It’s been raining in Seattle. You’re stunned aren’t you? As it turns out, on Monday, November 19 we had record breaking rainfall in the city and I had a heck of a water taxi ride returning home.
When the rain is this heavy out, I very rarely venture out with my camera and start looking for odd projects in my home. Sometimes I play with forks and make abstract shapes. Today, since I was at home recovering from my dental implant procedure, I decided to play with some aluminum foil. I like to create interesting shapes from everyday things. It’s challenging and makes me look at ordinary objects in extraordinary new ways.
For these foil shots, I tore sheets of foil, crumpled them a tad and laid them out on my floor. I believe I could make the edges sharper by pulling the Zero Image back a bit more. I also believe this would be the first layer of a concept I am working out. First steps first.
I would like your input on these two images. Is the black space preferred or not?
Take care, be safe, and mahalo.
Update (15 minutes later) : I’ve decided I don’t like the foil after all. There are better materials that lend themselves to pinhole imagery.
