Perspective – Set it straight – Carspace

Sawadee Khrap

I have been studying a terrific free course in drawing in perspective by Matt Kohr from CTRL+Paint – this is so crucial in paintings, drawings and Capture2creating realistic photomontages in Photoshop. And his web-page lead me to Warren’s program. What a life saver – now with Matt’s study principals and Carspace , all I have to do is to get proficient with it and use it on every image I produce – correct perspective – next I have to study shadows, the second most important aspect to making believable and realistic scenes.

So every once in a while I find a software that is a killer.   I hope I have some readers who are artists and are interested in how to calculate perspective for their drawings or how to create a perspective grid for an existing photograph.   To the rescue -  Warren Marshall  from Epic Games  released  CARSPACE perspective software (freeware)Capture



Hope you find these tutorials and software helpful.


Bang Saen Beach and Monkey Mountain

Sawadee Khrap

Just took a short trip about 40 KM North from Pattaya to Bang Saen _MG_3218Beach area to visit my friend, Don, in his new digs.   Great beach, clean, little or no farangs there, and so the locals are very friendly.  This family style beach is normally used by the folks from Bangkok, rather than going down to the Pattaya (sex) area, and by the students from the local schools and University.

As you can see in the slideshow there are some great walking only areas and tandem bicycle  rental places there.  Food everywhere and the vendors area is not in your face.  Ample chairs and huge long beach to wander about.

Looks like a wonderful beach to go to and relax —

From here we went to visit the “Monkey Mountain”  actually Khaoi Sam Muk and San Chao Mae Temple._MG_3259  Drove past these kids and got a wonderful “Hello” – ha ha._MG_3288

Most Thai’s know the background story of this mountain and the story of the lovers who jumped off the cliff after having vowed _MG_3342_MG_3311eternal love for each other. – now taken over by a large number of wild monkeys.

Nice view and plenty of monkeys to feed and photograph – the Monkey Temple around the corner is also a great photographic adventure – lots of detail in all the statues.

The slideshows tell it all – next time I will get more in depth images – hopefully of some of the college boys who hang out there and the local shopping mall not too far away.     Great living area Don
