shadow photograph by John Foster Dyess
I will be describing the process of deconstructing a photograph that I took of chairs and shadows and reconstructing it as an abstract design.
chairs and shadows cropped
In photoshop I used the filter Threshold on the cropped photograph and then inverted
I began to add color with a brush in photoshop
more color added
I added a a section of a wicker chair and a section of a clock from anther photograph that I had taken.
I copied the image in the upper right hand corner,flipped it horizontally and vertically and place it in the lower left hand corner
More color added in photoshop
