Orton Technique, December 12

Just adding on the top here the link to the Nature Photographers site with the easy instructions

Don't know if you've come across it but I keep seeing it on bp lately so I googled it and have been looking at all sorts of marvellous shots. So far this is the only site I have come across which tells you how to do it.Though the example they use is not inspiring

This gallery is more inspiring

So I am already putting this up as my challenge for December shall we say the 12th. This should give us gals a wee bit of time to attempt to master it.

Basically it used to be when they put two slides together - one out of focus and one in focus. What do you reckon Val are you up for it. I suppose it obviously must mean using a tripod to get the images to match. Then a simple thing in PS would just be to have the two pics up on the screen and just use the arrow to drag one across in front of the other so you have two layers.

Best of luck


PS I have far more pressing things to do but this last week I keep seeing Orton Technique everywhere and just had to see what it was. I had assumed it was just a filter. But not so.

I am certain of nothing but the Heart's affections and the truth of the Imagination- John Keats

I still think this is fun and worthy of more play!
