I am loving the digital illustrations of Denis Gonchar. His illustrations make great use of colors, lines, shapes and textures. Even though the pieces may have a similar feel, they were all created using different methods. You can feel a sense of exploration and experimentation with his works.
This shot of the sunrise has a wonderful mix of pink and blue.
Steve Bell has a knack for capturing sunrises at the beach. Each of these photos does a wonderful job capturing the incredible light and color of the sunrise. If you enjoy these photos, you can buy prints of his work at RedBubble.
This photo captures some sharp reds and orange along the horizon and some more subtle shades as you get further away.
This photo has very vibrant red, orange, and yellow, contrasted by the silhouettes in the foreground.
First came Charles Guo, then came Timothy Lee and now I bring you Marc Philbert. They are all apart of the growing trend of light art projections in fashion photography. A trend that accentuates both the curves of the human body and different art pieces. Here's to hoping the trend continues.
Austrian skydiver Felix Baumgartner, with the help of Red Bull Stratos, will soon try and break the world record for highest sky dive. He will attempt a 23 mile free fall from a pressurized capsule while wearing only a spacuit. In doing so, he will become the first person to break the sound barrier in free fall and will risk having the water in his body vaporize! No one knows what will happen, but people are sure to find out.
"Abelardo Morell’s camera obscura technique has taken him from photographing his own living room to interiors across the globe. “One of the satisfactions I get from making this imagery comes from my seeing the weird and yet natural marriage of the inside and outside”, he says. In setting up a room to make this kind of photograph he covers all windows with plastic in order to achieve total darkness. Then he cuts one small hole in the materials that he uses to cover the windows. An inverted image of the view outside then floods onto the walls in the room. He focuses the large-format camera on the incoming image on the wall and exposes the film.
Morell recently designed a light proof tent that, via periscope type optics, makes it possible to project a view of the nearby landscape onto whatever ground is under the tent. Inside this darkened space he uses a view camera to record the effect. He says, “I think it is a rather wonderful sandwich of two outdoor realities coming together. This Tent-Camera now liberates me to use camera obscura techniques in a world of new places. I now have a portable room, so to speak.”"
I especially like the ones where the image is projected onto textured surfaces. They just give the images a unique and interesting look.
