    Hello all,

    I'm Jem from Derbyshire
    I've been into photography since I was a kid
    I've always liked picking photographic genres and trying them out one at a time for quite some time and then going on to something else
    Years ago I came across the self images made by Anne Brigman in the first decade of the 20th C and in 1998 found the digital art montages of Catherine McIntyre
    At that time posing for self images and attempting montages scared the pants off me
    It took me another 13 years to begin teaching myself how to

    That is what I do now and what I will be posting here (well mostly)

    I lurked for awhile and read the rules etc and realised that unlike other forums I would be able to post links. Links to images where I will be able to show a 'before' and 'after' merging slowly into one another

    I hope that I will prove useful to members who would like to have a go at this montage caper
    '
    I joined today because I found MikeC's 'Getting Arty' in the 'All other images forum' a extravaganza of colour!

    Cheers - Jem

    Hi and welcome to the forum.

    We do prefer the images too be present in threads so members do not have to go off site to view them, but they can be linked into the threads, which presumably is what you meant?

    Hello Steve,

    Many thanks for the welcome nice of you.
    Now that I can post a link, my first I can offer an explanation;

    Firstly an image:

    [​IMG]

    From an as yet unnamed video
    Started with a rotten tree trunk
    To which I added a window which gave me my theme and title
    'Wood 'n Windows' (provisionally)

    This image began with a wall in Sheffield
    To which I added
    The Window (from a derelict house in Neepsend)
    The whitewash
    and me

    The 'projection' idea emerged from using the image as is
    And adding the street lighting and lightening the figure

    I'm looking around now for another window to see what will happen next.

    For anyone who like to see the original image cross fading into the above please go to: http://www.jemraid.co.uk/proj.html#pr and hover over the image with your mouse.

    Cheers and thanks - Jem

    Hello Mike,

    Many thanks for the welcome and for finding my stuff interesting.
    I like AA quotes; "The file is the score and the edit the performance"
    (Well he might have said that, using his own version of Photoshop)
    His print 'The Black Sun' is interesting

    Cheers - Jem

    Hello Electra,

    Many thanks for your lovely welcome :)
    I will be posting an image soon been working on it from early this morning
    Came across a video art call for responses to 7 fonts one of which was Bickham Script
    Not come across it before so I had to download it

    What to do though! Well bit of a cheat I suppose, I wrote down lots of words starting with B
    'Bark'll be the first one they'll probably chuck my video out
    But I always think everytime I do something I learn something so nothings lost.

    Cheers - Jem
