Cloud computing using high speed wireless connections and networking are illustrated in this photograph of colored lights streaking up through a cloud cover at sunrise. The concepts shown by this dramatic cloudscape image include high speed networking, wireless communications technology, and computing across the cloud. There is no question that this image commands attention and a closer look. Any viewer is going to want to read the copy, and luckily the image has been crafted with ample copy space and the easy cropping of vertical, horizontal and square formats.
Creating Communications Technology Imagery
To create this communications technology image I relied upon three cloud images, a long exposure of colored lights in motion, and adjustment layers, layer masks, and filters in Photoshop. The image took me about four hours to create once I had the various elements collected and ready to go. The cloud images I photographed over Mexico in a commercial flight (I always try and sit next to the window). The lights I photographed during an evening in Bangkok. The Photoshop work i did in my Sausalito, CA studio. Truly an international image!
Speed, Motion And Energy
Speed, motion and energy are all expressed in this photo shot high above the clouds (at least for the most part). The great thing about an image like this is that it is ambiguous enough to portray many concepts when combined with the right headline, and at the same time is dynamic and compelling in its unusual perspective, sense of movement and intense colors. For example, this image can be about bandwidth, the Internet, or the world wide web. But it can just as easily be about global communication. Even better, no props, no styling, no make-up and no models! Mother Nature provided the amazing clouds and the streaks of light were courtesy of an urban landscape. I suppose I should thank Adobe as well, for without Photohop this image simply could not exist. Photoshop truly eliminates the barriers between imagination and execution. Photoshop is a visual adventure in itself setting the creative mind free to explore possibilities that simply do not exist except in the mind and new digital realities. This is a picture of streaming data and information and it is a picture of the future. This image can serve the needs of science or the needs of corporate IT departments.
