Altered Horizons 40

Altered Horizons 40 Robin Botie of Ithaca, New York, photoshops a fabricated landscape, a bodyscape, from a human face.

Making a landscape from a human face. I thought I’d try this, at least once. So I took a negative image of an old classmate and pasted it onto a mackerel sky. My effort was going well enough until I tried to add scattering, the fine white haze that one sees at the horizon. That lightening up of the sky at the farthest point one can see, just before it disappears beyond the nearer more solid landform, has always drawn my focus. But I guess I should have highlighted it more subtly. My photography instructor, who knows all about capturing light and making light work, wasn’t buying it.

    Hi Robin,
    Well, I love it. You are playful, trying different transformations. I see not a landscape, but at glowing face, becoming part of the sky.
    Love, Lucy

      So glad you like my face-scape, Lucy. Because I think I may try to do more with faces and bodies, humans and others. Cheers for being outthere, Lucy.
