His Program:  Using the Creative Mind


1. Painted images- How to layer painting effects into original photographs in order to create a unique look.


2. Texturizing Images- This technique can be used to add texture to selected parts of an image and thus creating a very unique look.


3. TImescapes- This technique allows for multiple exposure over very long periods of time which creates very unusual images of moving objects.


4. Infrared- How to get started with infrared images. In the old days you needed special film and special handling, now cameras can easily be converted.
