+Walmart is wanting to become the shopping choice of criminals with their new policy of approving purchases under $50.00 on debit cards without the use of pin numbers. So if you are a criminal and steal debit cards, head to +Walmart !
Here's a good example of why photographers should think about carrying liability insurance: Art + Auction magazine is being sued for $300,000 by art collector Corice Amran after its photographers acci...
The UN doesn't give a shit about whats going on in Gaza. About 2 million people are being held captive in the worlds biggest open air prison and they have no place to go. The average age of people living in Gaza is 17. So that means about a quarter of a million people are under the age of 10. While Hamas are launching rockets into Israel , the majority of them are being shot down by a sophisticated missile dome shield, funded by the United States. Israel in return, launch drone strikes and mortar fire into heavily populated areas. The blood of innocent Women & Children is flowing though the narrow streets of Gaza. This is nothing more than Murder! #FreePalestine
I created this matte painting with 100% photographic elements using a Canon DSLR and Photoshop
When I started to learn how to do fantasy matte paintings I needed something to test my skills on. I was heavily inspired by the movie "Pearl Harbor" for the concept and used it to develop my technical skills. The elements in this image include die-cast model airplanes and Royal Australian Navy ships photographed in Sydney.
This is a quick overview: I first sketched the scene that I wanted to create on paper. From this sketch I created concept art to help me with the element selection. Then I started to look around for the elements to use in the matte painting. Whenever I found something I felt was a potential fit I would photograph it or search for a photo in my (constantly expanding) photography library. Sometimes it would take weeks before I managed to collect all the required elements. Once I had all the elements together it could take another 160+ hours to put it all together. I used Photoshop and also have a Wacom Cintiq which makes the concept art much easier. (Yes I know I could create some elements in software like Maya, Cinema4D, DAZ etc but I wanted to make sure it is all photographic content)
Although online tools are still a ways away from competing with a behemoth like Photoshop, PicMonkey is a dead simple online photo editor that can handle many kinds of complex edits in just a few clic...
Just like the projects. Rooms are run down. Kids running up and down the hall screaming at 1am while their momma sits on the steps drinking a 40. Place is just dirty, with trash and cigarette butts everywhere. Save money and sleep in your car in the near by rest area and get a better nights sleep!
