For the past two weeks my digital media students have been playing around with text effects in Photoshop. This is an example of one of the effects I showed them. For those who have never been there, Bryce Canyon is one of the natural wonders of the world. The giant hoodoos that make up the canyon floor are works of art carved from the stone by centuries of erosion. Perhaps it is best summed up by the famous words of Ebenezer Bryce (who the canyon is named after) who described it as, “A hell of a place to lose a cow.” Placing the image inside of the text puts a new spin on a well photographed icon.
The image was captured using a Canon 1Ds, 17-35mm lens (set to 34mm), at 100 ISO. The camera was supported using a Gitzo tripod with a Kirk Enterprises’s ball head. The image was taken just before sunrise.
