Made this composition in my photomontage class for a created background assignment. We had to take an image of our choosing, duplicate it, flip it, then run it through the blending modes. I used a macro shot of the glass orb lamp bases I made last year at Hotel DeLuxe in Portland. (Great hotel, btw! They have yummy, yummy martinis at Gracie's bar.) You can see the original photo below. I loved the natural light reflecting and distorting through the orbs as well as the soft sand colors of the drapery on a cloudy day. And I spent an hour or so in my hotel room happily making other variations on this shot. The blended photomontage with difference mode is quite a thing to look at, isn't it! I love it!
