Distorted Compositions

Here are some photos I took whilst I was out and about in London. I went into Photoshop and started cutting, overlaying and reversing different parts of the image to take the ordinary out and turn it into something more abstract.

I’m planning to use this technique in my documentary. Hopefully it will work just as well with a moving image.


I did a test version of this style using video to see how well it turns out. I actually quite like it. It’s quite confusing to look at, so I wouldn’t use a lot of these in my documentary. I’ve been looking at David Hockney for some inspiration on how to present visually interesting shots and this duplication of strips within a shot actually ties in nicely with the Hockney theme.
