I did that with a pumpkin once a long time ago. A portrait of my girlfriend at the time. I know what you’re talking about when you say less is more. It took a couple of tries with Photoshop until I got something I could work with. Also with a pumpkin the structure of the negative has to be connected, obviously, because the disconnected pieces can’t hang in thin air. It came out OK. The curved surface gave me trouble when I transferred the image. LOL it was slightly warped. Haha. Maybe I’ll try that again this year with my wife.
