Image creation process – original photo to final outcome – location – Cote De Granite Rose
Just messing about with an image taken in Cornwall. Printed as a CMYK, but only the cyan and magenta layers contain any information – so its just two layers.
The middle image is how it should look, in the bottom image the magenta layer has been printed upside down, they seem to still blend together and actually works better this way!
Some test images that were successful.
1) Interleaving/non-interleaving run through wordpad
2) Mainly just messing about with layers in photoshop after editing in Wordpad –
3) RAW file opened in text editor – then altered. Can be tricky to keep the image stable, so it can be opened again.
4) Opening the image (JPEG) with a text editor, and then altering the code, deleting, rearranging sections.
This strange place is where I used to go mountain biking almost ten years ago! The two lagoons and overflow area were part of the large mine infrastructure in the area. The weird colours and lack of vegetation are due to the high levels of arsenic that has been left in the ground.
The area has been given the nickname of ‘Mars’ for obvious reasons.
