For the Contest Beauty in Everyday Objects i had taken a picture of a paperclip that has the dimensions 25mm x 9mm. I had chosen this product because it is one of these products nearly everybody has this at home, in the office, in school or wherever. It is clipping paper or other things together not more or less But really functional since paperclips produced industrially in about 1890.
I had taken this picture with my Polaroid Macro 5 camera and a expired image Softone film from the Impossible Project. The film is called Edge Cut. You can find information for the camera and the film on the Impossible-Project webside. After the Polaroid picture came out i scanned it and saved as a jpg.file, nothing more. I had taken this picture on 17th of May 2011
I choosed the image section because i like the graphic style with the paperclip between the sides af a book and the vanishing points which arise out of the composition. Also really impressive for me are these fine fibres on the edge of the paper.
I am finally happy with my Lara cosplay! I have been tweaking and shooting for weeks now. This is the one! NOTE: this photo is self shot and edited. Everything is made by hand. If used anywhere outside the site please credit Alexa Karii and link back to [link]
imagine this: you are playing outside with your favorite toy. suddenly you throw it and it finds its way inside a window. this window leads to the basement. you go open the door to the basement, turn on the single light bulb, and make your way slowly down the stairs. you move slowly because that light bulb doesn't fully illuminate the whole basement. you can barely make out the furniture and trinkets that lie in the darkness. and that feeling , of not knowing what lies beyond, stops your descend. you question if you should keep going. your instincts tell you this is not a safe place. fear creeps in.
you can see your toy, on the floor. is not far away. your instinct get overpowered by your desire and you continue down. you make sure not to touch anything else, its dusty and cover in spiderweb. you're at the bottom, about to pick your toy and suddenly...that feeling. something in the dark is watching me.
you grab your toy and start running! fear and panic propel you out. you run and every step of the way out, you can feel as if something is right behind you. right behind you , and getting closer. you can feel it near your neck. YOUR'E OUT! slam the door shut. trembling, you swear to never ever go down there ever again.
and that's my childhood terror. you know i don't normally don't do contest but the moment i read the description for it, an image pop in my head. so i was like "well why not". its very rare that i get an exact image of what i want in my head, but this one just solidified rather quickly. and im double impressed in that it basically came out just like i picture it in my head.
i would say that the fear image is the enviroment itself.
Sorry for the random title again but I had no original idea again for it So, here is my entry for the "Train your brain" contest. I've spent the past 3 weeks on this one during my spare time. I've learnt a lot through the process, but I've reached the point where I miss that little something to know what to do to bring it to the next stage. Hopefully I'll learn it in the near future, because it's a bit frustrating.
I'd like to thank my fellow kitcheneers artists for their help and support, as they always do when I need them. You guys rock!
I hope you'll enjoy. Now onto something else, I've just had a little spark of inspiration. Stay tuned!
