My digital art falls into two categories – photo composites and abstracts. The composite images are born in my imagination and are brought to life by combining multiple photographs using imaging software – usually Photoshop. Most often I start with a photograph of a basic scene – a farm, buildings, sky, etc. Next the individual components are placed and resized as needed. Throughout the process careful attention is paid to perspective, proportion, light, shadows, and color matching. All the component images are taken by me. The following links demponstrate how two of these images were created.
A recent interest has involved using Photoshop to dramatically alter an image. You will find these explorations in the Abstract gallery. Many of these bear little to no resemblance to the original photo.
