On Sunday morning I attended a conscious movement event in Sarasota, FL hosted by Dance SRQ/Conscious Movement Sarasota. While there, I took just a few photos of this hour and a half free-form movement class without flash, not wanting to disturb the environment. Later at home, I brought the photos into Photoshop and layered two or more of them together to create more depth. I played with the filters and opacity of the layers until I came up with a number photo collages I liked.
The collage above was created by tweaking the 2 photos below after they were layered together.

Here are some more I created with those photos...
I like the shadows created in the top section, below. They come from yet another photo.
The photo below was added to create the collage above
more variations . . . yes, I am obsessive!
My favorite I think . . . click on it for a larger view.
The dancing was . . . . "authentic" in the words of my Nia dance teacher Kathy, and I would agree. It is wonderful for me to combine my love of dance and movement with my new love of photography and being creative with it. I just wanted to share this! Have a creative and happy day. : ^ ) lenna
