Skull ring in macro view plus a shot of a flower I planted in my yard with a helpful model all work together in this composition. It’s really one of my favorite things in the world when vastly separate images meld for enhanced artistic impact through some editing. I’ve gotten into montages lately, and I’m pleased with how this one turned out. Check out the source images below, also over at Flickr.
I think I’ve figured out why I’m so fascinated with the Hipstamatic Rock BW-11 film and John S. Lens. Remember those “ghost hunter” television shows where they would use some sort of special film or photography to document a spirit? I’ve always been fascinated by such, and that’s what it feels like I’m doing with this equipment, because there’s such a mysterious element to the results you get with Hipstamatic. It’s not just a filter — each snapshot is a unique reaction to the amount of light, movement, or other elements in the frame. Either that, or my cat Lily just might be on to something when she follows light on the ceiling… what we refer to as “Hunting Ceiling Ghosts.”
