Photography 101: Double

A couple different takes on yesterday’s theme, Double.

I went with an experimental take on this challenge.

1st, you know that weird effect you get when you zoom in or out while taking a picture (it seems the actual name for this technique is Zoom Burst/ Blur)? In any case, I’d never tried it with miniatures. So I did. Granted this is my first attempt with this, so this photo has little meaning, but it gives me some interesting ideas to use in the future.

2nd, a re-editing of images from my senior project. I took the 2 images from the scene ‘Watch Your Step‘ and superimposed them to see if the story works better this way.

What weird techniques have you tried with your photos lately?

Photography 101: Treasure

I’ve taken this one a bit literally today.

I just had to though. I re-discovered this treasure chest in my box of miniatures last week and actually posted a picture of it to my instagram. I set it up a bit better for this shot thought, adding glitter and polymer clay pieces of gold.

Photography 101: The Natural World

I’m going to be honest. Today, I’m not feeling it…I’m just not. My motivation with art has it’s ups and downs (I’m sure it has to do with my moods in general)- hence, why I shy away from these daily challenges typically. But I am at least motivated to complete this Photography 101 thing. And so, while I can’t say I’m ‘proud’ of the following images, they’re postable, they’re okay, and I’ve decided that’s okay, for today that is…

I now present to you the very short story in which little blue butterfly goes on a search to learn more about his family.

Photography 101: Landmark

I struggled with this one a bit. I automatically thought of my Souvenirs series I made while in Italy, and then of the photo I made of Castillo de San Marcos in St. Augustine in the same manner. I’ve been wanting to do a similar one using my miniature David from Italy, but holding it in front of the replica in St. Augustine that stands in front of Ripley’s.

In any case, I didn’t have a chance to make it to historic St. Aug today, and yet I’ve been wanting to stick to the creating a new photo each day for this challenge. So, I decided to create tourist-y photos of my miniature David as if I was in St. Augustine looking at the real one. The bushes that surround the David statue here cover up his whole body from the street, leaving only the head to be seen, I’ve always thought it was kind of funny and thus had to make one of the photos of that view. I took and edited the images on my phone to give them a tourist, on the go, posted on instagram look.
