Things Fall Apart, a Continuing Series

Post by Matt Quinn » Wed Feb 07, 2018 1:15 am

I didn't realize I was serializing on this topic until someone pointed it out. So, I am formally organizing it from here on out.

Two from today.

I agree on #2, Frank. I have to learn that less can be more. Matt

I like the sinking and slowly fading away on number one, the crop works well... other crops might be good too, something I am slowly starting to learn is that a crop seems always more interesting than the full thing (another distinction between one and two).

Thanks, Piet. I will go out and see whether this fellow lights the car at night. Really odd. Matt

A fascinating thread. I'm always drawn to broken and falling-down things (one reason I've poured everything I had into the crazy house project).

I like both images but the shed, as Frank noted, is a bit too far for my taste. Here's an idea I use in such cases: layer the heavily processed image with the desaturated original, and fool with the opacities and blending modes. Sometimes this can make something very interesting.

Will revisit the shed, Minnie and Frank, and see what results. Thanks for the comments. Matt
