Paul my lecturer has given me food for thought, I'm slowly exploring the manipulation of images to create dark and different moods. Now, in Photoshop, this is never that hard, just sometimes time consuming if you have to trace around the side of a spiky building. But it can be done, and usually the results look good. I literally knocked up a quick one in under 5 minutes, just to give a sense of what I'm trying to get at here.
I'm calling this next image 'A nanosecond after the nuclear bomb'
It would be the last thing your eyes would ever see
It would be literally split seconds before you would be vaporised and burnt alive
It's the kind of image we will never get to see first hand
Hopefully you can see where I'm coming from
