    Default Assignment #23: Digital Art

    [O]ne can proudly say that these photographers have broken the tradition of the artificial reproduction of nature. They have freed themselves from photography.
    - Karl Voll, 1867 1917

    Digital photography has had a tough childhood. As with the origin of photography over a hundred years ago, it's had to be accepted by those who have set the terms of what "art" is. The Pictorialists used their cameras to emulate paintings, and digital photographers can be equally concerned with staying true to their technological predecessors.

    But the start of a new technology never knows where it will end up. For this assignment, let's look at what's possible when we stop trying to create a literal view of the world. Be creative, experiment, and show us your favourites here.

    Here's one I've been playing with recently. I posted this photo a while back but wanted to make it look kinda like an "old time" press print of some sort.

    That's very neat. I don't recall the name, but there was/is an old printing style that looked just like that. Very neat effect.

    Yeah, I couldn't think of of either.

    I wanted to say lithograph, but I don't think thats it, & I didn't want to look any dumber than I already do

    I believe in art class we called it pen and ink, where your image came to be from a series of dots and/or line strokes. For me, the lines were far more interesting because it took more time, effort and thought in creating one.

    Here's my digital art. You might never know that it was originally a rooster (I'll attach the original shot). I like how it has a 3D effect.

    Wink Re: Assignment #23: Digital Art

    This is a somewhat traditional art but in digital form from me. It was the very first piece of assignment I did when I started learning Photoshop about one-and-a-half year ago. My hand ached when trying to paint using the mouse and it feel rather awkward too; only to learn to appreciate that painting with a Wacom Intuos pen a few months later was a much pleasant experience.

    I'm not very good at photoshop yet, but this is my favourite picture so far.

    Is this the sort of thing that falls into this category?

    I have had some time recently and revisited some images shot in Greece last year and came up with this treatment. I found a few subjects responded really well.

    There's some very creative stuff here! I'm more of a photorealist myself, but I took an advanced Photoshop class last year from Randy Snook and tried desperately to keep up with the professional digital artists who were taking the class.

    For one of our assignments we created posters to advertise the class. I took an ordinary photo at the Nevada County campus and played with Channels:

    Some really neat work here. Creating digital art can be very addictive: sometimes I think I take a lot of shots just to have something to Photoshop.

    So here's a few of my experiments. I have them in a directory I label "abstracts" because there are critics ( )out there who think any manipulation beyond straightening a horizon and a little sharpen is blasphemy to photography.
    But seriously, thanks so much for coming up with this assignment because isn't photography about just telling stories in an artistic way?

    This is one I did a long time ago, but I was reminded of it by Jims rendition. It was done using various effects in Picasa.

    I must confess Tony.
    There's not really an effect there other than a bit of blur and a slight PP swirl. It actually IS a tunnel - the footpath under the Thames in Greenwich England. Low light, longish exposure and orangy arc lights.
    I do like the effect though.

    I probably did a dozen different things to this image but for some reason I like this one the most. It started life as a sunset picture with a great orange glow from all the particulates in the air but when I applied the zephyr affect I really like the rainbow of colors and their stark contrast to the dark saguaro cacti in the foreground.
