January 28th, A Work in Progress… (Funko Fantasy)

“When you look in the mirror, what do you see? Do you see the real you, or what you have been conditioned to believe is you? The two are so, so different. One is an infinite consciousness capable of being and creating whatever it chooses, the other is an illusion imprisoned by its own perceived and programmed limitations.” ~ David Icke01_28_16_01

I wanted to show how the compositing process can go for the final photograph on Sunday. As you can see I’ve taken the photograph on the left and the right and combined them into the photograph in the center.  Next on the list will be touching up the figure, doing some detail work, then its off to be added to its new background.

January 28th, A poem by Arthur William Edgar O’Shaughnessy…

“We are the music-makers,
And we are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
And sitting by desolate streams.
World-losers and world-forsakers,
Upon whom the pale moon gleams;
Yet we are the movers and shakers,
Of the world forever, it seems.

With wonderful deathless ditties
We build up the world’s great cities,
And out of a fabulous story
We fashion an empire’s glory:
One man with a dream, at pleasure,
Shall go forth and conquer a crown;
And three with a new song’s measure
Can trample an empire down.

We, in the ages lying
In the buried past of the earth,
Built Nineveh with our sighing,
And Babel itself with our mirth;
And o’erthrew them with prophesying
To the old of the new world’s worth;
For each age is a dream that is dying,
Or one that is coming to birth.”

Arthur William Edgar O’Shaughnessy

2016 Photography Project Theme.

For 2016 lets have fun with the new theme Funko Fantasy!

You know Funko makers of the cute little buggers the Funko Pop, well you will be getting a year full of them 52 to be precise. Unfortunately I do not have 365 Funko toys so one a week is how we are going to go.

This year will be a bit of a change, on Mondays I will let you know which Funko is getting the week, around the middle of the week I will post a photograph of the toy in the real world, and finally the main photograph will be released on Sunday.  I’ve chosen to take my time on the main photograph instead of trying to fit all the Photoshop work into one afternoon, this should be far better for my stress level, not to mention my back and butt!

Stay tuned kiddies lets get this party started!
