Noticed a three guitar image by Bdanju here: http://tinyurl.com/6qcyugj

I thought, easy to do. Wrong! Not easy. Guitars are difficult to make good images of.

My efforts here:

Guitars would be an interesting challenge, project or competition. As the key block and the sound hole are so far apart on the guitar, there is more of a challenge. I Hope to see more good guitar images. So far I'm in a bit of a rut for ideas. TG

Excellent Stephen. That's an approach I admit not thinking of. Very effective. Adds a lot of theater and power to guitars and I imagine other subjects as well.

My 3 Guitarz are here..

May work with mine as well. They are quite bright though. TG

Here's a high-key shot I created in a studio. Lights on full power, camera on tripod, moved camera from left to right while depressing the shutter button. Results were what I had hoped for. I've sold a few copies of this at craft fairs.

Sold a couple of this too. Macro shot of my fiddle.

Mixed media here. This is a 35mm Mono shot. Printed it on artist's canvas treated with liquid emulsion. When it finally dried out (after about 3 weeks) I painted it with water colours. Haven't sold any prints of this one, but I live in hope!

Wow! No limits on imagination here. You just broadened my mind and no smoking required. Lots to run with... all the macro things to do and the combinations. Thanks for the paydirt Big Al. Now you got things loosened up. TG

That Takamine key head is a classic. Nothing like gold on black velvet. And all those Robaxaset woodmen you hired for the audience scene with the bank of big screen TVs. There's some reaching to do before getting that together. Feature parts of the guitar. Much like classic car features images. Great stuff! TG

Big Al, I also enjoyed your You Tube production ' Bit of a beat'. That was some piece of work. The fades and opens and the images....all good stuff! TG
Thanks tonyguitar for your kind comments. It was created in ProShow Gold, making use of panning and zooming, and layers. Lots of Photoshop CS3 used too to cut out the various instruments. I'm currently learning my way round Irish Bouzouki and I'm hoping to get involved with some traditional musicians with a view to making some AV/videos to upload to my IrishAncestry channel on Youtube. (Nothing on it yet). I'm intending using ProShow Gold, Serif MoviePlus X5 and Photoshop CS5 Extended. Got the last two cheap as a mature student. I'm using a FujiFinePix S3 Pro with a few Nikkor lenses and a Sigma 10-20 and for video I have a Sony Handycam 19E. For audio recording I have a Sony MiniDisc with a pair of Stereo mics sourced from Ebay which gives decent quality sound (can capture high notes on fiddle OK). I want to link to these from my website www.irishancestry.biz when I get them uploaded. I'll also upload to my Facebook business page http://www.facebook.com/IrishAncestor Feel free to take a look.
