First off, thanks to Trish Woodford. I have never met her but the melds she produces on the Bubble are sublime and a couple of weeks ago she got a rambling email from me asking for… well some moral/artistic support.
Cheers Trish, you’ve been great :)
I love photography. I think I’m pretty reasonable at it and I love the purity of a shot that just is.
But if there’s something on a PC that I adore even more than my games, it’s Photoshop. You can stuff Lightroom as far as I’m concerned, it’s just a library to me. PS is where it happens.
So I meld.
I love it but always have a twang of guilt for altering a shot with textures and brushes and the myriad goodies that can make a ‘piece of art.’ I struggle not with the doing but rather the ‘why’.
I loved the original shot of this kid rolling his wheel in Goa… but the sky and the lighting were conspiring against me. Out of camera it just looked like a quaint shot.
This has taken around 3 weeks. It exists on my PC in many forms, each with its own charm.
You see, I never know when to stop.
Today I did.
I really hope you like it. Oh and please view it large :)
D80, 50mm with a Hoya circ pol. oh and a lot of puff running along the beach…
Thanks to the following whose textures and genius made up the final composite.
