Artist's Description

WHILE RETURNING FROM FISHING ON GRIZZLY ISLAND IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA ONE DAY, I STOPPED ALONG SIDE OF A DUCK POND ON A STRETCH OF ROAD CALLED THE BOWLING ALLEY. BECAUSE IT IS 1.5 MILES LONG AND RUNS BETWEEN TWO DIFFERENT DUCK CLUBS. ANYWAY, THE SURFACE OF THE WATER ALONG THE EDGE OF THE ROAD WAS COVERED WITH ALGAE. SO, I TOOK SEVERAL PHOTOS OF THE DIFFERENT COLORS OF ALGAE IN THE WATER AND TRIED SOME DIFFERENT FILTER CHANGES ON THEM TO SEE WHAT WOULD HAPPEN. BELIEVE IT OR NOT, THIS SHOT “STARTED OUT AS SURFACE SCUM”, IS THE ONLY DIGITAL ART I’VE MADE OUT OF THE ALGAE SO FAR. I CAN ONLY WONDER WHAT WILL COME OF THE NEXT ATTEMPT AT ART FROM SCUM. I’VE BEEN HAVING SO MUCH FUN IN THE DIGITAL DARKROOM THAT I HAVE TOO MANY IDEAS WORKING AND LITTLE UNDERSTANDING OF SOME PROGRAMS. BUT, AT LEAST I CAN ALWAYS FALL BACK ON ADOBE PHOTOSHOP ELEMENTS, THAT’S WHAT I DO MOST OF MY ART WITH ANYWAY. HOPEFULLY, ONE DAY, I WILL BE AS GOOD AS SOME OF THE OTHER DIGITAL ARTISTS ON THE BUBBLE. THIS ORIGNIAL IMAGE OF SCUM WAS TAKEN WITH MY CANON EOS KISS REBEL 300D AND MY QUANTARAY 70-300MM LENS. THE FIRST SHOT OF SCUM WAS TAKEN WITH THE LENS ZOOMED OUT TO 300MM TO GET A GOOD SHOT OF THE MUK AND SCUM. SINCE IT DIDN’T LOOK THAT GREAT AS A SCUM SHOT, I USED ABOUT 35 DIFFERENT FILTER TO COME UP WITH THE BLUE SPIRAL IMAGE. THEN I TOOK THAT SPIRAL IMAGE AND I CUT AND PASTED IT IN DIFFERENT LAYERS. IT ALMOST LOOKS LIKE YOU CAN REACH INTO THE MIDDLE OF THE IMAGES.
