Day 17: Sky & Earth

Here are a few unexpected beauties I got from playing with my lens filter. Nothing here is photoshopped (except few color enhancements). All the exposure-effects you see here are straight from the camera, and the reflection of the glass filter that it captured.

These images are really like¬†exercises, ideas to get my brain juices working. But I do think I’ll keep nurturing this idea and eventually I do want to do a proper series on reflections and multiple exposure (through the camera only).


Day 06: Make a Mirror out of Anything

Posted twice today (since I missed yesterday). After fumbling around for a while trying to take a boring ol’ self portrait I discovered something magical in reflections! I’ve used this technique a couple times before, but this is the first time I’ve actually been able to (partly) capture my own face in it. The magic ingredients is a piece of glass (used my lens filter), the right lighting (sunlight from my window) and the right angle (pointed towards me and angled towards the light).

It’s definitely a really interesting technique, that if I either I had another person help me hold the lens or if I had 10 feet long arms I could have more flexibility with, but for now I’m happy with how it turned out. I used NO photo manipulation or double exposure for this. This is pretty much how I took it; straight from the camera (with minimal color changes done to it).

So. Phew. day 6 done. This has got to be some kind of record. (except forget that I’ve gotten to past day 120 with my other project…)

Whatever you look at will always be looking back at you
