About the Author

About the Author

Stephen Burns (www.chromeallusion.com) has discovered the same passion for the digital medium as he has for photography as an art form. His background began as a photographer 28 years ago and, in time, progressed toward the digital medium. His influences include the great Abstractionists and the Surrealists, including Jackson Pollock, Wassily Kandinsky, Pablo Picasso, Franz Kline, Mark Rothko, Mark Tobey, and Lenore Fini, to name a few.

He has been a corporate instructor and lecturer in the application of digital art and design for the past 14 years. He has exhibited digital fine art internationally at galleries such as Durban Art Museum in South Africa, Citizens Gallery in Yokahama, Japan, and CECUT Museum Of Mexico.

Digital Involvement

Stephen teaches Digital Manipulation Workshops nationwide, but you can also join him online at www.xtrain.com/stephen. In addition, you will often see him as an instructor at SIGGRAPH (www.siggraph.org) in the Guerrilla Studio.

He is the author of several books published by Charles River Media. They include The Art of Poser & Photoshop, Advanced Photoshop CS3 Trickery & FX, Advanced Photoshop CS2 Trickery & FX, and Photoshop CS Trickery & FX. Each chapter is a step-by-step instruction on creating digital effects and artwork. He has also been a contributing author in the book Secrets of Award Winning Digital Artists (Wiley Press) and Photoshop CS Savvy (Sybex). Go to www.chromeallusion.com/books.htm for more information.

Stephen is the president of the San Diego Photoshop Users Group (www.sdphotoshopusers.com) of which there are currently 3,000 members strong and growing.

On the fine art level, Stephen has organized exhibitions with galleries and artists from South Africa, Europe, Mexico, and Switzerland. Please see his resume at www.chromeallusion.com/aboutartist.htm.
