[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I was playing with that bug, trying to make the picture a bit more interesting. I thought of a target in its head, or some sort of sensors the bug might have... so there was the vibes!

So, using PS, first I created balls of different sizes on different layers, but straight alined one upon another (in order to get the position I wanted), then, I made selection of each ball, I inverted the selection to delete the leftover in the bug's layer. One by one, duplicating the original bug. Finally I twisted each bug's ball, and I added a little shadow to each one to increase the outcome... et voilà!? was that clear enough !?!?

Ouch, it is easy to do, and pretty hard to explain...

Great work, and not so simple as it seems, it must have taken quite some time, but I really like the result. I don't see it as a target to aim at and shoot but more like sound waves coming from the bug itself.

  • Great

Nice photo. I like the idea that you have of making diferent size balls to create this excelent effect. Well done.

Essa ficou incrível, Bruno!
