About “Not a Target”

Julien Masson of Artsim was keen to design something that was clean fun and good to look at but mindful of the plight of rhinos in the wild. He chose the distinct patterns used for target practice and covered the rhino with them. “I like the idea of attracting but also repelling the beholder and hope it’s understood that I’m not trying to make a simple joke and that there is a serious subject matter behind this piece”.

Another break in the Go rhinos series,and yet another picture of my daughter Emily. This time taken with her camera a Nikon 5100 with a Sigma 17-50 lens.I did the black and white conversion in PS CC.
This camra and lens combo are a real class act.

‘Augustus, was designed and painted by four of our very talented art students. Maddy Carter, Lauren Cron, Becky Feltham and Sophie Milner, all 18, and all studying art courses at the college, entered a competition to design the rhino.’

for this shot I converted to Black and white I then used Apertures “Brush away Black and White” function. It works just like History Brush in PS.
