Picture of a Circuit City, an aerial view of a city constructed from circuit boards illustrating urban communications and networking. Photo of A city made of circuit boards from a high altitude perspective symbolizing technology, communications and networking. Concept stock collection includes this aerial view of a city at night made from circuit boards; A high tech city. Photo of a city made out of circuit boards. In this stock photo of a city, constructed out of circuit boards, I first photographed Houston from a helicopter. That was many years ago when i was on an extensive shoot for DHL. They had me photograph their facilities from the air in Huston, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and Seattle...not a bad gig, eh? Next I inverted the image making it look like a night shot. After that, I copied and pasted numerous circuit boards (most taken from my then defunct Mac FX computer) into the image and used the distort mode to add the desired shape and perspective in order to replace the walls and roofs of the high rise buildings that populate that section of downtown Huston. After sizing, positioning, and adding the necessary perspective to the boards, I used adjustment layers and/or layer masks with duplicated and adjusted layers, to add gradated color and tonal variations to the "walls" of the buildings. I created complex clipping paths up and down the streets, then "stroked" them with an "airbrush" using various opacity settings to create the feeling or impression of traffic moving along the streets...traffic that symbolizes the flow of data, information, and communications. This is truly a "high tech" city relying on circuitry and computer mother boards rather than mortar and bricks, roads and streets. The image is arresting, colorful, dynamic and attention-grabbing. It speaks of the way forward, the future, and change. This is truly a city of the future! The result is a stock photo that is a metaphor for the future, for the information era and for the communications dependent world. This high-tech looking city can be useful for a wide variety of stock picture applications ranging from catalog covers, to magazine covers, to ads for communications and networking products and services. Once, a man looked at this image, turned to me and said "Oh, that's Huston." Now how on earth could he have known that was Huston? Strange!The buildings are replaced with circuit boards, the image was converted (reversed) to a negative, and it is a small portion of Huston photographed from the air. Truth can be stranger than fiction! This concept stock picture, a complex digital composite, consisted of the Huston shot and over a dozen separate photos of circuit boards. This was back in the days when digital cameras were first coming onto the scene...around 1996. I had an early Leaf Digital Camera Back, mounted on a Hasselblad camera. The camera required three exposures, using a color wheel with red, green, and blue filters, to capture a color image. The picture took me two days of digital work to complete. As a stock photo it has sold well and was certainly worth the effort involved!
