Project #6 – Pixel Portraits!

Here is Booooooom Project #6! Pixel Portraits! Throw on one of your favourite movies. Pause it. Pull out your camera (make sure the flash is off). Snap a portrait of one of the actors (depending on your shutter speed you may need to try several times before you get one without a dark bar moving across the image).

Upload your photo using the form below! Make sure you include your name but don’t worry about including the movie title or character’s name, part of the fun will be everyone else trying to guess. Once there are several submissions I will post the gallery and the guessing game can begin.

I don’t want screenshots from a computer, I want portraits shot with a camera in all their pixelated glory!

Do you know the title of this movie? The character’s name? (Bonus points awarded if you know the line of dialogue.)

If you have trouble with this form you can email me directly with the subject line “pixel portrait“.

Submit your own entry!

      unless you get some error message, it should have worked. if you don’t see your shot added to the gallery when it’s online then email direct.

    The movie is Dear Wendy and it is about a group of young pacifists with guns!

    That’s all I know without cheating and looking at IMDB.
