These images were all recreated from images I pulled from situations I had photographed over the past few months. It was simply an experiment. I like the soft, dreamy feeling the technique imparts to each scene. Now that I know what the results are like I may intentionally photograph some future scenes with this technique specifically in mind.
|Foggy morning with the Brooklyn Bridge. One layer in focus is placed over one out of focus layer of a slightly different camera position.|
|Florida sunrise. One focused layer placed over the same image with Gaussian blur. A separate out of focus layer of clouds place over everything to add the mist.|
|Spring blossoms, New York. A blurred layer placed over a focused layer of the trees, and a photo of the gull placed beneath both.|
|Spring in the forest at Walden Pond. Motion blur in a vertical position caused the streaks. This layer was placed over a focused layer of the forest.|
