Beware That Which Looks Easy

As the development of these photos comes about, I begin to add more techniques and avoid previous ones just to experiment and see what happens. Many of my photos take 4-8 hours to produce which surprises many people. It means a lot of time using applications such as Photoshop, Illustrator, Apophysis, and others. The photos are all originals, copyrighted by me. They look outstanding when framed and at present I have three of them being submitted to a juried show in Orlando.

Mother Nature Creates

 More of the "Mother Nature Series"
This photo has the addition of a fractal application (vector images created using Apophysis) The use of lighting techniques and masking are used extensively in these photos.
Mother Nature creating stars uses smoke brushes to obtain this effect. More masking and manipulation was used in this piece.

 This approach was a bit different than the others as I used glowing lines that were created in photoshop first and then applied to the photo. Lighting effects again were utilized.
