This image spent a long time in the process of creation, and less of that time was in the camera and Photoshop work than in the imagining and re-imagining of the concept. I think it’s finished now – or rather I fear I may overwork it if I add any more. This is a montage of four photographs that I created on different days and in several locations. I did the montage work in Photoshop CS6 with many masked layers and effects from Topaz Simplify and Adjust, and Alien Skin Snap Art (custom settings in watercolor and pencil sketch); textures from Leslie Nicole’s French Kiss Textures (Brest, Northern Skies from the Artiste collection); and my own hand-painted and sketched additions. (Four different photos, Olympus E-5 & E-510 with Zuiko 70-300mm zoom, various exposures and natural lighting scenarios)
