Photoshop Tennis art + my commentary now online
I had a ball narrating yesterday’s bout of Photoshop–er, Layer–Tennis. All ten quick rounds are now online (note the little 1-10 nav bar on the right just below the image). I was pleased to make fun of hipsters & Sun Tzu, quote my two-year-old & AJ Soprano, and reference Joy Division & Danzig. (You’ll see.)
Many thanks to hosts Jim Coudal & team, and to competitors Khoi & Nicholas, for a great time. (Coincidentally, given the subject matter of Khoi’s final volley, I was wearing the perfect shirt at the time, featuring a skull shooting lasers out of its eyes.)
(rt) Photography: Volcanoes, Olympians, lasers, & more
- Martin Rietze captured some beautiful volcanic lightning. (“I’d be charged, too, if I were shot out of the center of the earth,” says my wife.)
- No sci fi: Infrared photos of a 747 shooting down a missile with a laser. (Can ill-tempered sea bass be far behind?) Apparently it happened not far from where I’m typing this.
- “If you are intrigued by physics and love photography,” says Katrin Eismann, check out the work of Caleb Charland.
- Oddly compelling: “Vans and the places where they were.” (As long as “lingering outside my house” isn’t featured, we’re cool.) [Via]
