Most people think that blending multiple images into one image began with the invention of Photoshop which is of course not true. I blended this image and many others in the darkroom in 1977 inspired by Master Photographer.Jerry Uelsmann.

Photoshop does make it easier though. To make Row for Your Life, I had to create a mask, make multiple exposures on photographic paper, process and dry. Of course it would have taken hours to get the two negatives. Shooting the images, processing the negative film, making contact prints before you could even evaluate which images you wanted to blend.

This is an image of a fall sky in Pittsburgh blended with a Pelican from Merritt Island Florida. Took an hour or so after I had the concept,

In Flight

I think most people as children want to be able to fly. We dream about it and some actually jump out of airplanes and off cliffs with the appropriate equipment just to be able to simulate the experience of flight. As a photographer capturing birds in flight has been a goal for decades and I have captured a few. However many times the sky is boring behind the bird so this time I just replaced the sky with one I like better.

In the 1970’s I taught photography at the Ivy School of Professional Art in Pittsburgh and still I am in touch with some of my former students today thank to Facebook. Occasionally I would take a shot or two in the studio while they experimented with lighting. This is a multiple exposure done during one of those sessions. You can purchase a print of this image or see others at my commercial gallery.
