Neodigital Art | Defining Art

A CART

I used this picture last week and it was suggested that a colour version might look better. I did a lot of editing on this, cropping it and changing it to a watercolour image. I also edited out the cars in the background again.

Neodigital Art | Artistic editing

narrowboat

I can’t remember when I took this photo. I think it was the summer of 2011. I do remember having to take it through chain-link fencing. I have edited it again using PhotoScape using a watercolour option. It looks quite artistic now. (more…)

THE SANNA -ART

I think this photograph is quite artistic, it was a good shot and then I edited it to try to get something artistic. This is the original picture:

ORIGINAL

I took this photograph last Autumn and as you can see the sun was bright and reflected well off the Autumn colours. The picture looks dull though and so I can improve it a lot with editing. I used Windows Live Photo Gallery, it’s easy to use.

SANDWELL VALLEY EDIT

As I write this I can see blue skies and sunshine. It wasn’t like that when we went out to take photographs on Sunday, it was dull and cloudy. It looks nice today, but the wind is a cold Arctic wind. I might still try to take a few photographs later. This picture is after I did the edit, take a look at the before picture, very dull.

Psychology | Personal Branding

Woden Road South in Summer

Company branding

I’ve looked at company branding a little recently and if a company isn’t doing so well they often re-brand their products and the company. Nike make sports shoes and trainers and they re-designed their shoes and changed the way the company did business. They had a bad reputation for the way they treated their workforce and so changed that and tried to produce their products in a more sustainable and environmentally way. Everything they do is part of the brand; part of their public persona; part of their image.  Can we apply branding to ourselves to improve business success? To help us get a job? To help us get higher pay? (more…)


Psychology | Perceptions

OCTOBER 056

Looking at this photograph you might think I live in the  English countryside rather than a metropolitan area. I am projecting a perception, we do this all the time with words, pictures and appearance. I was helping business students yesterday and later I thought the important words they need to learn are perceptions and perceive. In business it is important to understand how people perceive things and that we all perceive things a little differently from one another. (more…)

Church

This photograph didn’t quite work. The trees don’t look right! I have got most of the church on a panoramic photograph though. I did it by taking video footage and panning across the church and then I use Microsoft ICE to stitch all the frames together into a panoramic photograph! It’s not bad though, I’ll try to get the steeple on next time! (more…)

motorway 005

I like the colours in this first photograph because they are muted Autumn colours. The light didn’t seem too good and my friend stayed in the car, he didn’t expect there to be good shots though! There are reds, browns and yellows in this photograph and even the black and white horse adds to the picture. (more…)

Photo edit

I’ve started this week with a screen shot to show the photo edit in Windows Live photo gallery. You can see all the tools you have for editing. I’ve cropped my photo for widescreen, increased the contrast, gave it more ‘highlights’ and increased the colour temperature adding warmth. I took this photo on Saturday with a wide aperture after the rain. (more…)


Neodigital Art | Update 24

Wide aperture

Berries

I’m getting technical this week because I switched my camera to A for aperture this week to take this shot. The depth of field was very short (the berries were close) and so I got the berries in focus and as a bonus I also got a spider’s web! (more…)

Picnic place

2011 09 08_0002

This isn’t  a great photo but it was intended as a picnic area and so looked interesting. Some idiot had lit a portable barbecue on top of the table provided and burnt it! There wasn’t that much of interest there. (more…)

pylons in black and white

Black and White

It poured with rain on Friday and when it stopped we took a few photographs, this one shows the effect of bad light and a suitable subject. This was a demolition site and the water adds to the effect. I also did a sepia version of this photograph, but the black and white seemed to work better. As usual, I used Windows Live photo gallery for the editing. (more…)

VIDEO 1 028

Manor House

My first picture today is the Manor House at West Bromwich. The light wasn’t very good, but I used a lot of Sunday’s pictures and the video clips to make the video I used in yesterdays blog. I was disappointed with the video, it displays full screen and it loses resolution; it’s better displayed smaller. I did embed it and the preview was good but then WordPress changed it to a link.

Word recall…

sketcher - MILL 143

I have started today’s blog with a picture of the entrance to a church yard; for no particular reason, except it looks nice. It is a another attempt at Neodigital Art and I have a few blogs on that subject, complete with pictures. Neodigital Art is actually getting more popular and the originals to some pictures are in fact priceless. The original file size of this one is only 1.52 Mb; but they can be twice as large. You need a high resolution picture to make large copies and up to 10,000 copies can be made in a limited edition of a work of art and so the original file can be expensive. (more…)


Neodigital Art | Update Five

This was taken at Aberdaron in Wales.

I’ve started today’s blog with a photograph taken by Simon James at Lake Vyrnwy, Monmouthshire,Wales.  I’ve been there and I don’t remember that little castle. It looks cool though; I’ll have one of those built in my garden when I win the lottery.

I edited that picture; I cropped it to clearly show the castle and tried to bring out the texture of the stonework. (more…)

Neodigital Art - A simple bridge can make an interesting picture

My first picture today was taken locally. You don’t normally have to travel far unless you live in the middle of a desert. This was just a bridge over a railway and I added some contrast and cropped the original picture. I think the blue railing make the picture look more interesting. (more…)
