I enjoy manipulating digital images almost as much as taking the photos in the first place. For one thing, even some of my photo mistakes still can provide raw material for a sound piece of digital art.
Lately I’ve become somewhat obsessed with reaching what I consider the perfect balance between photo and painting. Which is it? If the viewer asks that question, then the perfect balance has been reached. However, I also enjoy pushing the photo past the point where it looks, um, photographic.
Lately I’ve been cobbling together a series of filters and editing tricks that I think allows me to turn some photos into something resembling impressionist painting.
I’ve inserted a couple of them here; soon I’ll gather up more and put them into a gallery.
Update: Now I have, right here.
