Canyon..Sabattier Effect

I bought a great old book on "creative darkroom" techniques by Eastman Kodak(not the digital kind), and found out about The Sabattier Effect or solarizaton. Both a positive and negative image are produced on the same film. I loved the look of it so did some reading up on digital ways of doing this. The canyon photo seemed like a good candidate and I used the V curve method. It was very interesting, the way many physical darkroom techniques are carried over into photoshop. Of course - duh! However, I was not familiar with darkroom techniques.

Man Ray..

I agree - way ahead. I read a little bit about him last night and was surprised to see he was born in 1890. His work is so contemporary. a true genius.

A very unique approach, Margaret. It's amazing (but shouldn't be, I guess) how some traditional techniques (a) still apply today and (b) with the right skills one can digitally mimic them.

Well done.

An expecially nice job on the brush strokes, Cathy.

Did you by chance use one of the Impasto texture files from a Wow book?

Regardless, this looks very painted. Well done.

Thanks Danny. I used PS 7 One Click pattens for the texture. There ane some natural media textures (thick paint on canvas etc.) and after I load them I use the differnt blending modes to get the result that I want. I used Painter to paint the picture, and then collaged it onto a background that I created. The texture is the final touch.
