In The Key of David Hockney

This post is fully inspired in the style of David Hockney. Click here to view his works, they are mind blowing, trust me. Ok here's a quick intro on the "David Hockney" style. Basically, it is taking a bunch of pictures and stitching them together to form a complete image. For example:

I noticed that David Hockney aligns most of the pieces in perfect orientation such as this below:

I took his technique and improvised it a little further by orientating the shots at different angles and than only stitching them together.

David Hockney sometimes stitches shots at different exposure and time to create a greater effect in his overall pictures like here:
I metered each shot differently in the coffee shop to come out with different exposures for each shot

Well it is always fun to look at other photographers works and to be inspired by them. It is a great learning process!
