This is a revised, updated and expanded version from the first dataset. This version contains additional photographs, Haiku about the crow, proverbs and interesting facts. The research information came from various books on symbols, mythology, and Haiku. The photographs were made with an artificial intelligence generator and enhanced with photoshop after I planned the concept for the photograph. The idea was to take a symbolic or mythological fact attributed to the common crow and create an interesting photograph about the crow.


Steps to reproduce

I arrived at my data from: A Dictionary of Symbols by Jean Chevalier & Alain Gheerbrant andThe Complete Dictionary of Symbols by Jack Tressider. The proverbs were obtained from several dictionaries of proverbs and the Haiku from several sources of Haiku poems. The methods was to use an artificial intelligence generator to create a fine art photograph based upon my concept that I wanted to illustrate. The resulting photograph was enhanced with photoshop in order to improve such things as brightness & contrast, saturation, focus, highlights, shadows, middle tones etc.. Then, I converted a jpg image to a TIF digital image. Each image had to be converted to pdf format and combined in pdf software to create the e.book.
