Daily Photo – A Snowy Walk in Patagonia
I took a long hike one morning here on the edge of Chile. It was quite a vertical ascent too, and I did it without any water, hoping I would find some freshwater lakes along the way. Luckily enough, I came across this one where I filled up my bottle with some of the freshest water I’ve ever tasted.
New Re-Mastering Video for Fine Art on Passport Sunday!
If you are a Passport Member then you get a special treat today! I am just releasing Series 2 of the fine art over at TreyRatcliff.com and decided to go re-master this one from Patagonia.
Hey here’s the video of me working on the final image. You can see how I dealt with a lot of different problems. One thing I forgot to put in the video is how I gave the mountains a little bit of vertical stretch at the end… or as I like to call it, Mountain-Viagra.
When I went back to re-edit this one, I had to fix up more than I first thought. Something happened with some of the fringing, which was very very difficult to fix. If you watch the video, you’ll see all the trouble I went through. It reminds me not to move the sliders too far in one position because it can cause tiny little niggling problems that you can’t solve later.
I have released a new video today that you just gotta see. The Exclusive rights to show it were nabbed up by Abduzeedo.com and the amazing team of Fabio, Gisele, and all the other from that Brazilian Design Powerhouse! Fabio actually came to my Google Talk on HDR Photography in Mountain View, so it was really cool to meet him in person.
We will be showing the video here on StuckInCustoms tomorrow, but you should head over to Abduzeedo in the meantime. That site is a constant source of artistic inspiration for me… I think you will dig it too.
New Shot from the Textures Tutorial
Today’s photo below was made with a few of my 150 Textures from the popular Textures Tutorial. The downloads on this thing have been crazy… There is even an illegal site out there that shows over 30,000 downloads. Pirates! Anyway, I know none of you nice people would do such a thing… so I appreciate the support you give your friendly internet artists! 🙂
William Beem recently put up a review on the aptly named WilliamBeem.com – I can tell from that photo that he is really getting the hang of it – cool!
Daily Photo – The Edge of Chile
Today’s photo comes from the from the very southern tip of the Americas. It is a bitterly cold place, even in the summer. I believe that the glaciation period is relatively recent, so the peaks are extra jagged and everything feels fresh and raw.
I can’t believe there are actually people that climb this thing! It was hard enough getting myself up high enough on a distant peak to take this shot. Then again, I’m not exactly in mountain-climbing shape. I’ve heard the old answer to the question, “Why do you climb the mountain?” The answer is always, “Because it’s there”. Funny — that is my same answer when people ask my why I don’t want to climb the mountain.
