Sky art by Thomas Lamedieu

French illustrator Thomas Lamedieu used the little available space to make what he calls Sky Art. Using just the space between the rooftops, he transformed the small amounts of sky into pieces of art.
Painting with food
Artist Hong Yi decided to play with her food 30 days and make illustrations and paintings with it. She made two rules, the image had to be made of food only and the backdrop would always be a white plate.
What she ended up with were painting and illustrations of landscapes, animals, the story of the three little pigs and a even a portrait of Justin Bieber.
The project is still ongoing. if you want to see Hong Yi’s latests creations then head over to her Facebook page.

Abandoned in the Garden of Questionable Intent
Beautiful photography by Philneff at deviantart. This photo featuring model Emily in a foggy forest was taken at Blue Ridge Parkway, Virginia.
What’s most beautiful about this photograph is how the fog creates layers of trees and emphasizes the model in a very subtle way.

This is one of the artistic nude shots I’m most proud and I finally got to share it. I shot this in the studio a while ago. The model is actually sitting on a table in front of a white background. I used two strobes to light the background and a small softbox to add some details in her face.
Double Exposure Paintings by Pakayla Biehn
Double exposure is an art in itself. It isn’t used that much nowadays in photography since almost everybody has a digital camera now. Artist Pakayla Rae Biehn took the concept of double exposure and applied it to her paintings. She uses images of other artists and paints another layer on them, creating beautiful images in the process.
