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’!
