    Photo - Prickly spines... (2)

    Awesomeness! Looks like a model of an atom or molecule. I wish I had something of the same caliber but I haven't been using the macro on my sigma lens, I am however working on a new halloween project. I think it was last year i focused my illustration and did a set of Nightmare on Sesame St. I don't know if the photos are on my profile you are more welcome to look. the goal this photo project is to actually give me a way to display my current ability to use graphics in a more natural way if that makes sense, so the models will use less cosmetic make-up and hopefully I will have the right method and techniques to display my vision. oh actually I just recalled I have this photo maybe you have already seen it, Definitely a top favorite for me. im working with a Sigma 17-70 a range I find very useful for its price. im guessing the longer the focal length the deeper you can get into a subject. maybe I can find a nice prime one.

    nice subject, lots of features you can stare at... almost looks like microscopic not macroscopic, like looking at a micro organism. cool colors, is the black background edited in or a backdrop of some kind? the textures are vivid, love that its not to crazy with the depth of field. what kind of lens were you working with?

    Nephews First Soccer Game

    yeah so interesting enough I think the first photo was kind of a unique affect actually done on AF. Photo. I used the black and white tool, because the grass was picking up more yellow when I adjusted it that affect happened naturally. I actually thought it was pretty cool and over dramatic made the grass look more like they were playing in sticks.

    Nephews First Soccer Game

    Yesterday my nephews first soccer game my brother (his dad) had asked me to do the photography for his first game ever. I took this time to make a spread to show a few photography, editing styles. Used Our favorite program of course. His parents were very pleased, and was kind enough to allow me to show case a few photos on here. Enjoy.

    logo-ish thoughts?

    also im seeing if I can come up with a new logo for myself. here is the original being the last image... I Wassinspired but a group of chairs and table at a ball room. its a lot going on for a logo but I think I like the idea of just AP and get rid of everything else. I do like the way this image turned out, my thought immediately went to "Tea Party with the mad Hatter"interesting what the brain can pull out of its hat, other that or some joker, and Harley Quinn theme

    after the show - new alley photo

    so when it comes to the ladies who have a big impact and influence on my life the two in the photo are it. we just took a seat after an award show. we are at the bar I once was general manager, now I run my own media and design company and on this day both Splash the Bar and myself "Andy Photo" received our award for top 25 Best LGBTQ owned and operated businesses of the Silicon Valley 2018 Presented by The SV Business Journal great time great honor. second photo is their legs crossed , noticed the symmetry. plus they sport some athletic legs hopefully it becomes one of those random iconic photos lol. the final photo is actually one I took in the morning after around 6am after I got off of another part time job I Have in the city. all photos were cropped and edited by . Affinity Photo. Enjoy

    Designer freezes on a Mac when selecting a font

    Designer freezes on a Mac when selecting a font

    has there been any progress on this issue both designer and photo do it on my Mac as well. I went as far as uninstalling both programs and reinstalling it. really don't want to have to do a factory boot on my Mac. even though most of my stuff is on cloud. Im rooting for a solution, My current solution and oddly this works, is to just high light a font I like from a web page and paste it in designer and it strangely works cause its not a font that saved in my font book. even when I try to download a font it won't be recognized or theres some error so I delete it and try another one.

    San Jose doesn't have a very amazing skyline I blame the airports proximity, no building over 23 stories or something like that so planes can obviously land. the second photo is of what is our "Central Park" Caesar Chavez always a good spot to take photos. A lot of my photos come out looking very Gotham. I like it, feels mysterious
