LEARN TO WORK WITH YOUR BACKGROUND!
Believe it or not....sometimes I actually do little computer work with an image after I photograph it! And this is an example here.
I composed the above image with one view in mind: making a still life image around an 12" x 18" image I had done earlier.
If you would go back to my posting of Problems of Having too Little - on March 24, you would recognize the background image.
All that I did with the foreground part of the above image was just use colors in the foreground which worked well with the background and I used a different green glass to offset the green bottle in the background.
So to sum it all up - this whole new image was to incorporate an older photograph into a newer image.
Challenge for today:
Think, think of your older images. What could you reuse????
