Play

If you’ve been following my blog for a while now, you might remember this experiment. I was playing with light, shining objects in darkness and capturing them. I was mainly interested in the black and white ones, like this, but now I’m wondering if they work in colour too. In the black and white images, I added extra layers, but these are just as they were captured..I may work into them more..really you need to see these big, but this is as big as I seem to be able to fit them here.

Winter Weather Work

.

One dubious benefit about having a rubbish Summer weather wise is that I do more work!

I’ve been working on layered and digitally collaged images again over the past few months.

This is made almost entirely of photographs, some from my earlier work with shadows, some from photographs taken throughout the year.

I am pleased with how it looks somehow like a painting. Sadly I am terrible at painting, this is the closest I will ever get, painting with light and capture..

Bodied Blue

This is work continuing on my exploration of shadows and light. I am completely mesmerised by the effects that can be created with both.

I am playing here with light on a wall, shining through objects and glass to create different effects. I was really excited to see how this one appears in the shape of a womans body, almost like an x-ray, and I think that the other shadows that fall bring more feminine lines.

I’m trying to find ways to create unusual images without too much post editing – I only accentuated the blue hues and deepened the blacks a little here, everything else was simply with experimentation of the objects, light direction, and different exposures.

I’m thinking of trying the same thing whilst recording with my super 8 camera..

Fickle Feline.

You may remember that I began a little project with Jack a few weeks ago, here.  I’ve been trying to capture him again in some of his artistic poses but never quite got the right shots.

After being in a very bad mood all week (there was some scratching of face and eating of sofa), he strolled in to my work room today and decided it was time to continue our photoshoot.
