Tulipomania!

Tulips and double exposures and what do you get?

My previous post was about using Photoshop for sandwiching images. I had so much fun with an old Olympus that took double exposures!

That was my favorite function. Is it one your camera offers??

Bonfire in the landscape?

Why not.

Nothing like a bonfire at the ocean.

Here’s a sandwiching of the painting in my previous post and a photo of a friend gesturing with arms up at a bonfire.

“Sandwiching” is my term for “layering.”

Here’s how I did it using Adobe Photoshop:

1. Reduce the size of both images from large files to 380 pixels wide.
2. Put one image on top of the other and change the opacity of one image to 40%.
3. To reduce loading time I chose “save for web.”

My example is basic sandwiching. This could be the beginning of multiple multiple layers.

While working on this landscape painting I applied a bit of the water spray on the canvas. You’ll see a more subtle affect here of the paint dripping.

I’ll sandwich it with a photograph in my next posting.

This water spritzing is fun!
