derivative works


2dwelcome-6, originally uploaded by stallio.

my first flickr-based bending! and my first databent stuff since i stopped doing friday cat bending after leland passed away in january.

the original photo is by my old friend paul goyette.

i've been "bending" photoshop PSD files for some time now, and i'd always meant to do some more experimenting with layers, but never got around to it until now.

i took paul's original photograph and opened it in photoshop. using the magnetic lasso, i cut out the cardboard lady and pasted it onto a separate layer (actually, four copies on four separate layers, so that i could make multiple changes in the same editing session).

then i opened up copies of the PSD file in my audio software and introduced errors, trying not to edit the background layer, and only edit the layers with the cardboard woman on them.

the results are pretty much as i'd hoped they'd be.

view the whole set.

i don't know whether you've in vestigated, but flickr has groups, and when you join you can "submit" one of your photos to the group photostream.

maybe there's a databending (or similar) group.
