Another photography / AI mashup! I really like the surreal, otherworldly feel that I'm getting with these.


This one started out as a photo of a girl with an umbrella. I merged and manipulated with photos of waves and bricks which resulted in the hills and ground texture. Fire photos provided the flames and various others provided some extra color and other cool effects. Many of the mashed photos were iterated over several times to get a more distinct 'burn-in' for the parts they were affecting.

As the umbrella 'melted', it looked more and more like a mushroom and tried to incorporate images that would promote the idea of a Mushroom Temple. 


I've had a lot of fun with this, so expect to see more from me over the coming weeks!

I'm also considering possibly converting some of these into NFTs so that they can be displayed as artwork in Decentraland, CryptoVoxels, Sandbox and whatever other immersive worlds are coming to the blockchain space.


All images used in this creation were personal photos of mine.


You can view many of my other photos on various websites.
