Nature/High Magnification Photography
Digitally added elements (see notes)
This image will have a special meaning for some
(The curious can always just ask me...)
I took the photograph used in this image in 1989 with an Olympus OM-1
attached to a Questar telescope on 25 speed Kodak Ektar film. You don't see many pictures
like it, mainly because not many people point a telescope at an object 4 meters away when
they are attempting this type of photography. Come to think of it, normal people do not
use 25 speed film for this type of work either. None-the-less, I thought the outcome was
worth the effort.
Additional elements for the final composition where created in Poser 3. I
then combined the photograph with the new Poser 3 generated elements in Paint Shop Pro 5.
I tend not to use layers, I prefer going pixel by pixel and using a very careful choice of
various blurs. Takes longer, but I like the results.
