Duos and Redos

The first duo (and redo) is another in-camera multiple exposure in the series with Solace for the Wild Rest and Being and Becoming. With Earthbound Angels (below),  I also added a white, transparent scarf as an image element when making the choreographed exposures, creating the wing-like effects. Check out the three Multiple Exposures here!

Doing something once can be a great deal of fun, but redoing it can redouble one’s pleasure. I’m having great fun with these abstractions—particularly the multiple exposures—and I’ve heard them likened to Botacelli’s La Primavera, Picasso paintings (specifically Les Demoiselles d’Avignon) and Georgia O’Keeffe skulls.

Maybe, maybe not. But I like doing something in-camera for once, and having people think it is Photoshop. Go figure, I say who cares how an image was created if it is good, but this false dichotomy of photography versus Photoshop seems to be a very emotional issue for some people. I guess the world will always have its big-enders versus little-enders because a bone to quarrel over is easier than actually becoming creative.
