Double Exposure (Image Overlay) / Faces (EP12)
I’m already having nightmares about having to choose a handful of entries for the minimalism challenge. Many of you participated and contributed with fantastic images. Thank you all for your enthusiasm and creativity. It has been an incredible week, and – once more – you have taught me a lot.
A couple of blippers have suggested a challenge involving faces. Use double exposure or image overlay (in-camera or in Photoshop or similar software – you can find more information on this technique right here) to add something to the face that says something about that person or animal. Or to tell a story about him or her.
I chose one of our lovely neighbors for today’s blip. Marmosets live in the jungle, surrounded by trees and plants. The image I used for the overlay is a very common plant that grows around here. I used it (1) as an element of the marmoset’s natural habitat and (2) to express how precious these little animals are. The plant’s leaves seem to irradiate from this little creature like rays of light.
This is a fun technique. Try and experiment, and don’t give up. If you need suggestions or tips, please don’t hesitate to ask.
