Photo-based art can be a lot of fun, and after browsing through some photos taken by myself and immediate family members I decided to have a play with it again, on a bigger scale than I’ve done before. The photos were taken by my Dad, sister-in-law and younger brother as well as myself. They (the photos) were mostly shot in Thailand although the butterflies are far more likely to be found in Queensland, Australia (they’re big butterflies, I’m sure they can cross an ocean or two…)!
I put it all together in Adobe Photoshop CS3, where I found I had to do a fair bit of painting to improve some of the tiger photos since they were taken on a variety of cameras, and they definitely weren’t shot with this kind of thing in mind. It was enjoyable, and I wouldn’t mind working with photos more often!
