April 8th, 2016 – Avian Friday: Painted Predator
This weeks post again has something a little different from the usual bird photograph. Those of you who are regular viewers know that I’ve tried to expand my photography to include a more artistic techniques. Recently as well as painting, I’m experimenting with mono printing using a gelatin plate instead of a printing press. I scanned a couple of images of the prints and layered with different blending modes in an iPad program to use as a background for the image of a Northern Harrier. There are ton of options to be explored with this technique and I’ve also got some ideas for incorporating woodwork.
