Moon Harvest

Last week a new iMac was delivered together with Adobe CS6 Premium Production software which includes amongst others Premiere Pro (movie editing) and Photoshop. All together a very extensive software program and it will take a few months before we can master the majority of possibilities. This week we started to ‘play’ with Photoshop. Amazing to experience how we were able to manipulate pictures and we are just at the beginning of the exploration. The very low resolution photo assemble you see at the top is just an example. Note: the original Moon picture (see below and made with Sony Alpha77 VQ with Sigma 70-300 lens) was a 20MB file and the additions (snapshots with Sony Cybershot) 75KB each. That explains why the end result is far from perfect but it provides at least an indication of the direction we’re looking into: creating art posters in limited editions. It will take at least 6 to 8 months before we start marketing these via online shops in amongst others the USA and the African Continent. Here are the pictures of which the featured photograph is assembled:
