Here is a digital painting that I just finished. These works are more sketches than final pieces in the themselves so I could work out composition and colours etc. An interesting exercise in that, I know the way I personally make a living is through digital manipulation of photographic elements to create a final image for advertising. I never really gave any thought to using this practice for my painting until I was reading an article in the latest Plein Air Magazine about Chad W Greene who uses both digital and traditional materials to create works of art. So I thought, why the hell not? I could at least use it for a study. Here are a couple of digital paintings that I am going to paint in oils most likely starting today.
As these lenses are sitting blindly in their boxes still – bought them only this morning – there are no sample images as of yet. Looking forward to playing with these and seeing what I can come up with.
I have a Lumix G5 as my, run around, backpack, and play camera, and wanted something to get back into the “play” of photography without having to turn to the computer (as much).
The first is a Rising Pinhole lens. A wonderful little piece of manufacturing with a laser machined anodised aluminium plate. I believe it’s f .22. $69.00
The second is from SLR Magic out of the UK and sports a 26mm f1.4 and weighs a mere 96g. $125.00
