These pictures were NOT taken with a tilt-shift lens.  I found a recipe in Photoshop that works pretty well.

Levitation Photography

Just experimenting.  I feel we have the technique right, just not the right setting.  I'll keep practicing.

Self Portrait, sort of...

So a crossover from last challenge to this one, a photo self portrait.  I think there are some more creative things you could do, so maybe I will experiment more later, but thought this would be a good start.  Have to give Joe Fowler credit for snapping the photo, I unfortunately do not have a pair of superfluous limbs that could operate a camera while I held a camera.  

Previous Challenge - July / August

This month’s challenge “The Necessary Narcissist”! Self-portraits have become a way of life with the plethora of social sites, portfolios and online profiles etc. Lets get creative with them. Create a self-portrait that is a representation and creative expression of you. You can take photos, illustrate, graphic design or sculpt, whatever you want to create a “self portrait”.Just be arrogantly creative.

Something fishy

I am taking an illustration class this fall, Pima Community baby. Anyhow, here is my first illustration. It's a little wacky as per the assignment, but whatev. As embarrassed as I am to admit this, this is the first time that I have ever attempted painting entirely in Photoshop. (OK confession, I did draw the fish by hand with a pencil, but everything else is photoshop)

Creative Collaboration

My son just started school and so we got him a notebook. In it he's filled almost all the pages with drawings of his favorite superheroes. He's inspired me to make this collection of cool color combinations for Superman. Most of them he colored some of them I colored, like the one with blue and yellow. I never knew that Superman would look good with black yellow and red. Some of the green ones were mixes of two or more of his colors. Tons of fun!
