Wet webs and digital magic… part 5…

a 1

To be honest, some of these are not digitally enhanced so much as just cropped to a small portion of the photo.

a 2

But I found a new web that was in direct sunlight.

a 3

So I misted that sucker with my patented ‘fake dew’.

a 4

I am still trying to get a photo of the water gleaming like diamonds.

a 5

But when I zoom in, they are still a little blurry. I am talking about really small droplets here.

a 6

See, that is nice, but I want the whole rainbow, not just the sparkle.

a 7

But it will happen sooner or later, just like my perfect picture of a dog shaking off water will happen.

a 8

I will keep trying, and until then…

a 9

I will probably continue to do stuff to the pictures to make them more interesting.

a 10

Because you know I hate to waste a fairly good photo.

a 12

When I can share them with you.

Wet webs and digital magic… part 4…

b 1

So, you know what is going on here, right?

b 2

Reading enough of the words so that you don’t need to have it explained over and over…

b 3

Following along just enough so that you don’t feel lost…

b 4

At least enough so that you aren’t asking yourself what is happening here…

b 5

Because you know the last thing I want to be responsible for…

b 6

Is any sort of confusion.

a 3

There is the original photo I took, and let’s face it, it is weird enough that I go around annoying spiders by using a mister bottle to spray their webs just to make fake dew for a photo op. Let’s not compound the issue by making it weird.

Wet webs and digital magic… part 3… (or): See, I told you we were done with the stupid cat pictures, so back to the usual unusualness!!!

b 1

Yes, we are back to taking those photos I took of spider webs after I misted them with fake dew, and doing some digital magic on them, just to see what we can come up with. Ironically, that filter in Photoshop is called ‘liquefy’, which is funny to use on a web that I pre-liquefied.

b 2

Okay, so I was going to do one of my mirror image things, but I forgot to copy the selected rectangle before I flipped it. I liked the way it looked, so I did that a few more times.

b 3


b 4

That is sort of cool.

a 2 copy

And that is what happens when you do some mirror imaging and some playing with the color.

a 2

And there we have the original image.

Where dat cat at now?… part 18…

b 4

I guess it shouldn’t surprise me that my cat is interested in sports. We all remember the embarrassing moment at the Olympics when she couldn’t contain herself, and had to interrupt a routine with what, I think we can all agree, was an even more impressive one.
