Were We Friends of Light? by TheQine Were We Friends of Light? by TheQine
[Were We Friends of Light?!]

First things first: This photo is NOT the result of a photoshop action. Photoshop was only used minimally to adjust levels and color balance. <--- sorry, just had to get it out of my system! ^^"

----------

Pieces in this series:




----------

This experimental shot is a combination of two analogue (with minor photoshoping) artifact inducing techniques:

1) Long exposure with multiple flash firings.

2) The "Parabolic Sprinkles" technique (similar to [link]) which is as follows :

Simple really! Load any old photo you have on a computer screen, and then take a shot of the screen with a close up lens, a jelled flash, and a polarizer filter on the lens. Smudge the screen a bit and experiment with different flash angles, and maybe even add a bit of cigarette smoke for some extra artifacts.

----------

Shot taken at the "Friends of Light" photography club's yearly Ramadan gathering in Riyadh. The freaky dude that appears to be walking sideways ten thousand times is Faisal AlDekhayyil. :D

----------

* Camera: Nikon D90 + 18-105mm kit lens + close up filter (+5) + orange flash jell + adjustable polarization filter.

I'm glad you included your comments on this.
This is incredible and deeply moving to me.

If I explained my feelings entirely, I would be carried away by psycho techs.

Glad I got to see this.
It is monumental to my emotions.

I'm later reminded of Gary Numan.
"Are Friends Electric"

The day I do try this I hope you are still at DA to see.
May be MONTHS...
I need a new camera and more time like you wouldn't believe.

You owe me nothing. :highfive:
The spiritually artistic depth of the people I am drawn to
gives me so much,
I lack for nothing. :)
