OM (self portrait)

    Newer Older

    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.)

      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.
