Sea of Red! Canyon X & Slot Canyon Ghosts & Light Beams Dancing in Antelope Canyon! Nikon D800E Dr. Elliot McGucken Fine Art Photography for Los Angeles Gallery Show!
Sea of Red! Slot Canyon Ghosts & Light Beams Dancing in Antelope Valley, Arizona! The shafts of sunlight catch the dust and bring it to life! Nikon D800E Dr. Elliot McGucken Fine Art Photography for Los Angeles Gallery Show!
Will be busy printing and framing in nice large, matted formats and frames and museum glass! Five of these photos will be printed on 40" x 60" floating wall mounted metal sheets! I think I know which--will share photos of the photos hanging on the walls!
And I am mounting some on plexiglass/acryllic--front mounting them! Some I am printing on lossy fuji-crystal archival paper too, and then front mounting 40"x60" versions to plexiglass--will send photos!
The secret to HDR photography is that you want people to say, "Woe dude--that's unreal!" And not, "Dude--that's not real!" "Unreal" is the word they use when they're trying to figure out the photo--what makes it cool--is it a photo? Is it painted? How'd it come to be--how'd you bend the light that way? "That's not real," is what they say if you have the saturation/HDR/ etc. turned up too high. :)
Some (almost) final edits for my Los Angeles Gallery Show! Printing them on metallic paper at 13" x 19" and mounting and framing them on a 4mm 18x24 white mat and 2" dark wood frame. Also printing some 40" x 70" whihc is over three feet by five feet! Wish you all could come (and hang out with the goddesses)!
Let me know your favs.!
