Ideas for art and photography

hand cart with signature

This is a photo I had printed as a Christmas gift. It was edited with PhotoScape and I used the watercolour option to bring out the pattern of the bricks. It also has a gradient border. I also superimposed the picture on a plain white image to add a 300 pixel border all around the image; that gave a second border. (more…)


Neodigital Art: dereliction

1 track

You can often create an artistic image from a photograph of dereliction. In this case an abandoned railway. I simply added some warmth to this photo, to bring out the winter colours of the leaves and the grass. (more…)


Neodigital Art: Different styles

1 sunset 2

I was very creative last week, but all I have done to this image of a sunset is make it a little darker, add contrast and crop it at the bottom. I also added the border, which I don’t usually do, but I think it works for this image. (more…)


Neodigital Christmas Creations

111 color art

My first image today took me about an hour to edit. This street photograph was taken in the early evening and it was quite dark. I’ve used the gradient border again, but made the whole picture lighter using the bloom option and the region (out of focus) option gives me a lot of tools to do something creative with.

Neodigital Art: For the people

aa  artsitic

If you’re a regular readers then you’ll know that Neodigital Art is about taking digital images and turning them into art. This image was a photograph that I took while experimenting with different camera settings. I took the photo through the window. I’ve since done some more editing to turn it into a Christmas Greetings image and changed the tint and added a message.

Neodigital Art | Before and After

A BEFORE AND AFTER

This week I’ve started with a before and after of my poppies picture. The original picture was shot in bad light on a demolition site. You can see fairly easily how I have cropped the picture. The editing is harder to explain, but I used PhotoScape and used the watercolour pencil option. It was also resized, as was the original.

Psychology | Visions of reality

If you ask 100 people what colour the grass is , they will probably all say green. There can be variations depending on what language they speak and their culture. We all live in the same world, but our view of it, our reality; can be different. Institutions affect our view of reality and shape our view of the world.

Neodigital Art | Editing Victorian buildings

White Hart 2

White Hart, Walsall

Neodigital Art is about creating art using digital cameras and scanners. I went out to take some photos of buildings on Sunday and this was one of the more interesting and historic ones. It not only led me to do some research into it’s history, but even had me researching my own family tree more.

Neodigital Art and photography

scene at Aldridge

I took this shot with my Nikon D3200. I think it might have been better with my Fujifilm S5600. I get less definition, but seem to get more colour separation. I can make this lighter so the trees aren’t so dark; but then I lose the blue sky and the sunlight reflecting off the yellow field. The edit always has to be a compromise. (more…)

A Toll End

Neodigital Art is about taking digital photos and scans and trying to create art. I don’t think this photo is very artistic, it’s nice but not exactly unique. It looks very different from the photo that I took in the same place last winter.

Neodigital Art | Stormy weather

DSC_1909

I had some nice weather in July for photography, but now it’s very changeable. I was taking photos in the storm the other day and as it passed there was a blue sky and I took this one of the church on the hill.

Neodigital Art | Victoriana

a narrow boat

Neodigital Art is about taking images and editing them to create something artistic. Today, I’m taking images that you might associate with the Victorian era and trying to do some interesting edits. I’ve started with a narrow boat on the canal. I cropped the image a lot, so the subject dominates the picture.

Neodigital Art | High definition editing

A POLICE STATION

I’ve started today with an image of a Victorian police station. The angle of the shot makes it quite imposing and I’ve converted it to grey scale.  It seems to convey a mood and with more editing, it could be used as a book cover.

Neodigital Art | Artistic editing

DARLO

Darlaston is a local town with quite a few Victorian buildings, so we wandered around there a couple of years ago taking a few photos. These pictures can be edited and the ‘modern’ things taken out to give the picture a real Victorian look.

Setting priorities

Bradley 022

I’m hoping to go out and take a few photos this weekend if the rain stops. Everything in my garden is growing fast and it’s the same with parks and nature reserves. They are all getting a little overgrown. How important are these facilities to the public. Should we spend lots of money keeping them maintained?

Neodigital Art | Guest pictures and edits

Norfolk Broads Friday 19 April 2013 Windmill

This is a photo that Simon James took on the Norfolk Broads (England) some time ago. I’ve edited it and the main thing was to add contrast. Simon often zooms in too close to the subject, but he has it about right with this photo.

Black Country Art review

a bridge

I’ve come to the end of my art week and so I thought I would start today with an artistic edit. You never know, pictures like this might be displayed in the art gallery one day. We could launch a whole new school of art from here in the Black Country. We could call it, “Flyin’ Pigs”. We could do worse…

Starting your own art collection

Spring flowers 2013 063

Continuing the art week theme. Why not start your own art collection? On a budget of course! All you need to begin, is an A4 picture frame from Poundland and a picture to put in it. Art is about acceptance and so any picture that you like and accept is suitable. Then you can hang it on the wall anywhere you like.

Neodigital Art | The River Tame

Spring flowers 2013 086 edit

Neodigital Art is about editing pictures to create something with emotion. I was quite annoyed when I took this photo, because the sun had gone behind a black cloud. I’ve used colorize in PhotoScape for an artistic edit. What do you think?

Bank holiday blues

Lock and Sandwell Valley 018

Yes, it’s Bank Holiday weekend again and the kids are off school for Whitsun. The Ikea sale will start on Monday and the stupid people will queue along the M6 for that. If you have to go to the  Ikea sale; go next week, it runs until June 23rd.

Neodigital Art | Stylish editing

Lock old photo

I managed to take a few photos on Sunday and so I went back to see this lock-keepers cottage in Walsall. There are some leaves on the trees now and although the sun was going lower, I got a different photograph.

Neodigital Art | What is Art?

DUCKS 004

Pictures were drawn by early man, on the walls of caves with whatever he could find. The earliest pictures were probably done with chalk and maybe charcoal. Some artists still use charcoal. Artists tend to be avant garde, the advanced guard, exploring the new frontiers. They search for new ideas and new mediums.

Reflections on life

Cart

Sometimes, I think as a society we take one step forward and two steps backwards. There are lots of experiments that seem to fail. The big pink box on West Bromwich High Street is still referred to as ‘iconic’, but in reality it’s a failed experiment. They intend to use it as a sixth form college now. (more…)


Neodigital Art | Getting creative with PhotoScape

A The Milky

The whole idea of art is to experiment and use your creativity to the maximum. You might not get it right every time, but you can create something and then just see how it looks. I’m getting really creative this week, with PhotoScape.
