    fell off face of earth temporarily. back on April24

    Okay, first of all... I AM SO STOKED THAT THIS IS HERE!!!
    I'm gonna post some of my work for now, but I also will be posting tutorials on how I did some of this stuff too.. but for now, briefly, I combine and layer the main photo plus photos of textures that I've taken plus digital painting, tweaking color, saturation, curves, levels, contrast, etc..
    First up, my grandma's freaky dolls (well, I kinda made them freakiER):

    Next, my kitty, Sadie:

    ...and the following are a few shots from Austin:

    and one of the Watts Atelier crew in Austin (they tell me that dumpster was pretty rancid, but it made for a nice shot):

    Okay, that's it for now.. I will be posting here more, and I intend to post tutorials on the digital stuff, if anyone's interested.. and I'd love feedback.

    These are some great photos! Some of those Austin shots are amazing! Were they shot digitally or with a regular camera? I will be waiting for tutorials on those first few (doll face) photos.

    Great work, let's see more!!

    Seriously! When Vanessa showed me her portfolio I was shocked! I really had no idea.
    Awesome stuff. Wait till she explains how she did all of the texture and manip work.

    thanks all! ..for visiting, posting, commenting... It's so cool to see all of your work too. Awesome stuff.. and all the websites rock too.. I could get very carried away and get lost just checkin out all the kick ass art that everyone does here - blows me away.. anyway, I hope more people will come to see the photography thread! We gotta get the word out.

    I also will be posting a tutorial in a couple minutes.. of the clown pic.. in a different thread - tutorials.. I'll try to keep them broken down like that so it's easier to explain with the visuals.. go check it out when you get a chance and let me know if it's not too vague, or doesn't make sense, or whatever..

    Hey Vanessa could you do me a favor and post a full rez pic of the one of us in the alley? (you could just email it to me if you want, or if you have the time, no hurry) That shot is freakin awesome, and would make a rad desktop background. Dude, too bad you aren't in it. You didn't get to experience the stinkiness. It was invigorating.

    I love all your Austin shots, expecially Fran's hamburgers. It looks like such a cold day...if only it really was. And post those a little higer rez too. They're great small like that as a collage, but i'd love to see bigger versions of them.

    go shoot some more, show everyone our beautiful city!

    Gawd I hate dolls like that... *twitchspasm* Even without all the creepyness you added. NEways, the cathedral shots you took are really interesting. Was that an existing installation, or was that your handiwork, too? Loved the shot of the crew.

    Love the third one with all of the pupits. The more I look at all of the shots of 'em, the more I see them as people lined up, or in a crowd. Very eerie and effective use of black and white photography.

    Wow, I dunno if I'd be takin pictures of those lil guys or backing away, slowly. XD LOL
