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..

I’m just experimenting here…so I’ve no idea how it looks to you, and forgive me if I’m making lots of schoolboy/girl errors..!

I took some photographs at night, then layered and manipulated the images..this is an adaptation of the second one in the post below.

I’m pleased with how the stairs and window seemed to fit, and I like how the left hand side is a little like an opening book from behind…perhaps the story is escaping..?
