Gentle Giant

Bannack Fine Art

I took this photo of Gerald at Bannack Ghost town in Montana. I love this photo because his eyes are so telling, he is such a big tough guy, but his eyes look so gentle (hence, gentle giant). For the edits I took a white brush and highlighted his eyes then blurred it. Then I took made a sharp mask and sharpened the parts tat needed it. I used the patch tool to take out some things in the background. Last i used color balance and made it less yellow. gerald-new

I like these because they are all so different and i feel best represent my style. I also took into consideration on how well they would print.

Bannack Creative

While in Bannack I had to get pretty creative.

To match the theme and make it a little more real, I did a levitation and ghost photos. Then I also got abstract and commercial photos to do somthing different. On top of all that, I did a conceptual photo to tell a story.

This is my conceptual photo.The concept is that the cowboy is at a bar really contemplating something. But you cant tell what his emotion is.

 

 

Fine Art in Bannack

Bannack Ghost Town, Fine Art

While I was in Bannack Ghost town in Montana, there were so many cool and unique things to shoot! Because it is old and run down, it gave  a whole new world of opportunities to shoot things we dont see anymore. I hopeyou enjoy my old ghost town, fine art images!

Details in life

Macro all up in your face.

For this assignment we had to find all the details in around us. Which is basically what macro is. I really love the water droplets on flowers, I feel like it gives a cool perspective that isn’t super abstract and makes sense. I also really like Macro because it gives the feel of appreciating the details that we normally look past. While taking Macro shots you want to remember to have a higher aperture because the depth of field is already going to be so shallow with your lens.
