t, he’s a photographer based out of Phoenix, Arizona. Today, we’re featuring his “No Pressure” image—view the full version here.
1.) Can you tell us a little bit about your photo?
This image is titled “No Pressure.” It was taken in Park City, Utah. While on a bike ride, my wife and I stopped at a landmark named the McPolin Farm. The subject is the dashboard of an old tractor that they have on display. This image was also a finalist for a Guru award in the Photo Retouching category. The original image had the steering wheel cutting through parts of the tractor’s dashboard, I removed it using Photoshop, and utilized other techniques to achieve the final results.
2.) What gear/software did you use to create this image?
The image was captured with a Canon G11 (my put it in the pocket camera), various textures and Topaz Adjust were utilized in the Post processing.
3.) What do you like to photograph?
I photograph everything from landscapes to macro and even a portrait now and again.
4.) How long have you been a KelbyOne member and what made you decide to become a member?
I have been a KelbyOne member as long as I can remember, so I am thinking that it must be at least 10 years. I joined and remain a member of Kelbyone for many reasons but mainly for the training and inspirational content.
