here is my latest self portrait, and also a good example of the types of things i like to use a digi cam for.
firstly, as far as i’m concerned, my digicam is much better for night photography.
secondly, i can go out in the middle of the street, take a few shots, and come back inside and make this in like 20 minutes. and there would probably be no point to doing this in film, because it requires photoshop anyways – so i just cut out the middle man.
okay, so if you want to know how i did this: i took one picture of the background without me in it. used manual settings, and let the flash fire, although i angled it so it wouldn’t hit the ground, but would hit me where i was going to be. i took the second photo sitting on a stool. then in photoshop, i stacked them, and masked out the stool. very easy. you can do this with so many ideas, creativity is up to you.
i was inspired to make this by http://photoextremist.com/ … check out his youtube vids – he has all types of energy to make crazy light paintings and night photography and superimposed images.
