I enjoyed the newsletter, thank you. My interest was drawn to the section on Buzz filters and the simplifier you recently used. I do like the subtle dream like look, it reminds me of the Orton effect. I believe that this was developed in the 80’s by taking two slide images, one correctly exposed and the other slightly over exposed and out of focus. These two images were then combined and printed.
Done well the print had a very subtle dream like quality with a warm glow on the highlights. I do quite like a surreal image and the opportunity to experiment. Of course, this can now be done in photoshop using layers and filters and blending modes.
