A while back, BPN Out of the Box moderator Denise Ippolito, a talented, creative photographer, introduced me to Fractalius, a Photoshop plug-in that can be used to create unusual, eccentric artwork from a photograph in a single step. The effects are based on the extraction of an image’s hidden fractal textures. It can also be used to simulate various types of exotic lighting and ultra-realistic pencil sketches. I was so excited by the look and feel of the images that I asked Denise to create a tutorial for her favortie Fractalius setting, Glow 100. Click here: http://www.birdsasart.com/bn315.htm and scroll down to see four of Denise’s fabulous Fracted images and to read the Glow 100 tutorial. You can check out both of her Fractalius tutorials and learn more about Denise by clicking here: http://deniseippolito.smugmug.com/ and scrolling down. Be sure to visit some of her galleries too.

I will be on the road for 2 1/2 weeks for the Sarasota Audubon Program (see in the Bulletin), the SW FLA IPT, and the NANPA Summit in Reno, NV. Then it’s home for a few days and off to Midway! I will be posting here regularly.
