Beware The Second Coming by SquarePeg

Currently unavailable for purchase

The fourth in the Crown Of Thorns series. This was going to be the last, but I may do some more with Dan from different angles and some other poses, so there may be a few more in the near future.

I think this is the most powerful of the series. Though Jesus is about love and hope I can’t help but think that sometimes he might be more than a little displeased with how things have gone since the last time he was here in physical form. Hence the word “Beware” in the title.

I found creating this series an uplifting and invigorating experience and I believe that it helped to open my heart to Jesus and paved the way towards my becoming a Christian.

Layers with the high pass and gaussian blur filter used and blended using various blends with two texture layers (the same cracked glass layer rotated 180 degrees) and a border.

I’ve been taking photographs since 1997 and I still love it. After a brief dislike of photomanipulation I now use Photoshop extensively on a majority of my work. People are my favourite subject and I’m always on the look out for new models, so drop me a line if you’re interested! :)
