Pas de deux ~

Digitally manipulated photographs, again using a watercolor filter and extreme color saturation. The original photos were of plastic film over a window; the film had developed creases (the antler-like shapes).

Two perspectives ~

The top photo, of a brick facade in downtown Paducah, Ky., is the original. The second one is with Photoshop’s anti-distortion feature applied (inexpertly). Not that either one of these photos is particularly good, but I’m not sure I prefer the “fixed” version, which I gather mimics the effect of a shift-tilt lens. Canon PowerShot S40.

Plumage

Sometimes an unsharp photo can be turned into an interesting abstract with the help of a digital filter—in this case, a watercolor filter—tight cropping, and some color manipulation. The original photo is a small detail of the plumage of an unidentified bird at the Denver Zoo.

A new leaf ~

I finally redesigned my photography website and it’s now live. Readers of this blog will find some photos that I’ve posted here, but also lots of older ones. These images were taken with a wide range of cameras. Some of the oldest were digitized from negatives; others were taken with a digital SLR, with a variety of point-and-shoots, with my new 4/3 Olympus, and with my iPhone. I hope you enjoy the website!
