Above shot is "Autoportrait with miror sculpture" .....
I have remove all the 250 pictures of my gallery in december 2007, i thought it was necessary to upload something new. But all the photographies are there : http://www.mhyrdin.fr and here : http://3d.mhyrdin.fr for CG pictures !
I'm a retired professor of infographic 2D & 3D methods at university and high school of fine arts in the french town BREST. For my job i must try many different softs, so i have used some since their very first versions like 3DSMax since 3ds (DOS mode), Photoshop since 1.0 (1990) and Illustrator since Illustrator 88 (1988) and so on ... I have had also to teach the basis of numeric photography.
My real name is Dominique Marques, i'm 63 years old, maried since 1974 with Suzanne, i encountered in 1969. We have two maried sons three grandsons and two pretty granddaugthers. After studies of natural sciences (that's the french terms used for animals, plants and geology) and computer science, I begin to work on 3D simulation in 1971. One of my hobbies is photography perhaps because my grandfather offered me my first camera for my eighth birthday !
With my pictures, i contribute regularly to exhibitions and books about biodiversity and i don't know how i spend my time but it's difficult to have time enough to come back on Renderosity.
