Digital Art. Bird Reflection.

Here is a digital “painting” I have been working on. Let me know what you think!

Mirrored Bird Landscape

 

This is the final version. I liked the color effects of the first one but it felt just a little too photoshop’d for me. Below is a more natural version, which I really love. You have to look closely to even realize it is two photos put together and that both of them are mirrored.

California Getaway

Not to long ago I uploaded a few pictures from when my girlfriend and I headed up a few hours North in California. I wanted to upload the rest of the images.

Living in California offers you so many benefits, but just like anywhere else you get busy and lazy all at the same time. Once in awhile force yourself somewhere new for a weekend.

Cayucos, CA has become one of my favorite places. We found it pretty much accidentally. Turns out when your driving along the coast and need to stop for a bathroom break it’s a beautiful bathroom break. After that we were staying in Cambria which was also a small little town. So small that it was hard to find a bar that was open past 8 PM. Much different than what we are used to in LA. We went and saw Herst Castle. It was amazing to be at a house that big and in such an amazing place. Best of all was being able to walk and hang out where some of the most famous people in the world did. Got to see where Charlie Chaplin hung out and played tennis. In one of the pictures you will even notice a landing strip.

These images have quickly become some of my favorites.

ETSY

In the continuing effort to sell my images online, my latest resource has become ETSY and twitter (@bluegiraffeimgs). My girlfriend has sold her clothing (she’s a clothing designer http://www.lilianlinares) on there for some time now and has had success with branching out and selling to people all over the world. Her main advice was to stay patient and keep on keepin’ on.

What advice do you guys have? Is anyone on etsy? Comment with a link to your store. We’re all in this together. Of course, if you have tips/tricks let me know.

The Macro Experiment

Maybe some of you have heard about the quick, easy, and cheap macro lens fake. Basically take your lens off your camera, flip it around and put it up to your shutter as if you were going to take a picture of the inside of your camera. I had seen this before and even saw that they sell ring adapters to mount the lens this way to your camera. First thought: if it really only cost 7 bucks (cost of adapter) to get a macro lens why didn’t everyone do it. Well to be fair, I didn’t get the mount – but I did hold it up to the camera.

Below are a few pictures of a starfish I took. They’re okay but in my opinion not even close to what a real macro lens could deliver. I want this to work… I really do.

What do you guys think? Have any of you tried this?  If some of you have the lens mount and it makes the world of different please let me know.

Blue Giraffe Images Store


Hey guys. The store is officially up and running. I will of course be taking pictures and updating all the time but check it out and let me know what you think. Maybe something is missing that you really want – feel free to help me out.

This store was created to help me with the burden of student loans (a few years after graduation and it only gets worse) so know that your money is going to a fundraiser of sorts. Maybe you can even make it tax deductable 😉 The goal is that I hopefully help you out with some nice wall art/photography and you help me out my making some small steps towards a big goal. Please read my about me for more information.
