essay, part 10:

But sometimes I cheat on my beloved benefactor. I combine, recombine and distort images. Iím sure some layerers are very careful about their process, but mine is as hectic as shooting is. I throw layers on, try different blendings, and see what happens. Throw a boy into a semi-symmetrical field of wildflowers, and he becomes more haunting... a hauntingness that, by the way, was there all along. But I know the terrible price of this game...




original notes:

symmetry is the death of composition. I flipped an image and then blended it with itself on overlay. then I superimposed another photo of a child.

well said. I learned the power of symmetry even as I disobeyed the letter of the law.

Had to give this a 1 for DNMC. Normally I would -3 but since in this case, the theme was a hard and fast rule totally within the control of the photographer, I'm forced to be a little more harsh.

Nice image with alot of emotion, but I'm not sure if I see the artificial symmetry component.
