Artist's Description

WHEN I TAKE A PHOTO INTO THE DIGITAL DARKROOM, I NEVER KNOW WHAT I AM GOING TO END UP WITH UNTIL I SEE THE IMAGE AND THAT IMAGE TELLS ME WHAT IT IS. THAT CAN TAKE HOURS SOMETIMES. THIS SHOT OF ONE OF MY FISHING HOLES STARTED OUT LOOKING PRETTY BLAND, IT HAD GOOD COMPOSITION, BUT NO REAL COLOR TO IT. THE SKY WAS A GREY TONE AND THE GREENS ON THE REEDS AND VEGETATION WASN’T VERY DISTINCTIVE. SO WITH SEVERAL FILTER CHANGE EXPERIMENTS AND ABOUT 25 MINUTES TIME, I CAME UP WITH THIS IMAGE OF MY “FISHING HOLE ON THE THIRD OUTER MOON”. MOON OF WHAT PLANET?, I’M NOT SURE, BUT BY THE BACKGROUND IMAGE, IT LOOKS LIKE IT’S A HUGE SUCKER, WHAT WITH THE STORMS IN THE ATMOSPHERE LOOKING LIKE THEY DO. THIS FINAL IMAGE WAS ACHIEVED BY CHANGING THE COLOR SATURATION OF THE ORIGINAL PHOTO AND POSTER EDGING THE PHOTO BEFORE CHANGING THE IMAGE COLORS BY INVERTING THE COLOR SPECTRUM. I ALSO ADDED ONE OF MY OWN MOON SHOTS TO GIVE IT A SCALE TO GO BY. THAT WAY THE BACKGROUND PLANET LOOKS LIKE IT IS ACTUALLY THERE AND VERY LARGE. THE COLOR SATURATION CAUSED THE STRIATIONS IN THE SKY, INVERTING THE SPECTRUM CHANGED THE SUN TO DARK AND EXAGGERATING THE TONES OF THE ALTERED SKY WAS CAUSED BY THE SATURATION AMOUNT. PART OF THE OVERALL AFFECT WAS ALSO ACHIEVED BY EQUALIZING THE EXPOSURE IN THE IMAGE OPTIONS. BUT, I SEE THAT HOME MADE FISHING POLE HOLDER STUCK IN THE BANK AND I WANT TO GET OUT MY FISHING POLE AND TRY FOR A CATCH.
