Skull Hanging From Cloud by String

Skull hanging from a cloud by string. Surreal art photograph by Joseph Westrupp.

Title: Connected. Quite a descriptive title, but it still has aesthetic appeal to me. As with all artwork names, I think it’s important to take into account the artwork itself, and the effect on perception the words of the title exert. They’ll always influence the experience to some degree, which is why I think artwork names are important.

This image is made up of quite a few photos, and getting the tonal balance of the individual elements right was tricky. There’s no right or wrong way with art, but as a work is created, you go on a journey of possibilities. Each choice you make is an experiment to see what meshes best with your aesthetic taste.

Initially I thought I’d like this best with far more contrast than it has, but I was surprised to find I liked the softer overall gray look you see.
