Misc Images

These are pretty much randomly chosen screenshots and production images, plus some photos, in no particular order…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Darktable

I’m going to have to check out “Darktable,” a GNU-license photo management app similar to Lightroom and Aperture. It’s claim to fame (aside from being free) is it’s blazing fast performance thanks to GPU¬†acceleration. If you like photography as much as me, and you are using a *nix OS, this is probably worth a look.

Iguana in Belize

Why am I posting this? Because I needed an image of iguana skin for a texture and pulled out this shot I photographed a couple of years ago in Belize, and thought it was a shame to just put the image “back in the drawer” with thousands of others. Be free, little guy!

Playing with NPR

I’ve been playing around with a little app on my iPhone which creates NPR sketch effects from photos (I gather made by Bruce Gooch, who has done a lot to advance the state of the art in ‘painterly’ and ‘sketchy’ image manipulation.)¬†ToonFX

Two of my dogs
Two of my Great Pyrenees dogs, Frankie and Hutch.

The app is simple but with a little effort and insight you can get some good results.
