My Crutch

I rely on the Topaz Photoshop plug-in far too much in my photography, especially in the case of homeless people and buildings. It adds a lot of drama, and turns ordinary photos into eye-catching, distinctive ones.

In the case of buildings, I create an HDR image using three exposures of the same subject. Then I run the HDR image through Topaz, and out it comes. Sure, it's a crutch. But as crutches go, I really like this one.
