Finally, some real portraiture. And by real portraiture I mean my usual unusual photos. Today I bring you reflections of mirrors and waters. But really, this is actually part of a more serious project….movie making!
These are a few stills from a little footage I took. Keep on the lookout, i’m about to launch the beginning of a very interesting filming career that will hopefully last longer than my summer vacation ;).
Truth: I’m not putting as much effort into the 365 as when I started. There’s a lot more potential in me that I’m just not using. Well that’s ok for now, but hopefully my ambition will grow again. Lets not make the possibility of failure and excuse for not trying.
I see myself watching you watch me…
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…)
