My photographic horizons have expanded a great deal thanks to my friend Jessica Maleski. She pushes herself and pushes me. She teaches, shares resources, and just generally inspires. A few weeks ago, she pointed me towards a website on photo impressionism. While I've not yet been able to explore it in-depth, I have poked around a little, and was inspired to try creating an image "in the round," after learning about the technique in this post. My first attempt wasn't worth showing to anybody, but I'm rather happy with today's experiment, which I created with 16 images, various levels of opacity, soft light blending, and a few tweaks to the curves, vibrance, saturation, contrast, and brightness controls.
