Walt Disney created the concept of Imagineering and I think it is a powerful process for the artist to expand their creative process. We’ve all hit the creative wall and many have heard the phrase “thinking outside the box”. Well that’s great but how do you do it. You can check out the Wikipedia on Imagineering, but I’ll show you what it means to me as a artistic photographer. I do lots of standard landscapes, cityscapes, and wildlife imaging but when I think I am getting stale I turn to digital art to help me imaggineer better still images. I look at still images I have taken and try to develop an alternative reality for that image. I use a combination of Photoshop/LR and On1 software to create this Imagineering alternative vision. Here are a few results of what I have done to refresh my standard vision.
