Digitally Doctored/Manipulated Images

--------

{Photography.21.1}: E Lakin {elakin} Sat, 02 Aug 2003 01:01:05 CDT (23 lines)

hi all.  i thought i'd start a topic for posting shots that have
been manipulated/doctored digitally.

i'm not talking about utilitarian cropping or tweaking, but some of
the more radical stuff that photo manipulation programs offer.
ideally, i'd like to see photos that are easily identifiable
as 'treated.'  let's see those weird etched/blacklight/psychedelic
experiments that you've been messing around with as you explore all
the various filters in your photo programs.

although, some people are very good at this sort of
trickery....perhaps those of you who have 'cheated' in various ways
will share with us your technique.

i'm interested in seeing what others have done to make the best of
an otherwise flawed or simply unexciting shot.

please, when posting images in this topic, try to give as much
explanation about how you've manipulated the photo as possible.  try
to include the program name and what effects you utilized if you can
remember!

i'll post a couple of mine to get the ball rolling....

ok, here's one...

this is a shot of a guy carrying a dead pig. i used photoshop, and i think i used some filter called 'tv' or 'movie' or something to get the heavy grain. then i cranked the contrast way up and colorized the meat porter red.

here's another;

for this picture, i had to crop like crazy to focus in on the guy. i was originally much farther away. but when i got close in on the guy, i lost the street marker, which was much higher on the wall.

so, i cheated. i cut it out, resized it a bit, and pasted it back onto the wall much lower and closer to the corner. i think i did this one with a program called ifranview, which is a very good program and is freeware.

it's an obvious cheat if you look closely, but i'm happy with it.

Eddie, that is what my husband S2 does, except he is combines his
computer drawing with digital photographs he has taken.

He does something called picture of the day or POD where he sends out
an image via email (resized dramatically to be easy to download ).
Some Utneites are already on his list but he would be willing to add
others...Anyone interested should email him: stu@downeast.net

Gale: Have you told him about this new forum? Any chance he would be interested in participating here, at all?


Here is a manipulation, of sorts. Nothing done to the actual picture, except to crop it. The real manipulation, obviously, is reversing a copy and putting them together.

I love looking at others' interpretations of their photos.
Ocassionally I play with doing this kind of thing, but in a much more
conservative way. I tend to become overwhelmed with all the the
choices!

Kai, have you seen John Paul Caponigro's Photoshop book? He does a
lot of effective mirror image reversals, and talks about why he makes
some of the choices he does. I love some of his montages.

Gale, bring S2 on over here!

oooo, that's nice! Would you (and others who are posting images)
please say a little about what you did to the image? That background
is especially yummy.

I use paint shop pro. I colorized it then use an effect that they have called hot wax - give it sort of a batik effect.

Here is the original that I worked with.

Neat.

I like the way that came out after the changes.

Very nice! I like the flying pigeons in the original and what you
did with them.

Diane is that a heron in the background??

What should s2 do to get a few pix on here... need he join? or can he
do it through me? Thanks for the encouragement!!

He doesn't have to register. But it would be good if he did!

{Photography.21.20}: Diane Hamilton {dianeh} Sat, 02 Aug 2003 21:36:50 CDT (1 line)

Gale - it's a plastic heron.

I love that one, Diane. And Eddie, that pig picture is nicely done.

I can't remember if I posted this one or not. It's a beetle that I photographed on my limestone front step, essentially in the dark, under my porch light, with the incandescent camera setting that gives a strong orange tone to the pictures.

The bug really has all those colours, but I wasn't happy with how well it showed up, so I ran it through a set of filters called DreamySuite, which adds various mixtures of echoes, ghosts, other stuff, makes it look like you dreamed it.
