PhotoConstruction: Birmingham Car Park

Still not sure what to actually call these things. First came across the idea in an article in Practical Photography magazine about Michael Hallett. He calls them Photo-Constructions. The same magazine did a ‘how-to’ article on them the next month, and called them ‘Joiners’. They’re somwhere between panoramas and collages.

Note quite a panorama, because there’s no attempt to hide the individual photos. Not quite collage, because it should make (sort of) a single image of a scene.

I like the idea of playing with the perspective a bit more, though, so a couple of the signs in this are bigger than they were originally, and the rusted skips have been duplicated and zoomed in on in a separate shot above.

(Sorry, just re-read that, and it sounds quite pretentious. I pointed a camera at it, pressed the button a couple of times, then glued them together with The GIMP.)

Clicky piccy to see it bigger in Flickr – you really need to see it a bit bigger to get the idea.
