I am the little prince, and i’m glad you made it here just in time. Because, you see, today i leave my own asteroid and embark on an epic journey through space. I want to find out about the other worlds, the nearby planets where grownups live. It seems logical to start from the solar system they call Rome, as it’s one of the oldest known to man, or so i am told.
Those who know my photography know i normally make no use of Photoshop beyond adjusting contrast and tewaking levels. But sometimes it is worth a dabble into some of the odder effects it offers. In this case the key ingredient of these images is a filter which introduces so-called “polar coordinate distortion”. All this does is turn a square photo into a circular one. Several tutorials exist online that explain this technique.
As always, feedback and comments are appreciated.
