Utilizing Cutouts in Photoshop

Over the years I’ve used many photoshop programs, and my latest is Adobe CS5. I’m having loads of fun with it. Here are a couple of my first cutouts where I used a leaf shape and the bottom of a candle holder to make the shape.

What’s your favorite way to photoshop your photography? I enjoy learning the different ins and outs of a program, and especially like just seeing the different ways you can enhance or make your photos look. Sometimes though, I just enjoy straight out of the lens.

I have to add that the tip I used to make the cutouts was taken from a tutorial at http://www.thecoffeeshopblog.com. She shares some great ideas on her site.
