I haven't posted anything new in quite a while due to some lingering illness, but lately I've been getting back into things photographically (and some wacky Post processing creative editing also!). I just wanted to share with our UHH crew 4 of my favorite recently "Morphed" images. And I'm pretty sure that many of you may say, after seeing these, something like "Holy crap! What kind of whack-job nutcase IS this guy, anyways??!" Not sure if it's my Agent Orange-diminished mind, or only just being a pre-demetia 72yr old guy, but my imagination can really seem to run a little too wild these days! I even bought me a DJI Mavic Air Drone to explore new and different aerial ways to get myself into "photographic trouble"! (so, please stay tuned for details at 6, film at 11, eh?)
The "morphs" below I've entitled 1. "Amish InterstellarTerrafarming", 2. "Crocodilicus", 3. "The Elken Full Moon" and 4. "On the Rise of Humanity". All were shot with a Nikon D810, and creatively reconstructed using Corel PhotoPaint X7 for building of structure, and Adobe LightRoom for color, tone etc.
General build info of how I put together these "Morphs":
1. The Amish always being kind of camera shy, I had to snap this Amish team of horses with a 300mm lens from nearly 1/4 mile away, edited it for 3D, color etc., and superimposed it over a stock far-away planet image (and NO, I'm not FROM that planet!)
2. Only just used a closeup of a gnarly old log, and built in stock photos of an eye along with some fierce teeth, and blended them into a kind of monstrous Crocodilicus superimposed over a stock jungle background image.
3. Using a full moon shot and silhouetted elk herd shot with 300mm lens, I blended them over a stock 'grunge' background.
4. A Lake Erie sunset, an ape I shot at the Pittsburgh Zoo and a stock skull image were blended and morphed into this thought- provoking final!
Finally, please do feel free to recommend some psychotherapy consultation for me if you'd like to!!! But otherwise, I sure do hope y'all get a kick out of these "Morphs"..ENJOY!!
