Digital Photographic Montage – composed of 3 basic photographs and multiple layers , edited in CS5
Camera ( main subject ) Canon D5
Lens – EF 75-300 IS USM
Exposure – 1/2000 at f/16 ISO 1600
The objective of the editing process was to create the illusion of the flock flying through the bars. I used several different layers of bird images to create the effect , with adjustments to blending modes and opacity.
Some birds are solid , clearly on this side of the bars, some are more transparent as they fly through the bars , and finally there are those already on the other side and the bars partially block them out.
