This is final image I created from my experimental, double exposure portrait. This will be the first in a series of pieces that I will create. If you haven’t already check out my earlier blog posts describing my process you can find them here Part 1 | Part 2.
In this piece I originally intended to make the big leafy petal (to the left of the woman) much darker to make the woman the obvious focus of the piece, however in the end I decided I really liked the balance between light and dark areas of the image. If the big leafy petals were darker the whole image might feel too heavy.
Even though the flowers are made more prominent by maintaining their brighter value, the viewer’s eye is still drawn up towards the face. The darker outer petals act like arrows that point and show the viewer what to focus on.
