I took a trip to Acadia in September and while walking on the rocks at Schoodic Point I saw shapes and colors that looked like cubist art. I started photographing close ups of the rock surfaces and every few feet it seemed like I was seeing another modern art masterpieces. I decided to try the experiment again and I went for a walk along the Sound and experienced the same thing -- so I captured a set of images. When I sat down to edit the photographs, I realized that certain images looked good as they were, but that other shapes and artistic designs could be created if I blended layers of images together. Sometimes I use the same image turned and manipulated different ways, other times I will blend different images together to create the final design. I will use different tools to create the final image including brush strokes, masks, luminosity layers and several of techniques to make the final image. The process has infinite possibilities, but at some point you have to say, "it just looks right" and then you know you have the final product.
