This was inspired by the always awesome art piece, “Butterflies In The Attic” I always thought it was a neat and creative concept so I put my Canon 6D on a timer, took a shot and made the edit. I made the butterflies in 3D Studio max and rendered them out with VRAY. Those little speckles I brought in are all tiny butterflies rendered off of 3DS Max’s particle array system. There’s at least four thousand of those little guys in this piece. All original, all good! Click on the image below for the full size. Read more!
I wanted to show everyone a side of Milwaukee Wisconsin that a lot of people in other areas may have not have seen. Just near the Abraham Lincoln memorial you can follow a trail to the structure with three pillars to a Vietnam Memorial.

Adding fire to your subject is pretty simple. I did this in roughly 10 minutes but you can make something really special if you take your time.

“Alright, here goes. I’m old. What that means is that I’ve survived (so far) and a lot of people I’ve known and loved did not. I’ve lost friends, best friends, acquaintances, co-workers, grandparents, mom, relatives, teachers, mentors, students, neighbors, and a host of other folks. I have no children, and I can’t imagine the pain it must be to lose a child. But here’s my two cents. I wish I could say you get used to people dying. I never did. I don’t want to. It tears a hole through me whenever somebody I love dies, no matter the circumstances. But I don’t want it to “not matter”. I don’t want it to be something that just passes. My scars are a testament to the love and the relationship that I had for and with that person. And if the scar is deep, so was the love. So be it. Scars are a testament to life. Scars are a testament that I can love deeply and live deeply and be cut, or even gouged, and that I can heal and continue to live and continue to love. And the scar tissue is stronger than the original flesh ever was. Scars […] Read more!
