The following three images are examples of double exposures where I have combined two photos to create one image. They are all taken at various locations in England.
Marble Arch in the centre of London is a popular place for families to gather. Pigeons are always found everywhere in London. Combine a child with pigeons and you get some great action shots.
Lindisfarne Priory was our final stop when we walked the St. Cuthbert’s Way in the north-east of England. St. Cuthbert was responsible for spreading Christianity throughout the region in the 7th Century. St. Cuthbert lived for several years on Holy Island, before he retired to his hermitage on Inner Farne Island. In this image, a modern sculpture of St. Cuthbert is blended with the remains of the priory, which was built several centuries after his death.
Grasmere is a beautiful spot in the Lake District, at any time of the year. The daffodils are out in full bloom in the spring, making for a colourful collage.
I have recently revisited a photoshop technique that I have experimented with in the past. Without going too much into the technicalities, these images have been produced using the Stylize / Find Edges filter, which creates an outline which can then be filled in with textures and colours.
This past autumn I visited the Erin Fall Fair north of Toronto. They have many vintage tractors on display – all in working condition. I used two images from this collection to apply this technique. There is a tractor pull at the fair too, but I missed that.
The old Dodge truck is on display in the Distillery District near downtown Toronto. It is definitely not in working condition!
When I was involved in silk screen printing over 40 years ago, I always wanted to find ways to reproduce a photograph as a silk screen print (serigraph). There were many limitations in the process, which was very time consuming and required accurate registration of each colour application.
It is now much easier to create images that imitate serigraphs with the use of filters in Photoshop.
In this series, I have used images of stones (carved or free standing) and transformed them into three serigraph prints.
