perceptions

Our perceptions of life and the world we live in depends on how hard we’re finding it. When we’re struggling we become focused on the task in hand, trying desperately to make life easier. There are many people on Easy Street, but far more people struggling in Britain today. (more…)


What is art in 2015?

Art?

I’ve been thinking about art today. What is art? The dictionary defines art as “the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power.” (more…)


Experiments in photography and art

hand cart with border

This was one of my favourite photos and so I had it printed on canvas, 30 inches by 20 inches. Notice that I added a border for them to wrap around the frame. I took this at Forge Mill Farm in Sandwell Valley Country Park. (more…)


Creativity and learning

Artistic edit of a image

Today’s picture was taken in a place I often go and I’ve taken similar images many times. This time, I did something different, I used a filter and edited the picture differently to create art. Learning is about repetition, we keep practising until we have perfected the skill. (more…)

Wednesbury Flag

This was the result when I tried to design a flag for the town that I live in. It’s not much like a flag, but it’s quite artistic. I started with a photo of the church that overlooks the town and added a picture of a gull swooping down; then made it sepia and colorized it with Photoscape. (more…)


Life: Colourful or grey?

Narrowboat at Waterside Place, Walsall

I photographed some narrow-boats yesterday, they were very colourful. I talked to the owners and they were quite colourful too. They have chosen a slower, alternate way of life, travelling the canals and trading where they can to make a living. (more…)


Photography: Changing weather

1 art gallery

The weather keeps changing now and so I have to sometimes take photographs indoors. We took a few outdoors this week, but dropped into the art gallery to take a few in the afternoon. It’s advisable to have the flash off in an art gallery or museum because long term exposure can damage the paintings. (more…)


Photography: Buildings

1 Esso service station

The seasons are changing in England and so I had a lot of sunshine at the weekend and that gave me different things to worry about, like long shadows. I tried to get some photographs of buildings, because they hold more local interest. It’s a change from the usual landscape photography. (more…)


Photography: Macro shots

I’ve started today with a photo of my camera!  I bought that suction cup gadget from Amazon and it fixes to the wall for macro shots. I was using it to copy some postcards and other things when the battery needed charging, so I took this shot with my Samsung Galaxy 2 phone.  (more…)


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?
