Being a daddy, a husband, a photographer, and a freelance 3D/2D animator keeps me quite busy these days. It also keeps my mind racing at 100mph with my thoughts tangled and twisted. I’m not saying having an overactive brain is necessarily a bad thing. I’m just saying it’s the way I feel some days. So my goal with this image was a capture something that represented my crazy, every which way, here and there mind.
This is about a dozen shots of a piece of picture hanging wire rotated this way and that on my copy stand. I combined the images into a single Photoshop file and created a Smart Object. I changed the stack mode to “Mean”, duplicated the object and changed that stack mode to “Variance”, and then set the layer blending mode to “Pin Light”. Very simple, but I believe, very effective in creating the look I wanted.
