OM (self portrait)

Sit in a darkened room, take a photo with a remote. After the flash, draw a reverse OM-symbol in the air with a flashlight. Repeat until satisfied.


Softbox on the left of the camera, gridded flash pointed to the backdrop.

    very exciting - is this the same technique used in Gjon Mili's photo of Picasso and the Centaur?

    (I just picked up an old film camera text book that featured that photo.)
  • Sami Taipale 7y

    Yes, it's the same technique. I was inspired by that exact picture :-)

    I am impressed. I have subscribed to your feed in the hopes of learning something about flash but as an aside; it looks like you have a beautiful life.

    Cheers - Namaste.
