Montages seem perfect for Jazz illustrations - they visually recreate the blending and layering of the music, and the possibility of refining one's vision ofer the course of time, like other visual artists have always done, is very satisfying. This one, of drummers Michael Zerang and Hamid Drake at their annual solstice drum duet concert is my favorite so far. I tried to make in-camera double exposures on the scene, with some success, but this photoshop combination of two straight photos worked much better! thanks - MPoK
