If you read yesterday's post, Changing the Background, you'll know that I'm playing with a Photoshop technique called "multiply." I've continued to play. I paired the above sunset photo with several of my other photos and got some pretty interesting images. The results aren't just from the "multiply" button - I pulled in some other techniques as well, but the one thing they have in common is that I used the sunset photo in all of them.
I took this photograph on the golf course behind our home. The water was perfectly still.
I used the sky part of the sunset to produce this image. I also made a second copy of the sky and flipped it upside down to use for the reflection of the clouds in the water. I tell you, you can fake almost anything!
A shot of my favorite pier at our local beach.
Again I used just the sunset sky to color this image.
A dock I photographed on one of my walks.
This time I made use of the water as well as the sky. Looks like a storm is brewing!
This is my paternal grandmother, Rosilia, at the age of 15. I'm working on a composite that uses her image, so I had already "isolated" it from the background. She'll be in a cemetery and I plan to call it "Grandmother's Ghost." Since that project is still in progress, I decided to give her some time-off and take her for a visit to the beach.
