Digital Space Art: Placing Planets

In photography, you seldom have a choice where all the elements are placed in a photograph. Sure, you can move your camera for a different angle, or sometimes you can move your subject if it’s convenient. In space art, the choices are endless. In the following images, I have over a hundred layers, and thus an infinite number of choices as where to place things. Even my star fields are a number of layers. The series I’m currently working on […]

Alien Space (beyond the known universe)

Digital Space Art is always fun, but sometimes somethings turns out beyond your expectations that may incite an unexpected reaction. Sometimes things are just bizarre. Aftermath 2 is just such an image. It’s a composite with literally hundreds of layers, and probably almost impossible to replicate no matter how talented you are at Photoshop. If I started from scratch and borrowed all the same elements from my space art library, I might come close, but I’d never get exactly the […]

Arches National Park Photo Guide: Off the beaten path (part 3)

I have visited Klondike Bluffs a dozen times I’m sure, and I have hiked to its core from every direction. If you have a high clearance 4×4, you can drive directly to tower arch, but you see so much more if you hike. However you go, be assured you are in for a treat. Entering from the Salt Valley Road, a short climb from the Tower Arch Trailhead parking lot will bring you to a ridge and a view of […]

All Seasons

Create something good for all tomorrows, so life doesn’t end with unthinkable sorrows! Know that the moment is part of forever, so be true to your soul  […]

Enhance your photos with digital frames 12 easy steps

If you’re like me, my best photos are viewed on a monitor. Very few ever get printed. No doubt your computer desktop is displaying dozens of your favorite images because it’s a great way to enjoy your digital photography. Full screen viewing definitely brings you right into the picture, but it also crops the image to the aspect ratio of your monitor. Also, your folders, tool bars, icons, and other mouse-operated links can clutter your desktop, and thus your image. […]

Creating a Vision

I recently made a book trailer for my first novel, Silent Wave. I needed images representative of the storyline, which meant that most were at least partially from my imagination. When certain elements don’t exist, how do you go about creating them? In my photography I typically shoot with the idea that I will composite backgrounds, mid-grounds, and foregrounds together, so I’m used to building images in Photoshop. Some are more of a challenge than others. AMT (Advanced Metal Technologies, […]
