Exposure: I Like to Pretend I’m a Model

This is what made me really decide that I was going to learn Photoshop.

With creative thinking, you can really make a scene pop.

A bit about the staging:

An empty shower
A Maglight hanging from fishing wire held by a thumbtack into the ceiling
A tripod with a long exposure with your camera
Wardrobe found in the back of my closet

Put together with some awesome texture found on creative commons on flickr and you have a semi-professional looking scene that makes me look like a model.

If you are thinking about doing the 365 days project, don’t be afraid to be creative and think outside the box!

      It blew my mind that the lighting came out this well with just a small flashlight. It makes me wonder what I could do with real lights!

    Impressive to set that up and get the shot all by yourself!

      It required quite a bit of trial and error!

    Lighting, clothing, and your expression makes me think of survival horror movie…like if this was a movie poster, I’d be in.

    and before you ask, NO, not everything makes me think of survival horror movies. You managed a macabre coloring with light representing hope that is the essential mix in to make the story good.

    The story of the movie…that you’re going to make…about this picture…


    *glances at watch*

    is it done yet!? 😉

      I totally feel you – mainly because it looks like the Left for Dead cover. Was that even a video game back in 09? Was I somehow influenced without realizing it?
