I recently approached a number of twitter photography friends about doing a small photo collaboration. The idea was, I will take a photo and everyone, including me, would edit or manipulate it in any way they desire. I left total creative freedom to the editors. Here they all are in thumbnail view together:
So I actually took a small group of photos for an idea I had a little while ago. My idea was sort of a reverse sunrise behind the character, rising darkness instead, in an almost graphic way. I increased the size of the crow and the dog as well as many other color, contrast, and other stuff. I ended up adding darkness tentacles as a later idea, still not sure if I like that part or not. To add to the disturbing nature of the photo, I added in contrasting clouds that are actually upside down. Though not immediately noticeable, the unnaturalness of this makes the viewer slightly on edge. My image is just below:
I can’t say what went through everyone else’s heads when they did their manipulations, but I definitely loved doing this. Below you will see all the other images at 650px wide (I wish I could show them larger, but these are the restrictions of my blog design) along with their name, twitter name and web address.
Don’t ask why there are so many Chris’ in the list, it’s a coincidence, I swear! Anyway, sound off in the comments. What do you think of our experiment? Do you have a favorite image out of the group? I’d really like to do this again, and actually I already have an idea of what to do. Please subscribe so you don’t miss anything!
