1610 - Keep Rolling

Ted uses Alien Skin Snap Art all the time, well, he is a real master in it and he’s even featured on Alien Skin’s site.

For me it is one of the tools that I use rarely, but sometimes it is a nice way to express my joy of light. Today we had a warm spring day and the light in the morning was blindingly bright. These are the occasions when I grab for Snap Art.

Interesting. I can’t really pin down why I connect this kind of processing with joy, but fact is I do. It must be something about childhood. It looks like an illustration, but then it does not. In a way these images look timeless, don’t they? Timeless like a childhood long gone and ever present.

The Song of the Day is “Keep Rolling” from Paolo Nutini’s 2009 album “Sunny Side Up”. Hear it on YouTube.

Filters are the photographic artist's brushes. They surmount problems, extend feelings, and snigger ideas into the balance of an image. A reason I resist the Lens Baby is that it leaves so little ability to nuance an idea... it leaves its user stuck with a massive intrusion onto a frame. Filters reverse that - letting the artist select rather than cope. All of which you've done here by not permitting the SnapArt intrusion to overcome your intent. Of course I totally like what you've done and appreciate the lesson it imparts. Totally evocative....
