What you see here is an example of a very special and unique graphic digital treatment that combines photography and sensitomic interpretation. Put simply, the colors and tonality curves of photos are identified, isolated, and interpreted very purposely and precisely.
The original process that inspired this rendering is called posterization, and can be experienced in Photoshop and other image processing applications.
Typical Photoshop posterization results are very mathematical and crude.
The Alius rendering process, literally by contrast and islolation, provides a totally controlled and nearly unlimited rendering platform for digital images. Alius is a creative wonderland for “graphic” interpretations where smooth gradations are replaced by precise pools of very accurate color. This treatment is best suited for bold and colorful interpretations.
Here’s another example. To appreciate this image even more, tap (Command-+/Control+) in your browser several times to enlarge and control the pictures.
At the moment, this software is not commercially available, though we are considering developing it for the general public.
I will be publishing examples of Alius interpretations on this blog frequently and we’ll gauge the potential of development on public reactions. In the mean time I will accept limited production work over the next several months as we explore the potential.
Comments and viewpoints are welcome.
