work in progress eh?
Well, I think the is quite interesting. The dress and shoes show innocence, but the corset adds a hard sexy edge. And the mask is menacing. All together it is a cool affect when you put them all together. Where is she jumping too/from???
it's all photoshop... i used the selection tool with a feather of 250 pixels, selected the entire image, and then inverted the selection... then i filled it with black and duplicated the layer a couple of times to get the density that i wanted.
yeah, it does look a bit like a holga shot [ironic to use a $3000 camera to get effects i can get with a $20 one]
i think the effect is too clean for me... i want something a bit more gritty around the edges, i just need to figure out what exactly to use...
i want a holga, those things look like so much damn fun... when cash isn't so tight i'm definetly going to spring for one, they're only like what? $20?
i shoot with a pentax 67II medium format slr [link] and a canon t-90 35mm slr. the pentax is a beast of a camera, but the amount of detail you get with a 6x7 image is astounding. not very good for hand-held shots, though, you pretty much have to keep it on a tripod if you're shooting anything under 1/500th of a sec.
