On Oct. 1st, 2012 I left Charlotte, NC on a cross country journey to Portland, OR. I ended up in Champaign, IL and I love it! I'm a cismale, my preferred gender pronouns are HE/Him/His, but I'm totally down with whatever you want to call me. I'm looking forward to meeting more of my fellow bloggers, photographers, and artist to learn all I can about the creative life. I mostly post photos, videos, and blog entries about my experiences. Recently I have begun geeking out on glitch art and making my own animated gifs. I love feedback, and I feel that creativity flows much more freely in large numbers. If you would like to contact me directly for any reason just email me at email@example.com. Thank you and happy creating to you all!
Guest Directed Self Portrait #16
This is a damn fine prompt, Gazz.
It seems daunting because at first glance, it seems like you need a bunch of fancy lights… but you just need to find a way to paint that light on your subject (you, that is.)
All great cinematographers/photographers are improvisers at heart: christmas lights and flashlights, pieces of paper, nylon, tin foil… just about anything you can find. Play… always play.
Good god… this was *improvised*… but I am glad I did it this way. :)
This is so wonderful and I really appreciate the fancy diagram, but I do have one question: Why is it, that in this diagram, everything resembles what it is supposed to represent except for you? You look suspiciously like a chinese takeout box… You are much prettier than a chinese takeout box, and I feel you should be represented as such!
Seriously though, great fucking job! Now, I should probably get off my lazy ass and catch up on this project.
But first, just a few more episodes of Batman: The Animated Series
