Old Glory

Assignment: pca 109

Date: June 14th - 20th, 2010

Take this as an abstract concept or quite literally. Create an image that represents fluidity or shows the unique properties of any given fluid.


WIT: My first ideas for this assignment were to go with water or fabric. I went with fabric. While sitting at a stop light I noticed a series of flags flying over a auto parts store. The light was about right and the wind just strong enough to make manageable ripples in the fabric. I ended up cropping in quite a bit to fill the image with flag. Someday a longer lens will allow me to zoom in and frame this in camera. For post processing I upped the contrast somewhat and created a separate layer to which I added a chrome effect. Blended the two layers to just add a touch of the chrome.
