Our Daily Challenge - Eccentrity
Driving back home I saw this burnt out car and thought that it might make a good prop for a self protrait on the subject. What beter way to capture eccentricity than with some eccentric behaviour. As I was shooting this photo I felt very excentric especially as the cars drove bye wondering what I has doing jumping in and out and on top of the burnt out car.
As I took the last shot of the session it came to me to make it like I was just stepping out of the car and asking the question "Hey what happened to my car?" I also made decided that it would be good to dress up in some props as well, hence the snow boots and my really old ski beanie.
The photo was taken with both a 0.6 ND filter and hard grad 0.6 ND filter to make the sky pop and the colours seem more dense.
