Unfortunately my time on Kauai was short-lived. With such a full schedule I had just enough time to walk to the beach and take this picture and then it was back to work. But I can see why they call it the Garden Isle. It's basically the best most beautiful parts of Maui amplified by ten. Everything is so lush and green and colorful. They say that only about 20% of the island is visible by car so a helicopter tour sometime in the future is a must! #jacobgrantphotography #portraits #pictures #photog #kauai #destinationweddingphotographer #canoncamera #love #beautiful #timeless #classic #hawaii #mauiphotographer #ocean #beach #oceanview #awesome #kauaibeachresort #feelingblessed #landscapephotography #driftwood #driftwoodart

Before and after on the cover to my novel The Stormcaller.
The cover to my novel The Stormcaller. Originally published in 2007, the first edition had a simple hand drawn cover that was never quite acceptable in my opinion. Years later after I'd perfected my skills in Photoshop, I did a photoshoot with a friend and recreated the cover to be much more colorful, dramatic, exciting, and photo real. I did a lot of photo manipulation on the model including a head swap and enhancements to the dress as well as new textures, shading, a crown and a cape. The scene around her was created with hundreds of layers of rain, light, debris, clouds, lightning and more. Check my page for before and after! The Stormcaller is an epic medieval fantasy about a power-hungry necromancer trying to resurrect the unholy spirit of the Dragon. At his side is a legendary swordsman name Legion whose unique immunity to magic has enabled him to single-handedly crippled the kingdom of Freeport from defending itself against the necromancer's plot. When Andrea, a young slave who has magical powers beyond human comprehension, finds her way to Freeport the tides of war begin to change. But is her faith in her abilities strong enough to stop even Legion? With surprising twists and imaginative medieval battles The Stormcaller is an illustrated tale of the redemption from the pits of the darkest kind of evil.
