Photography: Digital, Black & White on Paper.
Taken in San Antonio, the foundation photo of this image was originally in color of drab maroon and off white. I transformed it into a black and white work . . . and roughed it up a bit.
Bob Deever, SMSgt (ret), USAF, is my brother and is very forgiving of my manipulations of his original work - which is great without my intrusion. Still . . .
I cropped and toned the original for a base that would allow many versions of it to be created from it. Naturally, the original was saved in case I decided to crop and tone a different way for an altogether different approach.
Upon determining the base look, I then experiment with 20 to 60 versions of it - changing colors, applying filters, embedding additional images, digitally painting them and transforming them from a recognizable photograph into this altogether new work . . . black and white.
