back-lit
« on: November 15, 2010, 10:45:39 AM »

The acrylic panels are back-lit because the pigments in them are semitransparent and more vivid that way.  Please critique.  Bruce

"Cluttered" is my first thought here Bruce. There is too much in the photo ( for me) to see where you want me to look or what the subject is as it all seems to be the same shade of blandness.

   The image is the photograph to the edge of the frame.  I hope to make photos using the panels, which are very different in kind from a fixed picture and somewhat like unmounted lenses.  They are highly variable with lighting and angle of view and background.  Bruce

I think the image is a little confusing - it is mostly abstract shapes with no point of reference to
give a sense of perspective or scale. Also the straight-ahead camera position is a bit static.
Good idea, but I think you could do more with this image!

I tried some postprocessing to re-balance the image.
Its not perfect, I just wanted to show that it might be possible to "save" this highly interesting and complex object.

   The head panel and I are flattered by your spot light.  It seems as though I could use some of that drama.  However, it's all a flat screen to me.  Sometimes  I have hoped there could be a common visual language, but this forum suggests to me that the best we can do is find what we can use and make our different languages stronger and  maybe more understandable.  I attach yet another intentionally static and distributed flat screen where depth clues and priorities have been have broken to my will.   Bruce

So you want it to stay flat? I'm not sure I really grabbed it.....
