the idea is unique…
Very nice, reminds me of a piece done by Bruce McLean in the seventies… Good work.
i like this and im quite hard to please
pretty cool and unique idea
i like it, creative idea
Super! I wanted to do something similar to this like a year ago, but instead of the black cardboard, some old TVs. [:
Wow these are really sweet. I really like the second to last one……well I really like all of them actually.
Brilliant idea, the shots are really lovely
a friend wanted to make a film with this premise of transparency years ago… he should have, it all looks so beautiful
how exactly is this done?
im pretty sure its two photos taken from the same spot (tripod) one with the figure, one without. the photos laid on top of one another, the shape is removed from the shot with the figure to reveal the empty space of the second photo. simple and effective
Guess we are, at last, able to see your true colors, and that’s why I love you, so don’t be afraid to let them show! Peace!
@JEFFHAMADA and @HANNA … we’ve been debating it’s method as a “mirror trick” with the subject holding a mirror and a mirror set up at just the right angle facing the subject near the photographer
i can see how it might look like that but it’s not – its definitely the landscape showing behind the subject
i agree. i was on the other side of the “mirror trick” debate. either way… it’s extra cool, love it!
The easiest way to do this would to be to take a picture without the girl first the one with her with the black cardboard. then to photo shop the background in with any shape you like. The black cardboard would make it easy to because it very distinguishable from the actual background. A nice simple idea that has made some very nice photos. Although maybe they did it a different way, I am not by any means an expert on these matters.
