TBT: New Orleans 1915

The image comes from the National Archives and shows the French Market in New Orleans with carts and stalls. Note the two nuns, Ursuline I imagine, in the front right. The Ursuline convent was & is  very nearby on Chartres Street though it is now a museum. 

There are many interesting images of US cities on that page of the National Archives website. Check it out!

Tuesday Tutorial- Make A Pencil Drawing from a Photo

Yesterday, I read a tutorial on making a sketch /pencil drawing from a photo. I've done this before but these directions were quite clear so I thought I'd share them. In PSE and PSCC, there are many ways to do the same thing. See how you like this method!

The layout I made shows the pencil sketch in the center photo. I also added a copy of the original photo underneath the inverted photo when I was making that center photo and used one of the blending modes plus an adjustment mask to include some of the color of the shrimp.

I hope you have fun testing this technique out! let me know what you think about it.
