    Hello Harold,

    this green version is really phantastic! It’s like coming from Phantasy-World.But I can not imagine how you made this. Do you have an information for me, or is it “top secret”?

    Hi Paul – There’s nothing top secret here (and a great deal of info about my techniques scattered in my blog). I call this a “digital photogram”. I start with a flatbed scan or a photo on a lightbox, in either case exposed for maximum transparency. I use a variety of digital darkroom techniques to process the image, including most significantly inversions of LAB color channels. I also use some of the Photoshop filters and the NIK Efex filters in some cases.

    Very best wishes, Harold
