Digital Art Guild - The Page Turning FlipBook by Dorothy Simpson Kraus (...) I am a painter by training and collage-maker by nature who began my experimental printmaking with reprographic machines. Since being introduced to computers in the late 1960’s when working on my doctorate at Penn State, I have combined traditional and digital media. My work includes large-scale mixed media pieces, artist books and book-like objects that bridge between these two forms. It embeds archetypal symbols and fragments of image and text in multiple layers of texture and meaning. It combines the humblest of materials, plaster, tar, wax and pigment, with the latest in technology to evoke the past and herald the future. In the past ten years books have become increasingly important to me. However a couple of years ago, I discovered the online gallery of the British Library, “Turning the Pages ." They have digitized the pages from 15 books, ranging from a sketchbook of Leonardo to Lewis Carroll’s original Alice.

Adobe Creative Suite 4 Sean Duggan Photographics Technique Creating good photographs, as any seasoned photographer will tell you, is about much more than pure "nuts and bolts" technical matters. Certainly a command of the technical details is very important, and for some types of images, essential. The digital cameras and sophisticated digital darkroom software we use today are very technical, but knowing what button to push, what adjustment to make or which exposure method to use is not everything. Reflections on the nature of photography itself, on why you make the images you do, what they mean, how you see the world, and understanding the arc of your own creativity are also important elements that go into making good photographs. And so in this section, I will be offering not only articles and tutorials that cover technical "technique", both in terms of the camera and the digital darkroom, but also essays and musings that take a look at the reflective and meditative "technique" that is a vital part of the creative life of any artist. - The art of 3D artist Andre Kutscherauer
