Here is my poor, massacred broccoli.
And my setup before half a gallon of syrup was poured onto it.
And, a cool, accidental photograph.
And, finally, the finished product.
The process of creating the finished product felt much more like I was "making" a photograph, a concept I am slowly learning in the darkroom this term (although the process is 100% different in Photoshop than in the darkroom). The foreground was copied and pasted onto a gradient background, which I then had to blur heavily to make it look like it wasn't copied and pasted. I then had to pick a consistent tone for the entire photo to make the gradient background look natural, and to give the whole photo the impression that it was taken at sunset (Impression: Sunset- ART JOKE). This project is starting to feel a lot less like photography and more like a digital and physical construction project.
