Example of digital manipulation


I shot this image of myself quite a while ago. I dropped an image of a city burning behind my image; added a layer mask to let it show through in the right places; then added a color overlay to cast a slight red glow over my face and and presto I am in a new location.

Transparent Victory

Photo of glass chess piecesThis was a very enjoyable shoot. I only had access to the glass chess set for a weekend and had some specific ideas I wanted to explore. I know the metaphor of the shot is very obvious with the fallen king. It is still a nice shot that was fun to do.

In this shot I lit the chess pieces from behind with a small softbox. No need for flash I just used the model light mode on the studio light. The photograph was shot using a Nikon D-70 ISO 200 at 1/50 sec, F/8 on a nice sturdy Manfrotto tripod.

A trip to the zoo

St. Louis Zoo

I took a trip to the zoo a few years ago and never got around to doing anything with the images I had shot. This is one of the few with which I had experimented. It has been so long I had to search for this animal online. I believe it is an African Antelope known as a Kudu. I am not 100% certain though since this animal is a lot smaller than other images I found. This is a simple creative use of a mask, custom brush and artistic filter. Makes for a nice wildlife greeting card.
