Thor: Son of Bathsgard by Randy Turnbow

Featured Art Universe, Hat Heads, A goofy house, You got it we want it, Superbly Visual, Pouts, poses and portraits, The virtual museum, The group gallery of Art and photography, Absolute Clarity, Addicted Photographer

My special Valentine was out of town for Valentines Day, so I figured I would create a special portrait for her return. A self-portrait with only minor corrections of color, noise, shading, not a layering job.

Canon 7D, ISO-400, 28mm, f/9, 1/13 sec

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.

    Hey there, Randy! Been a while! So nice to see your work on my feed ( been MIA, on and off for a month or so.) This is a gift any woman would swoon over! Your props are excellent!…you headgear, what can I say? Fascinating, yes, that would be the word! And…the ‘Come Hither’ look is very special as well! Now….I am just trying to figure out just where you are…from your title I would assume it is the bathtub ( very romantic)..but, it also looks like a washing machine or ( so sorry) a toilet! Your sense of humor, along with your vivid imagination and technical skills always make for a wonderful, fanciful and fun image! I love this piece!!!

  • Ok, I appreciate the long comment Karen, but I literally LOL’d at end. Yes, it’s the bathtub, hence the title. I actually used a suction cup device to attach the camera to the shower door. Dropped the shutter remote in the tub during the shoot, hope it still works. Anyway, I get my superhero props from my grandson who is well supplied, although I’m running out of characters. Thanks again Karen!
