Inside of Adobe Photoshop, using stock photos from unsplash.com, I produced this double exposure representing unity.
The grey holdings hands shows unity and togetherness within people. While, the autumn leaves add a layer of detail and ties into the theme of unity and love between people.
What do you think of this piece? Does it inspire unity? Or, something else? Tell me on Twitter.
The process I used to create this piece is overall very similar to the one I used for the ‘Swinging Kid’ piece I completed a few weeks ago. You can read more about this piece here.
However, the general process to create a piece like this is use the channels in Photoshop to cut out the original image and then use a layer mask to add in the background image.
Following this add a desaturated version of the original image onto of the others to add the detail in. Adjust the opacity to your liking and then finish by adding in a background colour.
Overall, I like this piece and it shares the message I intended it for but I could have cleaned up the piece a bit more. Tell me what you think below or on Twitter.
