Closing out this DADA Gallery Hop series with photos of these cute children dancing to 60’s British Invasion songs for perhaps, the first time.  I think they liked it!

Gallery Hop 4: The Dancers pt 2

In addition to the local British Invasion cover band, The GB’s, the May Gallery Hop appreciation for 60’s culture included these Go-Go dancers.  With these compositions, I continued my study of pop art styling workflows, first featured in my previous post.

Gallery Hop 4: The Dancers – pt 1

Going for a harder pop-art feel, I continued experimenting this week with several filter mash-ups.  This post features a blend of several cool posterization, solarize and other styling effects.

Just Play Yourself

I was photographing some outdoor sculptures for a friend when this young fellow walked by and asked if I would take his picture. “Sure”, I said, “just play yourself.”

He introduced himself as Joseph, and mentioned he’d like to make it in the music biz. I wanted the image to be something he could use to promote himhelf.  Perhaps a bit stylized for “street photography”, so I’ll refer to it as a “stylized street portrait.”

Pop Art Pop, 2 pics

One of my goals for 2017 is to branch out, experiment and work towards developing new styling techniques.  Saturday, I revisited the “relics graveyard” location I posted about back in September.  I arrived late in the day, the light was quickly waning.  Fortunately, I captured a few pictures of a rusty old 1947 Buick Super.  It occurred to me these old relics may look cool with some pop art styling.

After my typical processing workflow, I passed these images along to Filter Forge for some hard driving, solarization like, over-saturation styling.  One of the cool features of Filter Forge is the pattern and texture generators. I used this feature to create a cool background for the image below.  I’m pleased with the results.
