Nienke Klunder

Really diggin’ these transitioning portraits by Nienke Klunder. This series, from a soldier to a clown, is actually a lot more gradual – I’ve only included half the images. It reminds me of that one scene-change in Adam Freeland’s We Want Your Soul where the guy is holding a tv remote and suddenly he’s a soldier holding an M-16. (Love that video)

Diane Ducruet

Diane Ducruet’s staged family portraits appear silly and light-hearted at first glance, but there is quite a seriousness to them if you really look. Ducruet says they are commentary on family dynamics, control and power.

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.)
