Midnight Monkey Business

So late in the evening last night I was reviewing several photographic websites and forums just out of basic curiosity. As an Abstract Painter an open mind is essential to stay creative and evolve. My own skills as an amateur part-time photographer are limited (and that’s being generous) so there’s no shortage of things to learn along the way.

Part of my interest lays in the area of creatively altering images to produce an artistic outcome. With varying success I’d like to think the effort is moving along well. Perhaps the following images will illustrate my earliest efforts…

Here we have the original photo with only the slightest adjustment to colour and contrast.
Here we have the same image converted to greyscale with further adjustments to contrast.
Shown here is my attempt to make the same photo appear as though it were taken with night vision equipment.

Perhaps these photos provided display that gradually I’m picking up a trick or two over time. Perhaps they convey how well I copy the steps on a website opened off to the side. All I can claim is that there’s always a curiosity to explore and learn as part of my ever expanding horizon.

Monochrome Monday

To cleanse the pallet from all the weekend excitement here’s something slightly more subdued. Still quite artistic but more down to earth.

Friday Flowers

So much can be accomplished simply by owning a cellphone camera and having way too much time on your hands.

Have A Great Friday!

Irises

Trying to keep this post lighter and slightly whimsical so what could be more suitable than a look back on the summer. Here we take a trip to the Royal Botanical Gardens in Glasgow, Scotland.

It was a remarkable opportunity to take photos of so many wonderful species in a variety of colours.
