This is a thing I made.
I created all the buckyball formations and photographed them myself. I also improved my Photoshop skills by attempting to separate them from the background/shadows. I used the magic wand, easy select, magnetic laso, circular selection tool, among other things. I also changed the images to black and white, and changed the exposure and gamma correction. Last of all, I created the composition. I printed a couple of these for TEDxUW tomorrow.
