Going beyond "just pics"

I'm on a mission to move beyond just pictures and traditional media, so continuing to build my photoshop skills and excited to see others have an interest in commissioning my work.

Inspired by Visionaries and Voices and Neil Dignan, so took a shot at a zentangle while sick with a cold.


Yesterday, my daughter's hip hop team accepted their bid to the Hip Hop World Dance competition in Disney World, so I made this to commemorate it.

Hip Hop Photomanipulation

More experimentation turned into some pretty decent photo-manipulations.  

This one was a mixture of text, two layers of one black, one white mask using splatter brush.  Lowest layer was on a liquified layer where I stretched out the photo.  Finished it off with a zoom blur effect.

This one was a mix of angle and radial gradients, star brushes and a randomly masked set of radial lines created with the line tool and rotated.

Cheer and Dance - Lotsa photos

So i spent the last 2 days taking over 650 pictures at my daughters cheer and dance competition.  I had the privilege of an all access pass giving me the ability to get closer to the action and during warm-ups.  Below are 3 collages providing a sampling of the pics.
