I recently reset my computer’s desktop background to a default image from my computer. I was a black and white negative of a leaf.
It is a neat affect because it causes you to look at something potentially very familiar a little differently. I have been meaning to try this photographic affect and here are a couple of my first attempts.
The pictures are of the tops of ornamental grass; maybe a seed pod that has opened up. They look like half hearts.
I actually just reset it again. This computer has some nice choices.
It is that Seurat painting… A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte. I don’t think I am finished with negatives yet but I might have to play around with some Pointillism too! Maybe using this technique I saw on Pinterest: eraser prints. It might be a fun weekend activity with kids!
