Painting Gift Bags for Owsley Benefit

A sampling of some of the gift bags I painted yesterday with friend Marcia Meyers.  Photographed with my mobile phone so pictures are not that sharp.  Marcia is coordinating a big bag painting project for the Owsley Stanley Foundation benefit this coming November 7th at the Great American Music Hall in SF.  More info here:  http://www.owsleystanleyfoundation.org/

Playing Around with Textures

Twins Cole and Wilson Taylor, shot with my Canon Powershot G14 in Seattle, in July of this year, below. The end result, above, was modified using various photo texture layers in both Photoshop CS5 and alien skin exposure 7 software.  An enjoyable way to spend hours I was supposed to be spending doing something else!

Addicted to Panoramic Photos

My backyard, with a sculpture of E.A. Autrey's head, which is in the perfect spot to watch the full moon eclipse this coming Sunday night.  First test use of my new Acratech nodal rail.  So much fun!

The Five Autrey Daughters in Santa Barbara - Best in Blue or Yellow?

Cleaning Up Old 1974 scanned B&W 4x5 Negatives shot by E.A. Autrey in the park across from our house on Merida drive.  These oversized negatives are pretty degraded so there wasn't much that could be done with them.
Top photo adjustments:  Photoshop CS5 levels, Alien Skin AGRA APX 25 and Copper Blue Finish filters with some masking.  After and before adjustments.
Bottom photo:  Photoshop CS5 levels, Alien Skin B&W split toning and FSA Red Bleach with some masking

Looking at Pictures of Snow on a Hot Night

It's so hot, I find looking at snow has a cooling effect.  Here's a scan of an old slide from a photo taken on a trip to Yosemite in 1978.  I doubt there is that much snow there anymore.

Fort Point Roadrunner

Playing around with a photo taken during my recent Aperture Academy workshop at Fort Point in Marin County, adding one of my fabric roadrunner birds and a Samsung Instagram shadow photo.
