Glad you think so, thank you for commenting :)
great take on the theme
Thanks…on what theme? :)
maybe concept is a better word? in that the idea of the forbidden fruit is as old as jesus lol but you have taken it it made it your own:) keep em coming please:)
Gotcha ;) I love photomanipulations but I am not sure if RB does…lots of views…not much talk. The artist in me is paranoid lol…
I like this a lot, and it is not often I enjoy this degree of computer artwork – well done
Well I am so glad I could create something you enjoy Graeme. Thank you for taking the time to comment.
when I photograph a tree, I am reusing that tree. It is a stock tree only in three dimensions. So – given that all royalties, credits etc are done and observed, I don’t see any problem with using stock images. (Despite that, for some reason, I can’t get creative except with photos I’ve taken. So go figure!) This is a very good composite image. Nice work.
Thanks. Although not sure what you’re trying to say here…? I would love to use my own images but sometimes I just don’t have the resources or time. I am such a creative being, that if I am not creating I feel lost. So, I figure if I can do other ppl’s quality images some justice, then why not?
Let me try again.
I take a photo of a tree and use it in a different composite picture.You take a stock image of a tree and use it in a different composite picture.
In one sense, we have done the same thing. Purists might argue that you didn’t photograph the original tree, which is true.
However, the tree I photographed GREW the way it did because of other people, because of the elements influencing it, because of the nature of the species and so on. So 98% of my tree picture is down to nature (or God), 1% is my selection of it, and 1% is my photographic ‘abilities’
In your case, 99% is down to others (God, nature and the photographer) and 1% is your selection of the image.
Which is why I see nothing particularly wrong in you using stock photographs (given copyright is observed, royalties paid, credits done etc etc etc).
…and although it is a stock photo I begin with, that certainly doesn’t make the creating of an image easy. I spend days (…longer) on some of my manipulations to create a piece of art work that conveys a message or a mood. The photographers of the stock photos I use are generally very impressed with the final result.
So I guess the purists are right I didn’t take the original photo. So I would say to them, don’t view my art, if you don’t believe in it :)
As for copyright, royalties and credits…I always give credit where credit is due and as for royalites…well I don’t think RB is going to make me a millionaire. I am not on here to make money, rather to share my art and a piece of myself to others… but if it does, I will be sure to compensate the original artists ;)
Shouldn’t my photo-manipulation abilities count for 1%? ;)
