K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

21 Mar


Ok, this is it; the first day of a new feature on Diary of an Internet Nobody, in association with my good friend, K’lee at Obzervashunal.

From now on, Mondays are Cosmic Photo Challenge day!

Each week, K’lee and I will be posting an artistic photographic creation which falls outside the scope of mere “photography” and strays into the more ephemeral sphere of “art”, (however you choose to define that elusive term) using whatever effects, techniques or general mucking about that floats our collective boat.

We will each post on our blogs with links supplied, to enable you to check out both offerings each time.

We would also love you all to get involved in making this an interactive feature.
All you need to do is add a post to your blog, entitled “K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge”, post your artistic creation and then execute a pingback, either back here, or to Obzervashunal, so all our lovely readers can come and see your work.
You can even use the bespoke badge at the top of this post if you so wish.

I decided to go with a collage for my first attempt, using elements of these images…


…a combination of straight photos, light painting experiments and a composite picture, which resulted in this, today’s Cosmic Photo:

So, let’s get this feature started: over to you, my wonderfully creative friends…

    Most impressive layering skills and the result is beautiful! I wonder how you select, choose your photos, is it intentional or random selection.

      Thank you.
      I took the night time picture of the tree on Friday and also made the light painting shots, specifically with this feature in mind.
      The two bird photos are old favourites of mine, as is the one of the head sculpture and I picked them because I wanted something to fill the bottom corners of the image and they seemed to fit nicely, especially as they both contain undergrowth, which fitted well “under” the tree.
      I’m a bit of a sucker for creepy eyes and, since this was our inaugural post, I thought I should include an element from one of my trademark peculiar avatars.

      All done on my trusty smartphone.

      And the rest, as they say, is photography.

      Hope that answers your question. ;~}

        Absolutely and thoroughly, I appreciate your openness about your work process. You see I’m not a professional photographer, started to use camera a bit over a year ago and posting it slowly on my other site. I love K’lees work and that’s how I got introduced to your work which I do like and decided to follow you as well.
        Congratulations on this great idea what you both came up with, and once again thanks for answering my question. ~ Eva

        I’m not even a “not a professional photographer”, I’m a bloke with a smartphone and a blog, and I’m not afraid to use it, hahaha.
        Please join in, we’d love to have you on board.

    Nice collage work with some cool images, Dale! You’ve really learned how to make your (phone) camera work for you.
