Hi there -  I'm afraid this was long ago, and the deviantart stock account where I got the photo has now closed.

You can try the following sources, though - they have fabulous vintage photos:

this is really amazing work. i've been experimenting with digital collage lately and have wanted to try working with transparencies to sort of replicate the process traditionally. you've given me a lot to think about! thanks so much for the inspiration
Reply
:iconhogret:
hogret Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2011
That's how I got started on transparencies, too. Was looking for the "multiply" effect on real surfaces. I find that digital and traditional feed each other in a kind of a loop - a lot of my digital learning has been about trying to get an effect I can create with traditional, and vice versa.

Have fun - let me know how it goes
