This was a white apartment block on the beach at Santa Monica, California. I wanted it to reflect the colourful characters that frequent that strip so decided to give it a bit of ‘bling’ or the X-factor.
This was a normal colour transparency image of a white building with blue trimmings. I scanned the image then, using the Curves control in Photoshop, I pushed the tonal range until it was almost solarised. This simulates the effect that happens when colour transparency film is processed in colour negative chemicals, known as cross-processing.
