Not Even a Nibble by Randy Turnbow

It’s true that driving distracted can be hazardous to your health. But distracted fishing?

Base shot: Canon 7D, 1/250 s, f/5.0, ISO-100, 150mm

Fish, claws, shadows, water splashes, teeth, fish-eye all added composites with PS Elements, and final coloring and shading with PS Lightroom.

I am self taught, with an imagination that will not stop. I started drawing as a kid, and dabbled with correspondence art school but never took art in high school or college because I felt it might constrain me. I was wrong, but no crying over spilled milk.

    Only in Texas … ?

    I love this!

  • Ha Ha…the base shot was in Hawaii, but I’m sure these lovely creatures are wandering the Texas coastline! Thanks for visiting, commenting, and the fave Arla!

    BWAHAHAHA … I did something similar but mine’s so crap I didn’t upload it … this is FABULOUS Randy … your big-toothed red-eyed fish is wonderful :))))

  • Lol, it’s never crap Carol, it’s only unfinished work! Truth be known, a piece of me is in the fish…my eye, reversed. I’m like some directors who can’t resist making a personal appearance in their films…thanks for stopping by and sharing!

    You did a very subtle “Hitchcock” on this one Randy, the eye – I would never have guessed ☺

    ha,ha,ha, all in this work is wonderful but what I enjoy the best is the candid, distracted expression on his face!

  • Lol, exactly Maraia, that’s why I had to do something with it. I caught this guy while vacationing in Hawaii, I was up on a balcony and he looked at me like “what the heck do you want?” Thanks for stopping by!
