Tanya Rochat does another amazing composite piece. Absolutely Amazing.
 
Photo composite with rocks

Using only one photographed scene of rocks, I "cut" the finger shapes from it to look like individual forms (see the foreground especially). With a lot of cutting, pasting, and scaling in Photoshop it was possible to construct a whole new scene.
This image consists of only photographs.
I have this code of working that I have laid down for myself where I use only photos in my composites. No brushwork, no CG elements. Just pure photos that have been cut and pasted in Photoshop to which adjustments like Curves, Colour Balance, and Levels have been applied.
The biggest challenge with images like these are the finding of the various photos in my photo library to use ;)

I would like Trey’s drone, and this is what I want to do with it: I would use it to capture a first person view of the ice canyons created by the ice flows in the bay here in Alaska. In the summer, I would love to use it to capture the wild beauty of Central Alaska.

I have a huge favor to ask of ya'll..
Would you please help support my friend, Nicole Grimes. She's working on raising funds to get a Service Dog for her daughter who has Type 1 diabetes. The service dog, a Diabetic Alert Dog, would alert her daughter when her blood sugar is dangerously low or high. This has the very real potential to save her daughter's life.

They have already raised an impressive amount of $2250; however, they still have a little ways to go.  I'm hoping by sharing this with my friends that we collectively put her over the top of her $3000 goal. I think it would be really cool if we could blast past this goal not by a little amount, but by a huge amount!!

If you would like to help out with this message me directly and I’ll get you the paypal information!
Thank you for helping make this Service Dog a reality.

About 6 months ago, I was tracking down this Workshop that I had seen done. +Three Nails Photography had a workshop called the Great Gatsby. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to attend; however, the images that were made are awesome!!

I'm reposting this to my G+ account, because I don't want it to get lost. :D
THIS IS A WORKSHOP IVE BEEN WANTING TO DO FOR A LONG TIME. I KNEW THAT IT WOULD TAKE ALOT OF WORK & EFFORT BECAUSE THERE ARE SO MANY DIFFERENT ELEMENTS TO PULL THIS THEME TOGETHER. NOT ONLY DO YOU HAVE TO HAVE A TON OF MODELS TO MAKE THIS WORK, BECAUSE A HUGE PART OF THE STORY LINE IS THAT ...

+Peter Hollens and +Evynne Hollens once again bring us a medley that is great to listen to. For someone like me that hung out during High School in the Drama Department, this medley brings up memories from a long time ago. Thank you Hollens Family!

Hey guys I need some help locating a photoshoot that I saw in the last couple of months. It recreated a 1920s or 1930s speakeasy. The main image posted was a lady on a piano with a guy playing it. I remember the individual saying that they put a lot of time into putting all the paneling together for this shoot. They also created a video of the photoshoot.

Thanks for the help.

Here I am scheduling my time for two large conferences in Las Vegas, NV, ( #interop2014 and #nabshow2014 ) when it occurred to me that some of ya'll maybe going to the same conferences. Anybody interested in an unofficial Photowalk?
