Ode to Wayne

Ode to Wayne, originally uploaded by billselak.

This seems like a shot Wayne would be proud of... the depth of field and the dirt. It's like you can taste the grime.

Worn, originally uploaded by billselak.

My old electric guitar case; I think I've had it for 12 years now. I like the detail in this shot--how the tweed pattern slowly goes out of focus.

Check it out large on black.

Climbing Point Dume

Climbing Point Dume, originally uploaded by billselak.

Ryan turned 30 and wanted to climb in Malibu. Here he is, footsteps from the ocean.

Photoshop notes: I took the original and applied a Lomo Cross Process with Kodak Film (Alien Skin Exposure is awesome); next, I inverted the image in a new layer and changed the blending mode to color (for the red sky); finally, I duplicated that layer, changed the blending mode to color dodge, and masked away all but a few highlight details (face and rocks). Or, if you're not photoshop-savvy, I tweaked it a bit.

Walking back from breakfast in Bayfield, Wisconsin. The roads are made of bricks and the fences made of gumdrops.
