Ch Ch Ch Ch Cheetah!

Applying those Neural Filters to my 10-year-old Cheetah photo, I’ve been having fun! The following photos are of the 80s-created animals.

They’re Great

I’ve started fooling around with Photoshop’s art style filters. Below is my starting photo, an old shot of a tiger in the Zoo. The art style filters are “Neural Filters” in the Filter drop-down box. Then select “Style Transfer, and select the different styles in the Presets. The last step is to play around withContinue reading “They’re Great”

I Don’t Think You’re Ready For This Jelly!

I love watching jellyfish, they are graceful and ethereal creatures but they do sting. Best to view it from afar, or in an aquarium. The below photos are from an aquarium but they have been edited to capture the full effect. The jellyfish were in a blue-lit tank, blue light keeps the algae away andContinue reading “I Don’t Think You’re Ready For This Jelly!”

Flying Shark!

I visited the Virginia Beach Aquarium in Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA. Above is one of their sharks in the giant saltwater tank; this is a Sand Tiger Shark, which isn’t the same as a Tiger Shark. For this shot, I used some new camera gear, a rubber/flexible Lens Hood that removes reflections from glass, likeContinue reading “Flying Shark!”

Do I like Monet because he painted water lilies, or do I like water lilies because Monet painted them?

I watched a live-action non-Disney version of Cinderella many years ago, all I remember was the song Prince Charming sang. Do I love you because you’re beautiful or are you beautiful because I love you? Hence the title is about my love for Water Lillies and Monet, and yes I’ve been to his house inContinue reading “Do I like Monet because he painted water lilies, or do I like water lilies because Monet painted them?”

Popcorn Seeds

Forced Creativity part 66 I have a silicone bowl and lid to pop my popcorn, which lets me decide how much popcorn I get and cuts out the greasy oil. I always have a few un-popped popcorns, just like bag popcorn, and decided to save the seeds. I’ve been collecting them in a mason jarContinue reading “Popcorn Seeds”

What’s Up With This Photo?!

The below photo is of a knarled bush; this was in a rest area off the interstate in Utah. The interstate (motorway, highway ) has rest areas at different intervals for those who don’t live in the US. Some are just public toilets, vending machines, and a grassy area for dogs. To me, this bushContinue reading “What’s Up With This Photo?!”

Partical Travel Tips

Part two Get a large UBS Wall Charger, and by large, I mean you can plug 4 or 5 USB cords into the charger. It never fails that the hotel has only one free electrical outlet, and you need to charge five items. Phone, camera, iPod, Kindle, headphones, etc. Double bag it. If I know,Continue reading “Partical Travel Tips”

I Want To Put On My Boogie Shoes!

The polar vortex is heading my way, so I’ve ordered some items for still life photos to keep me busy I took some poorly lit shots of red ballet shoes and a black tutu. I then processed the photo into artwork using Fotor Photo Editor. Enjoy! Let me know if you have a request, likeContinue reading “I Want To Put On My Boogie Shoes!”

A Rose by any other name.

It’s Valentine’s Day so of course, I played around with roses. I purchased a rainbow bouquet, cut off the blooms, and used blue tac to stick the blossom upright on the pink background. Then I took some extreme closeup shots of each rose then used the premade filters in photoshop camera raw to create theContinue reading “A Rose by any other name.”

Don’t Touch My Tomatoes

If you are allergic, don’t like, or shouldn’t eat tomatoes, and miss that yummy spaghetti sauce, don’t worry I have good news for you. Buy some fire-roasted bell peppers, or make them if you have the time, put them in the blender and viola spaghetti sauce. Just add spices and garlic and you don’t noticeContinue reading “Don’t Touch My Tomatoes”
