    Okay...well...story is...always see good old Terri post here and I had to give it a try, so shes my inspiration this time.

    Simply...I did something very odd in my photography lesson a while ago, and I would like to share the exerperience with you guys.

    Firstly, I developed this image in the darkroom from my negative.

    [​IMG]

    Not great I know...but I then scanned the picture, and I edited in photoshop.

    I cut out the seegull, and doubled it up many times around the image, and then adding a blueish tint to the entire picture.
    I also made the birds bigger and smaller, adding more/less contrast to make them appear at different distances..

    [​IMG]

    Finally, the part that is soo sexy :D I inverted the image, so its...in its own sense, a negative, and then I printed it on normal white paper.

    Placing this ontop of photographic paper in the darkroom, I managed to make a picture in the darkroom of the photoshoped image, and this, my beautiful photo forum people, is the result.

    [​IMG]

    I thank you all for reading, and I prey for comments.

    I bid you adue...

    I'm proud to be your inspiration, Arty.... :thumbup:

    I must admire your end result here. Totally surreal, so you know I'm all over that. ;) So - this final image is on darkroom paper...? I would love to have watched your process here! I'll forgive the PS since you ended up back in the darkroom and the results are so cool. :mrgreen:

    Great work, very imaginative. :D

    That is seriously freaky. It's got some eerie and unnerving effect going on there. :shock: :crazy:
