iphone photography

Getting back to simplicity by taking some snaps with my iphone.  By uploading them to "instagram" and using the variety of filters they provide, ordinary shots can be turned into works of art........ Well, maybe not works of art, but they're pretty cool.

new macro collection

Posted on February 23, 2011 at 6:20 AM

I discovered a wonderful new world of macro water photography recently while washing my car.  The fine water spray coming to rest on the roof and windows caught my eye as they glistened in the sun.

Here are some of the results.

I kind of got carried away with the photographing and as a result, the car is still dirty!

All images are available for purchase by clicking on the image and following the prompts or simply by contacting me.

before and after

Posted on January 28, 2011 at 7:27 AM

I thought I might post some before and after shots that might interest you. 

The first was taken from a moving train in Beijing.  I spotted the buildings and thought they looked intersting.  The original shot is nothing special as you can see here.

I cropped a lot out of this image, converted to mono and added a second texture image for mood.  I also cloned out distracitng buildings and ended up with (what I think) looks like something from an old Eastern block country.

The second shot was also taken in Beijing at the Forbidden City.  The original has lots of distractions in it including people, light posts and tunnels. 

First I converted the image into square format, removed the posts, people and tunnels, filled in the holes and added texture and colour layers to create some mood and atmosphere.

I enjoy reworking otherwise ordinary images, changing their original appearance to make them more appealing.

Both of the reworked images are available for purchase in the "image galleries" inside the "simple by design" and "urban art" galleries.
