I love beautiful images, even if they are not concrete representations of a known object. I’ve often used abstracts in graphics programs for worship, simply for the texture, the color, the richness, or emotive feel.
There’s a young photographer who has developed a technique that I’ve not tried, nor have I heard of it.
The results fascinate.
Can you guess what this is?
No matter how many times I see photos of a shuttle launch, it never gets old.
They are similar, but never the same.
Dan Winters, who is in my view, one of the best photographers of our generation, can move between amazing portrait photography and science based photography with ease.
Winters was hired by Time magazine to capture images of Atlantis in June 2011, the last shuttle flight in the program. Those images, along with others, are being used for a new book by Winters, ‘Last Launch.’
Take a look:
God is visual.
Can anyone deny this?
He made all the beauties we see. Many of His actions and accounts involve big visuals. Mount Sinai enveloped in smoke, flame, and lightning comes to mind. The first known rainbow enhanced a big announcement. Fire straight out of the heavens burned up an altar of rocks, along with the water that had soaked it. (Let me tell you, people worshipped after seeing that display.)
There are the vivid visions of Ezekiel and Daniel. Think of the incomprehensible sights John saw on Patmos. Continue Reading…
Who doesn’t love outer space travel and technology?
The geek culture is very close to ‘Star Wars and ‘Star Trek’ because of the real thing. The Apollo moon landing has be ranked as one of the defining moments in human history. For the first time, man walked somewhere besides planet Earth.
If you love space, you’re going to love this video!
A few weeks ago I wrote a post about a portrait I made of my daughter Ally. I described where and how it was made, including a lighting diagram as well. I wanted to share with people the steps I took in the post processing of the image to get the look you see in the image. I also quickly cover using the Noise > Median filter for softening the image a little as well as adding a subtle vignette to the image.
Check out the video after the jump:
A couple of friends in Japan starteed a new project that’s called, “rrrrrrrroll.”
The concept is simple: Explore minimalist animations based on someone or something turning on a single axis.
Here are some of the results:
I love my daughter Ally. She takes after me in so many ways, particularly when it comes to the sarcasm/humor front. She also serves as a model for me whenever the creative juices strike and I want to try out something new with regard to photography.
So I wanted to see what I could do if I needed to use my home office as a makeshift studio space. The room is quite large as it is more a multi-purpose room than a regular bedroom. Still, it was going to be a challenge because it’s not a wide open space.
My goal was to capture a classic kind of casual/beauty image. I also needed to do something to the back wall which was acting as my background. The paint in the room is a very subtle cream color. I knew if I positioned Ally away from the wall, it would darken the background but still wanted it to be lit to create some separation. So here is how I started out:
You remember the Little People Street Art Project from before, but I couldn’t resist sharing some more!
I love these!
