Now I have fully grasped the concept of 3D anaglyph photography I have decided to make my work personal. I was doing work based on abstraction in three dimensions, however I found that I reached a limit where there was nothing personal to it.
I started to think how can I make my work personal and this is when I discovered ‘Art Brut’ or otherwise known as ‘Outside Art’, where self taught artists work spontaneously without influence from the outside world. These artist generally have some form of mental illness.
This was very intense to discover as I suffer from bipolar disorder and decided then to work spontaneously but then also to use what I have learned to perfect a kind of self portrait of my mind. To put my emotions onto canvas and my mental state and then digitally manipulate the images to create a final image. These all show different mental states. This image shows me on a particularly good day and slightly manic, however look at my other images and you will get a different sense of the pole changes in moods.
Asked by a close childhood friend if I would take some photographs whilst at his wedding,
never done anything like this before. So practice and experience make perfect.
Not something I intend to do for the future but I could see myself doing it occasionally.
Gave me the chance to be professional with my camera and focus on something particular.
Here is one of my favourite images. This could become a good part time business proposition. However the hours and editing are hectic, I see why pro’s find weddings to be a challenge. Congratulations to the happy couple Kris and Amber.
So for the upcoming Canterbury festival I am exploring the theme of “nature”.
Therefore I decided the literal wasn’t interesting for me, and wanted to create types of abstracted photography.
3D is a sort of passion of mine, so experiments are going on, here was one I done just for fun, it has potential as some areas work.
However this isn’t a true anaglyph and I only manipulated one image. But that’s the point of an experiment. To try out little tricks without pressure of an amazing outcome. This experiment allows me to select certain elements of a single image and only make that part 3D. It gives me a greater sense of control and possibly the chance to learn how to be selective with the effect/illusion.
Okay so I thought it was time I tried something new and different. I have mastered the use of 3D anaglyph photography and wanted to step it up. This is a trial to see if the 3D effect could be used with mirroring. I see some potential but form and and editing would need some touch ups. New project? Why not 🙂
