Richard Prince, Art Thief!

I saw a report on the artist Richard Prince.He is known for taking other peoples photos, making slight alterations and calling them his own. Currently, he has a big show of work he took from Instagram. He has taken photos he has found on Instagram (all women, I think), added short comments and has blown them up and printed them on large canvases. The images end up being in the range of 3 feet x 4 feet. here is an article from the Washington Post on The Thief:

By the way, his images are for sale for $90,000!

Cabo Surf Shots

Top one is "Birds Eye View", bottom… just "Nice Wave". Wish I had a longer lens! Quite a bit of noise, both not super sharp… I cropped in a lot.

RAW Conversion Program

Here is an interesting RAW program you can check out via a trial download.  It is said to have a minimalist approach to processing.  It has a lot of interesting RAW processing features and looks like it is suited for those who are interested in a minimal post processing approach (there are some delusional folks like me out there).  It also appears possibly useful as an adjunct to the usual processing programs from the "monolith" Adobe.  So far, I probably won't use it as it is quite easy to be minimalist regarding post processing with the conventional Adobe tools.

Variation on a Theme

I took the last one I posted and applied a couple of Nik filters to it. I just went through a number of the filters until I got an effect I liked. I had to shake it up a little!!

One More

I hope that I am not boring you!!
