Weekly Photo Challenge – Layered – Leven Bus Station

Leven Bus Station - Hockneyed

As part of this weeks ‘homework’ for the photography course I’m doing, we were told to go out and choose a subject, take between 20 and forty photos of that subject in succession, and then once we our back in class, we are to put them into Photoshop as multiple layers, to create a multi ‘layered’‘ image in the form of a David Hockney photograph.

Alas, I couldn’t wait that long, so I used that same technique, but used Gimp instead as my editing software, and came up with these three images. The second photo was actually my first attempt – I ended up with lots of gaps, and lots of duplicates with this one! Lol!

The final photo was the same as the original, but I changed some of the layer merge modes to ‘multiply’, ‘difference’ or ‘value’, which created some of the odd colours you see in it. Personally, I think it looks a bit of a mess, but my kids thought it looked ‘cool’!

  1. I think you really nailed it with that first shot of the bus station. From memory, Hockney usually managed to get himself (or his foot maybe?) in the shot somewhere. Or am I thinking of Hitchcock? 🙂

    1. Thanks Su 🙂 I’m not sure about Hockney including a bit of his anatomy in his work, maybe I should try that too! As to people appearing in their various things, I know that Stephen King always appears in any of the film adaptions of his books, and I’m sure you’re right about Hitchcock too, although he may have some difficulty appearing in any present films of his!! 🙂

  2. Looks like you had a lot of fun with this assignment! Sometimes process is more important than product… I love it when challenges get a bit “messy!” These are all very cool!! I agree with the kids.
