Macro Photography and 22 Colorful Example Macro photography is close-up photography. The classical definition is that the image projected on the “film plane” is close to the same size as the subject. Lenses designed for macro are usually at their sharpest at macro focus distances and are not quite as sharp at other focus distances. Monster mayhem: Pacific Rim It’s not hard to see why the prospect of ILM creating giant monsters versus giant robots for Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim was something many filmgoers were hungry to see. Perhaps aware of that anticipation, and knowing the challenges that lay ahead in realizing the enormous ‘Kaiju’ versus ‘Jaegers’ fights on screen, the studio retooled many elements of its effects pipeline for the show, including simulation, lighting and rendering.

The Art & Artistry of Richard Amsel (1947-1985): Album Covers The Divine Miss M (2) 1972 Acrylic and colored pencils on board 15 x 14 1/2 in. One of Amsel's most famous and popular pieces. One of the challenges I've had with this site is trying to find sharp, high quality images that best represent Amsel's work. Many of the images here were either scans I made myself, or culled from images online...but when I don't have the original art available for comparison, there's a wide margin of error in how the colors are represented. Take, for example, these two images of THE DIVINE MISS M album cover illustration. At top is a high rez pic I scanned from a catalog; beneath a smaller pic of the album itself found online.

About « bill sharp – paintings When I started this blog I thought I was going to use it as a way of motivating myself to sketch but I’ve found myself drawn back to oil painting. I studied painting and printmaking in college and spent several years working as a studio artist doing expressionist style mixed media and, later, oils and watercolors.

A recent e-mail from Orbitz promised cheap airfare to Las Vegas. The wheels in my head began to turn, and soon a plan was formulated to take a trip to the Mojave Desert with good friend Mel Patrick. This post will give a brief glimpse into our week-long trip through California. Uncle Mel surveying the landscape as the sun drops lower to the horizon. Making Sense of the Warp Tool – It’s All About the Lines Every now and then a project comes along that challenges me to use one of Photoshop's tools more than ever. This particular image was part of a series of ads I was working on with photographer Richard Radstone for a clothing line based in Colombia, South America. Each of the ads featured a surreal representation of a different region of Colombia and was created by compositing various stock images and photos Richard shot for the job. The challenge with this one was to wrap an accordion around the palm tree like a giant snake.
