Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Independence (Basic Editing III*)
Collection: Portfolio
Camera: Canon EOS-10D
Lens: Canon EF 28-135mm F/3.5-5.6 IS USM
Location: home
Date: Jul 15, 2005
Aperture: 16
ISO: 100
Shutter: 6 sec strobes
Galleries: Emotive
Date Uploaded: Jul 15, 2005

This is nothing but a simple double exposure. You strobe your face and while the shutter remains open you grab this kid's battery operated led light toy, place it on your nose and put on the unit. Of course, after the strobes go off, you are in darkness until the shutter closes.

Congratulations on another very good finish. You sure have a way with these "trick" photos, they are so interesting to look at. I can never figure out how you did them until I read the explanation, and then it's like, "Duh!"

Anyway. I love looking at your pictures.

Nicely done, Dan. I gotta stop showing your photos to my wife. Her constant, "He's so creative" doesn't help my confidence level. ;-)

Nice. A grownup interpretation of independence; flags may wave and golden eagles may soar, but the one real and lasting font of independence is from within ... self knowledge. This is a great visualisation of this eternal truth. 10

Just brilliant - great concept (as always), beautifully executed!

This is very cool GF. The attention is naturally moving to your right eye.

Your head is even so slightly turned towards your right, which makes this a little hard to make a completely symetric crop, if the camera was moved just slightly to the right (your left), your posture would be right on spot, and I believe it might have an even stronger impact that way... But you might have wanted it just like this.

Anyhow.. This goes to my favs. 10 :)

Excellent. I hate short comments when I'm watching my photos, but that's all I have to say. Better than "crap" though right? Hehe.

Awesome, can't wait to see how you did this.

I really like this technique. Probably too deep a title, many may not get it. Very nice work you did here.

Glad to see somebody else around here has a spiritual take on the challenges! I only wish you had darkened the background to make it all the way black.

Continuing to push the boundaries of creativity. I learn something every time I look at one of your photos.

It wil be interesting to see how you got this effect in basic editing or before that, good luck

Thought provoking image, can we really do this? I mean separation of mind and body...wonder if you did this behind a glass, reflection, looking forward to next monday GF?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/17/2005 08:52:50 AM
this is a great idea, but wouldn't it have been easier to set that over the third eye?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/17/2005 07:17:17 AM
Okay so how did you do that in basic editing. Very cool.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/17/2005 12:35:35 AM
is this graphicfunk?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/17/2005 12:24:56 AM
WOW! This is amazing. The shadow on the body and the dark background really makes the figure pop. And you were able to accomplish this with basic editing?? Man, that is some piece of work!! How in the heck did you do that?

That you Daniel? Remarkable image. Can't wait to see how it was made.
