I Can’t Have You

Last week, in the comments section of this here blog (sometimes known as THE ARTIST’S NOTEBOOK) I promised to publish a photo using a special effect known as the dream effect. It was all the rage in photo contests a few years back. This image is the culmination of a promise that dates back… like a week.

I put a little bit of a light touch on it. I want you to be aware that something isn’t quite right, but not immediately aware of what it is.

  1. Seriously. Like 4 years ago there must have been about 10 photos with this effect in the Iowa State Fair Photography Salon.

    Which means I be a ton of people copied it for the following year. I should post another picture where I go all in on this effect.

    Maybe I will…

    That would make it easier for people to tell what was going on though.
