Lone Mangrove Tree, Everglades

This image is from a trip to the Everglades a few years ago. On this day we took a boat out to the Mangroves, got in the water and made images for about two hours. The one thing we were told was to shuffle our feet to not step on the sting rays....apparently they are only bothered if you step right on them,.....NICE!

This was a big boy camera image processed on the iPad using Filterstorm, blender and Moku Hanga......

Red Church, Iceland

Iceland CHurch
Today's image started as a DSLR photo which was photo-synched over to my iPad2 for processing. Snapseed and Blender were used and then the image was synched back to my desktop where I added a texture and sharpening.

I like creating what I call the anti-postcard image.......The original image is below and was made through a bus window on a rainy day, hence the soft fog look....

Wind Farm

Wind Farm near Walla Walla
Passed this scene on the way to Portland, Oregon when leaving the Palouse. Image was made using the Olympus OM-D 4/3 mirror less camera my friend Dan Burkholder made me aware of. I  continue to marvel at the ease which my eye-fi card downloads my images directly to the iPad with no wires attached. Additionally the images come into the iPad at 16MP.

This image was created using snapseed, blender, FXPhotoStudio and Moka Hanga

Lone Tree, The Palouse

Lone Tree, The Palouse
The Last Pixel Show Workshop in The Palouse ended on Sunday. Met some new friends and re-visited with some old friends. There were participants from all parts of the country and everyone brought something new to the table - seems like there is always new to learn about iPhone/iPad digital art.

We made images of o0ld cars, tractors, trucks, combines, wheat, lentils, and, of course, Lone Tree's....Seems like everyone has a special Lone Tree.......

On that note I processed my own version of The Lone Tree above...Used 645Pro, Snapseed, blender and foolproof.....Foolproof is a low res app but neat look for blending back into an original..

Koi Pond, The Palouse

Koi Pond, iPhone4s
The Last Pixel Show workshop finished last night - and what a week it was - great light - great participants - and, of course lots of iPhone chatter. Thanks to everyoje who drove and flew a long way to be part of this workshop. Someone once told me ;if you want to learn something - teach it', and that is very true.
Today's image was made using a new camerta application 645 Pto (look for more info in the next few days) and processed using Blender, Filterstorm, Moka Hanga, and another new application, Foolproof.

Foolproof i a fun (low res) painting application and feels more like finger painting then brushing. Make a really good layer to use for blending and so far I am liking this one.

Look for more on both of these applications in the next few days as today is a travel day. Going through the Columbia Gorge with my friend and co-workshop organizer,m Teri Lou Dantzler.

The Palouse, Rad's Farm

Combine, Rod's Hubner's Farm
Yesterday afternoon The Last Pixel Show workshop made images aat Rod Hubner's farm, between Oakdaleand Colfax, Washington. And what an afternoon it was - everything from Matty the dog, to getting a ride in a combine that was out in the field harvesting the wheat. There were dust shots of the combines moving through the fields cutting the wheat and then coming in to dump their loads into a waiting truck.

We were there until almost sunset. At one point, off om the horizon there was a red circular light ashing down from the clouds

The Palouse - Day 1

Wheat Harvest, Palouse
Everyone  arrived tin Colfax today for our Last Pixel Show iPhone Workshop.We all met at 6PM and went out for a quick dinner before getting together in the conference room so Teri Lou and I could review a few cameras as we are going out for sunrise tomorrow. Great group, mostly from the west coast but there is one from Texas and another from Montana, 11 women and two men.

Tomorrow the call is at 530AM so cutting this note short tonight.

The farmers in this area are in the middle of harvest - therefore I am sharing an image that this New Yorker does not see everyday.....i used my Olympus OM-D and an eye-fi card. The eye-fi card facilitated the images being tirelessly transferred to my iPad for processing.

' I been in the right place
But it must have been the wrong time
I'd of said the right thing
But I must have used the wrong line

And I'm wondering what it's good for'...Dr John
