So this weeks theme was chosen by me! And once again when I was put under pressure to think of a theme I went with the first thing I was looking at! So "Television" was what I chose, and this weeks image took a lot of effort.
When I was thinking about this theme the first concept was to produce an image of someone looking at the goggle box and being immersed in the program. But then I remembered I already did this as part of my 366 project last year. Here is the image in question.
So I abandoned that idea and started thinking of a new concept. And that's when I came up with the image below. And yes it is SooC, and I'll explain how.
I wanted to create an infinity image. I'd normally do this using a clever piece of wizardry in Photoshop but obviously that's against the rules :-/
So to get this image and the infinity effect, I took a picture of me in front of the TV, then put that image onto the TV screen. Then I took a picture of me in front of the TV screen showing a picture of me on the screen photographing the screen ! Then I put THAT image on the screen, then took a photo of me taking a photo of me taking a photo of me......(repeat until insanity)
The only problem was that I had to crank the screen brightness right down to stop it blowing the highlights. If I'd exposed properly for the unaltered screen brightness I'd be about 3 stops underexposed. This meant a shutter speed of 1.6 seconds so I had to keep still for each new shot, not to mention sticking to the same pose.
So that's that.......Oh THE HAT ! it's just a cheeky little dig because I'm the only Brit in our little group of nutters that are doing this project ;-) Please check out their work using the links below, because if you've been following this project since the beginning you'll know they produce some amazing stuff.
