Kaleidoskope - Japan Series

A series of kaleidoskopic images. These with a focus on Japan images.

I've been playing around with Photoshop, trying to find ways to create those reflecting, kaleidoskopic images without manually resizing and rotating images. This was eventually achieved by using embedded images - there is an origin file, one that is cropped to a triangle, one that reflects the first triangle and the final image, which combines the triangles in a hexagon. Voilá, now I only needed to swap the origin image and the final file would update. This enabled me to play around with many different source images. In a second step, I combined two images with different scales and even added some transparency.

This is the "Japan" series.

It started with Japan I, a reflection of a walk from "Fushimi Inari-taisha shrine outside Kyoto, Japan." Now, I haven't been there, but putting this pathway with the gates in the prisma made for a really cool effect. More to come - I wanna focus more on nature here instead of the megacity vibe that is present in the Cyber series.
