I thought I’d share some experimental work I shot recently that was inspired loosely by the notion of celebrity, the video Maps by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs (directed by the very talented Patrick Daughters), and sensor bloom as art.
For the right brainers amongst us, consider this stuff on the merits of the peculiar, cold, distanced aesthetic united with the white-hot lights. For the left brainers, consider what’s happening with the camera sensor (blooming) to achieve these images and how the linking of multiple blooms actually works.

All these jpgs have just been run very quickly thru Aperture and have not been retouched in Photoshop at all (so don’t pay attention to those pesky little blemishes). They’re by no means finished files, just conceptual evaluations:
Thank you for sharing your experimental work with us; such sharing makes us all better in the end one way or another. Plus, it is a very artistic result which is good for the eyes and spirit.
Oh, are we supposed to post a critique or an opinion too? Ok, not loosing site of the fact that this was an experimental work and not a paid for shoot, I like them 🙂
