The struggles of reality
And the struggle to become real
They're tearing you apart dear
You're tearing yourself apartTutorials and Resources
- Bounce lighting: [link]
- Ancient Warmth action: [link]Materials and Methods
Nikon D80 + Nikon AF Nikkor 50mm F/1.8D + IR remote. SB-600 for bounce lighting against a nearby white wall. A dark towel was hung in the background. Greyscaled using the blue channel in post + Ancient Warmth action and some desaturation for the sepia effect. Sharpening to bring out the textures.
I've seen this technique done once before. You take a photo. Print it out. Then scratch the photo with a pair of scissors. Then rescan the photo. I believe the photo was from dA but my memory may be faulty. It was also a sepia or greyscaled shot except of a man tearing apart his chest. If anyone happens to know the photo I'm talking about, I'd love to link back and give proper credit for the inspiration.Additional Comments
Originally submitted on FB, but it's a cool technique that I thought I'd share here too. I'm very happy with the way this turned out. I know it's one of those grotesque, not-so-pretty type of photos but it's a great technique that ultimately evokes a thought-provoking concept and at the end of the day, to inspire thought is much better than having something be "pretty".
