Dos Equis by eDamak Dos Equis by eDamak
Sometimes you just cant find a model, no one is willing to do it, or there is just nobody around... so a man has to do what a man has to do... self portrait. test shot for a new series.




DD EDIT: I cannot thank ~Junaid and ^Tiganusi enough for this, i truly appreciate it. Also everybody who took the time to write a comment or fave it... Thank you! i do read them and smile, i do peek at your profile and reply as much of them as i can.

About the image, being asked over and over NO, no XX bottles were harmed while making this shot, none was broken and yes i did drink them all, or most, but not on the same day... ;)

It is a multiple exposure, one shot for the jump and a few others for the flying bottles, merged together in Ps. A bit of layering, high pass, saturation, levels, contrast, shadow-highlights, some topaz, color and voila!!!

Dos Equis by *eDamak is freaking brilliant! The capture, the sense of motion, the colours, the alcoholic urges it inspires in me - it's one of my new favourite self-portraits on dA, easily! ( Suggested by Junaid and Featured by arbitrarynamechange )

I goes you really get into your work on multiple levels. Not many people can drink for the sake of their art. I love this image. It's fun.

If you need more XX bottles for another shot, we'll be glad to send you our recycles! Amazing shot, but I really like the "look" of your processing.

Whoa!! :wow: At first glance I thought the guy in the picture was juggling 11 bottles due to being drunk.

The kitchen is just like an alcoholic's dreamland (just saying it a alcoholic's point of view, nothing to do with me here), bottles and bottles of (insert preferred brand here) all over the place, in the cabinets, on the stove, any possible place to store one! Absolutely amazing (especially the number of bottles used in one shot ;))!!

And congratulations on the DD as well :clap:!!
