Over 10 years ago I photoshopped my face onto this Arlo Guthrie album cover. Just found the file while looking through my messy hard drive… If you don’t know why this is important today, on Thanksgiving, then you are not as cool as you thought. A good movie too.
My camera broke, so I sent it in to hopefully get fixed up. I suspect I will not have it back for many weeks. Until then, I will be using a tiny camera that is smaller than my thumb, the DJI Pocket 2. I bought this thing mainly for video on the go, which it does astonishingly well, but it’s not too good for photography. I mean, how can you compare a big sensor and glass to this little thing. Still, it shoots RAW DNG files, and if you know how to edit, you can make it pop.
I love manipulating photos and videos with mirror effects. Just something that has always been my “go to” in making. I was downtown by the coast and noticed how the waves were crashing up against the rocks. I filmed it for a while, then went home and added movement and symmetry.
This is one of my favorite things to find. It’s just nature, happenstance, but when you look at it, it becomes art.
Been very rainy, which is typical of Charleston at times. On rainy days I usually go through old forgotten photographs and play around with them. I made this today. To me, it has some energy and movement that it didn’t used to have.
