POTD: Magpie Butterfly

Magpie Butterfly Bozeman, Montana 2012

Creating a composite image out of repetitions and manipulations of a single photograph is a fun challenge and very time consuming too. Between all the Photoshop intricacies and many iterations trying to figure out what I really wanted to do creatively, I spent 8-10 hours on this one yesterday. Good thing I (sometimes) have nothing better to do. I like this arrangement a lot; perhaps because it has a similar strong black and while graphic look as some of the patterns of ancient Mimbres pottery which I’ve always admired.]]>

  1. Love it – as much as I loved yesterday’s “poster”! I imagine the process takes on a life of it’s own. Merry Christmas!

  2. All of your composites over the last few days have been really beautiful. For some reason, I always like the magpie ones the best. I think it’s because of their black- and whitedness. A magpie butterfly is surely original, isn’t it?
