TAOP: Assignment 5 ? Images ? Part 6: If you wake up alive that old blanket of sorrow could be feathers and down…
December 1, 2012
These are two shots following on from the sleep/death image. This would have been one shot, but wind meant I couldn’t get the feather where I wanted it, so I decided to do it as two presented on a single page. I’ve aimed for a “dreamy’ look by shooting toward the sun, with it just out-of-frame. THe flash filled in from the front.
I reduced contrast and black levels in Lightroom as I feel this enhances the dreamy/other-worldy sense to the images. The lens flare also adds to this sense too – and is something I used for a shot as second photographer at friends’ wedding recently.
