During our ongoing sheltering/self-isolating to minimize the spread of the current global pandemic, I’ve had ideas about architectural photographs that I wanted to… play with.
I’m a pretty “strict” photographer: I DO like to capture images exactly as I want them, and DO NOT like to significantly edit my photos. I don’t manipulate them very much, except for the infrared images, which require extensive adjustments (they are black and red more than black and white when I create them).
But for art? I’m willing to do some REAL manipulation. To make something new. (A phrase from Natalie Portman’s character in the sci-fi movie Annihilation comes to mind, but the ‘making something new’ there requires some serious destruction… GREAT film, by the way. Ahem.)
My Cousin introduced me to a software tool for Android/Google OS devices called MirrorLab, and I find it delightful. (I know sensible photographers keep their secrets, and that these images aren’t ABOUT the software: but I’m also a teacher, and I want others to succeed.) I used it for this project, and it did exactly what I was after. I like this tool!
I hope you enjoy these. They are both ‘like something I would do,’ and not. 🙂
