Weekly Photo Challenge – Opposites

This weeks photo challenge is called Opposites and asks us to make two opposing elements come together in one photograph.

I do like to cheat a little on these challenges so thought I would show a photo composite I created this week.


Transformational Digital Art

I love taking photographs.  I spend so much time taking photographs that it is easy just to hit the delete button when you take something that just didn’t emerge from the camera as I envisaged it.

About a year ago I got interested in transforming my photos into pieces of art.  I am not trying to fool the viewer into believing I have created the perfect photograph.  Far from it, I want to make pieces that I would be happy to hang on my wall.  I haven’t had much time for creating in recent weeks so with a little time on my hands I spent a few hours turning the terribly dull photograph below into something a little more dramatic.  I hope you like it.


Weekly Photo Challenge – harmony

This weeks photo challenge is titled “Harmony” and as is often the case I take a slightly obscure approach.  These pieces are all created from my own photographs as I search to bring work together in harmonious way.

I hope you like them.


Weekly Photo Challenge – Symbol

hey folks,

In a break from what I have been doing recently I thought I would share a single shot with you today. This photo is a composite of a couple of my photo’s.  I shot Mary J Blige on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury Festival last month and I kind of like the shot.  The problem is the background was very dull indeed.

Above the stage is a clock, its arms laid out to make the CND symbol and with the words “Peace Time” engraved around the edge.  I blended the two photographs together in Photoshop and added some vector art and a texture to make the background a little more interesting.

This is the result.  I don’t really see this as a finished piece, more an experiment and working piece.  I hope you like it.
