Skull on Bokeh Background

Skull on bokeh background, art photograph by Joseph Westrupp.

Title: Levity

This actually emerged from Godseye. After completing that image, I thought enlarging the area around the skull might work.

It’s actually not simply a direct enlargement, doing that didn’t work. But I played around with it till I got the blurred background looking more interesting. I also added texture to the skull, which somehow looked too shiny and boring as it was.

Further in this chain, and evolving directly from this image, is Classical Levity (same basic composition, but very different colors and textures).
