Yes, I was listening to the Beatles and no, I was not dropping acid while creating these photos. I didn’t feel either of the original versions of these photos were great or even good enough to display. In fact, both were clunkers. One wasn’t in focus and the other was just boring.
Sometimes I use clunkers to play in Photoshop to learn the capabilities of filters and other features. I don’t know how many different filters I used on these photos, but it was several.
Next time you’re “weeding out” your photo library, don’t automatically throw out your clunkers. You might be able to create a different style of art photo, use them as a texture or “sandwich” them in Photoshop to create a stunning piece of artwork.
