Levitation

This is a little tutorial on how to make a subject float using Photoshop. Its quick and convincing.

Firstly, tripod your camera, compose and focus on where your subject is going to be. then shoot a frame without the subject.

Gilbert Bayes:Architectural Work

Gilbert Bayes

Born in London into a family of artists, Bayes’ lengthy career began as a student under Sir George Frampton and Harry Bates, and so became associated with the British New Sculpture movement who included such notable sculptures such as Alfred Gilbert and Edward Onslow Ford with its focus on Architectural sculpture.

Bayes is perhaps best remembered for his interest in colour, his association with the Royal Doulton Company, and his work in polychrome ceramics and enamelled bronze such as the Queen of Time Clock, undertaken for Selfridges in 1930 . His major ceramic frieze at the Doulton Headquarters of 1938 was rescued in the 1960s when the building was demolished. It was renovated and re-located to the gallery at the Victoria and Albert Museum which bears his name, but now resides at the V&A’s entrance to the recently redeveloped Architecture Gallery.

He served as President of the Royal British Society of Sculptors from 1939 through 1944. He died in London in 1953. Bayes’ home at 4 Greville Place in St. John’s Wood bears a blue plaque placed by English Heritage in 2007.
