The copied masterpiece

Some time ago, you could read the strange story of how 1x photographer Bill Gekas managed to win a fine art painting contest with a photo and not even know about it. The truth was of course that someone had reproduced his photo as a painting and actually managed to win with it. For the full story, click here.

What the silly forgerer didn't know was that you don't have to make illegal copies to get as nice photos as Bill's. Bill is actually happy to tell you himself how he made that photo. On 1xLearning you can now find the tutorial for free here.
