Many, many thanks to Susan, Tim and Annabelle – I can compute again! It feels incredible to be able to use my DSLR… and Photoshop… and Illustrator… and…

Dominic Toretto: “You drive like you’ve done this before.”

Fake ambrotype typewriter bits… just for grins. Have a great weekend, everyone!

Anna No. 3 (faux wet plate collodion)

collodion_anna_no_3

Totally exaggerated freckles (although I was tempted to pull them out even further). Ditto the luminous / iridescent / ‘Underworld-ish’ eyes. Over-processing. That’s just how I roll fake-ambrotype.

Selene: “We have a serious problem.”

– Kate Beckinsale – Underworld

Patriot (from the World Bird Sanctuary) was extremely cooperative. Very kind, don’t you think? Have a great weekend, everyone!

Sweet Dee Reynolds: “Callin’ me a bird all night… makin’ fun… sayin’ names…”

Peacock Feather

No peacocks were harmed or in any way mistreated during the production of this photograph. No word as of yet regarding their opinion of extremely shallow depth of field, though.

Brendan: “Here are the peacock feathers plus some instructions from the guru… what’s in that box?”

Francis Whitman: “We bought a snake.”

Brendan: “Its got a skull and crossbones on it…”
