This week we had a the theme transparent. I have always loved surreal photography, so I decided to create some of my own! I intended to erase my body and have the background be visible instead, but realized once I was at school that I didn't have a blank background to work with. Instead, I decided to mess around with the blur and smudge tools. As you can tell, the two photos were handled with a slightly different technique. In the first one, I blurred, smudged, and erased my exposed body to create a sort of black ghost form. After all of that, I also added a motion blur filter on top of the whole photo so the transitions would be more believable. I started the second photo intending to make it exactly like the first, but then ended up really loving having my body just blurred. I like how the second picture looks blatantly fake, I think that add to the creepy feel. If I had the chance to do this project again, I would have stuck to the original plan and made sure to take a back ground picture.
