What is surrealism?

Surrealism is a 20th-century literary and artistic movement that attempts to express the workings of the subconscious by fantastic imagery and incongruous juxtaposition of subject matter.

Surreal in general means bizarre or dream

Surrealism? "You can convince someone that a lemon is an orange, but it's still a bloody lemon."
Steve Milne

'To make the abnormal look normal and the normal look abnormal.' - Salvador Dali

Surrealism artist
Claude Cahun/Salvador Dali/Robert Willem Vanderhorst

Surrealism in Photography

People will say is this digital art or photography.

You can go for digital art such as using 2/3 images and putting them together and so on just playing around with PS.

Maybe you could edit the message to clearly indicate that. Maybe use "Other images:" above those last two links. No prob about linking to the image (with credit of course). I just don't want people to think those others are mine as well....

The sunflower power shot is fantastic. I hope you won an award for that one.

I can see why you like it! Did you take that with your 10-22? Looks wide, but not distorted.

Not sure if you would count these as surrealistic or not but they sure are odd.
All were done using focus stacking. Pics #1 &3 I knew would not stack- the images were different but yielded interesting results. Pic #2 was a stack I thought should work but didn't- the spider had obviously moved too much :)

I like the sunflowers. I was just out shooting today and saw a field of dead sunflowers. I Was thinking about snapping shots then I came back and saw yours. Totaly Awesome. Ok I will thinking of some Surrealism shots over the next week. Game on!


Canon 20D - and a bunch of lens normal and L.

All I really want to do is take pictures and have fun, its not about the number of toys but how well you can take that one shot!

yea I am up in thornton. I was just out to the airport to take pictures and now they have signs all up and down 96th or 104th (what ever it is after it curves by DIA) that says no stoping or parking. So much for getting pictures of the planes coming and going.

So anyways the sunflower field I was looking to take shots of was just east on 104th passed hi-way 2.

Yep, that's the same area where I took that Sunflower Power shot as well as the series of sunflower harvest images in my gallery.

Best,
KAC
P.S. I'm actually in the Aurora area, lived in Thornton a couple of years back.

The sunflowers pic is spectacular alright.


Justin Keery. 20D, 17-85 IS, 70-300 IS and f1.8 "nifty fifty". OK so I've got the equipment right at last, time to focus entirely on the photography!
