Having some fun with an old sweater, a lump of wood and a Flokati rug
A variation from the one posted on the Impressionist thread
ReD, I would love to see how you are doing these.....they are very cool. Maybe a brief description or a few screenshots. If you don't hav the time or interet in doing so, I understand. But please keep this series going.
OK something I was intending to do
Screenshot - shows jpeg & raw / raf
Bottom left shows the basic arrangement - Camera (X10) set manual with about 1 sec exp & waved over objects - I tend to stop movement at intervals during exp
Its all guesswork - after that its selecting an image then playing with it in various settings (I use Picassa) until something appeals - then its fine tune & more playing. Crops can occur anytime.
The first one on impressionist thread was a collage of about 6 images then given the treatment.
First & Third above are fairly straightforward - no collages just treatment. Gull added as collage in second.
Flokati Landscape 4 - (Seascape with sepia)
and when you say collage, are you just layering images or is there some cut and paste involved? I really like these ReD.
Yes just layering sometimes a crop beforehand - I don't have the tools for snipping outlines & cut + paste (or if I do I don't know how to use them)
the bird must have been cropped or shot against a featureless sky. Got it. Thanks for the tips. If I have some free time today, I may start shooting some rugs.....LOL.
yes it was cropped & also sky featureless but still added a haze in the collage - sometimes you can rescue after or pretreat the import to reduce effects
A lot of trial & error - always save the originals & work on copies
i would immediately blurt out "I NEED THESE!" in a home furnishing store. gorgeous! i would TOTALLY print these HUGE!
this for the beach house again Eliot ?-
More Fun - Flokati Ero
Edit not so happy with this as I was last night. I blame daylight viewing - I replace it with this
i need more houses! this will be for the villa in spain hehehehe
Could be onto something - here is a Penthouse in Spain
Reminds me of an island off Crete - hence the name
