Blog

This blog will be in no particular order, just a place to post non portfolio images and associated stories as I travel throughout my career as a visual artist.

More M&Ms 44/365

The completed collection:)

So I went ahead and completed the collection of M&M colors.  Inspired by a Petapixel timelapse article of a man who filmed the dissolving process, I thought what a great idea for a poster.  Now, going back to the other day with the jewelry I attached the same lens sans 20mm tube.  Inverted the tripod center so the camera could face fully down and adjust the height so it was focused directly on the M&M in a small glass.

Using only one light on full power, this type of shot could be done by anyone with a single light source:)  After each color was shot and imported, I cleaned up them up in LR/PS by adding some clarity and increasing the blacks to cover up the cup edge.  Arranged them as a grid and that was pretty much it.

Busted out the 11x17 Promaster Metallic paper and fired up the Canon PRO-100.  BOOM, instant art for Myrt's room:)
