Human Dimension
« on: October 04, 2019, 07:27:59 pm »

I have been experimenting the last few months with different techniques to combine multiple exposures. As an outcome of this I found a way were the common elements are darkened and the varying elements are lilghtened and coloured (a very basic explanation), so I came with this idea for a personal project "Human Dimension" as it is the living beings who appear lightened in an otherwise dark static background.

Here are some of the images of this experiment:


Going to work: Walking or cycling is part of the daily commute to work for many. Over time it is like a river flowing across the pathways





Hosier lane - One of the famous Melbourne lanes, Hosier Lane attracts locals and tourist to photograph, be photographed or just admire the street art.





The magic portal - The National Gallery of Victoria water window is a mesmerising place especially for the young, who are attracted to it as if it were a magic portal.





Going to the expo - Going to or coming from the Melbourne Expo & Convention Centre, with a few observant birds. Simply part of the weekend routine.





Stay Fit - Jogging or riding, fleeting but fulfilling, both ideal ways to stay fit, both ideal ways to shut away the world around us.

I have yet to look through everything but I think this is very interesting and has a lot of potential. I thought about doing something vaguely similar (much less complex though) so I appreciate the idea and the realization even more.

Whereas the others are examples of a technique, the "Water window" is beautiful, regardless of technique employed; it just lives as its own holistic being.

Thanks Armand, I keep practicing and experimenting with the technique as there are many variables that influence the results, so yes, a lot of potential.

Thanks for your comment Rob, that image is also my favorite. I have in my mind many things that I want to try and explore. I expect to this will be a long term personal project.

I think you are onto a good thing, worth much more experimenting.

So do I. It looks like a lot of fun, and some of the resulting images are standouts. Not to mention unique; not much chance of producing just another tourist shot, even when shooting a touristy place.

It's fascinating stuff, Francisco. Keep working with it. It's possible, partly, because we're now in a digital world. Would have been possible with film, but extremely difficult. It opens a whole new world of photographic creativity.

I agree with this assessment. Just keep experimenting. Take the last image posted, I really like it, but don't like that the face of the walker between the cyclists turned blue. So many ways and possibilities. Keep going...

Interesting and I agree it has great potential. Some of these are really nice! Good thinking.
