MattCreate - Where I'm going...

Photo by Jehyun Sung on Unsplash

After many months of little or no activity, MattCreate is coming back to life! However, the site will have a wider focus than before.

Not only will the site feature my photography and photo art, I will also be posting some writing and cartooning.  In the past, I probably would've put my different types of work on different sites. But I've been thinking lately that it's a better idea if I keep all of my various types of work all in one place.

I know my new direction may not be of interest to all, and some will unfollow me. I do understand. I will miss you, but wish you a fond farewell. I do however hope to see some new followers start to trickle in, and I sincerely welcome you.

Start to look for my new work soon!

Zaradye Park, Moscow

Ah, nothing like being in a new city to get the creative photography juices running again.  (Although this was my second time in Moscow).  This one was taken with my phone, which has much better low light performance than my Canon has.  Of course, the Canon is practically a dinosaur by digital photography standards.

At the Bolshoi

Moscow, Russia.  Come on man, this was just too perfect.  I mean, a ballerina posing outside the Bolshoi?  Who could pass that up?  Though it probably had nothing to do with the Bolshoi itself; it was likely just someone hired for a photoshoot.

Shadows of Chernobyl

On a scale of Photo Realistic (1) to Photo Fantasy (10), I went for about a 3 on this one.  Though the closer you look at it, the less photo realistic it appears. 

Since the original photo had a washed out sky, I put in a better sky, not only on the sky portion, but for the whole photo.  The reddish purplish tones in the water are actually a sunset.  The other major alteration was to put it through Topaz Glow.  

The biggest complication with this photo was the sunken riverboat.  It always wanted to turn out too dark.
