Example text

Anne was photographed by window light in the studio with the pose just as it is seen in the final image. The horse, Safeen, was a beautiful Arabian owned by a photographer friend. Safeen was photographed with his owner, Kerri, at a nearby stable. The late Safeen was a beautiful horse who loved to perform for the camera. Kerri simply released Safeen into the corral, and he began showing off and performing, always keeping an eye on us to make sure we were watching. Like many of my images, Wild Ride was conceived of while touring the contents of my hard drives and letting the concepts from various images bump into each other and commingle in my imagination.

Kristi was photographed in a friend舗s studio with traditional techniques and lighting. The only digital manipulation was to use the Liquify filter to pull the black fabric across the bottom of the frame as a leading line. The jet fish were assembled from my often used ornamental wooden fish, some goose wings, and elements from a jet aircraft I舗d captured specifically for this previsualized concept. On a large scale print, the viewer is able to see head-and-shoulders views of fish in each of the jet fish舗s passenger windows.

The technique works with all but the Warp tool and creates a large number of layers very quickly. The layers can be organized into groups using Command G and flattened using Command E to put them on a single layer. The step and repeat technique was used throughout the I Dream of Fish image to create multiple groups of fish transformations. Some were flattened for the background, and others were flattened and used as textures over the subject and masked back over the eyes and lips. In some cases, groups of transformed fish were flattened and transformed with the Liquify filter to shape texture layers to conform to the figure layer.
