    Album Cover Art

    Hello Artists, I have developed a very unique style of photography that may appeal to you in an abstract way. If anyone is interested, please contact me..

    I'm particularly fond of #5. Interesting work.

    These are all really cool. I think my favorite is either #3 or #5.

    Care to spill the beans on how you do it?

    A visual treat & beautiful work! Missed this or would have posted sooner.

    The thing is, in my extensive searches on the internet, I have not found anyone else doing anything like this. I'm not saying it makes it great or even popular, but it does make them unique.

    While I prefer to keep my exact process to myself, I will tell you how it started, about 8 years ago a guy from Australia posted a picture on a photography website that I frequent. He took a picture of a clear glass marble and copied it three times in Photoshop, then changed the colors to red, blue and green. This intrigued me as an artist and after countless experiments I came up with the process I now employ. I can tell you though, it is extremely important to me to show the colors as they are shot, I am firmly against any color or shapes manipulations in Photoshop as I want me work to be 100% Photography with 0% Digital enhancements. The ONLY thing I do in Photoshop is "Crop" and save the file in different file formats.

    Cheers (and thanks Geezer...)

    Thank you, Mythos!
    I very much appreciate the glimpse into your approach. Very cool! And I admire that you don't mess too much with things in the editing process. I too prefer for the magic to happen in the brain/camera interface, not in an editing program.

    Wow. Very cool stuff. And I admire the integrity of the process, too.

    Well, if you're talking about iTunes then you can go into the the Advanced options and click on Get Album Art if that doesn't get all you're art then play a song that you want to get art for and then in the bottom left hand corner click the button with the triangle inside of the square, then you should see a larger square that says Drag Album Artwork Here then google the name of then band and album and find the album searching for only medium or large images makes the quality alot better, anyways check it for know more about arts then if you have a Mac view the full size image and just drag it where it says Drag Album Artwork Here and if you on a PC I dont know if you can drag but you can save the image to your desktop and then drag the file onto the same place. Hope I Helped
