alien skin flickr photo of the month

 

Big congratulations go out to Camilo Diez who kicks off 2014 on a high with the Flickr Photo of the Month award for January.

Double exposure photography is very much in vogue at the moment, thanks in no small part to the awesome work by Dylan and Sara Howell, whose tutorial on the subject has been looked at and emulated by photographers all around the world since it was posted back in April last year. However, this image takes the double exposure technique to a new level given the highly complementary composition and content of the two images which combine to create a unique effect. The fact that the angle of the subject’s face corresponds with that of the building under construction means it works really well visually. The final touch of post-processing in Exposure for the grainy black and white effect is subtle enough to not overpower the image; it just takes it to another level. The end result is both surreal and beautiful. A very powerful image indeed.

Camilo wins a copy of our Photo Bundle and an Alien Skin Software t-shirt. Well done, Camilo!

Finally, don’t forget to check out our post on the Photo of the Quarter Competition we just kicked off this month. There are some pretty serious prizes such as a 24-70mm f/2.8 lens or an 85mm f/1.4 up for grabs. Get your best images submitted to our Flickr Alien Skin Software group and you’ll be in with a shout.

Good luck to everyone and have a fantastic 2014!
