“Rise the Knowledge”

This unmanipulated photograph (4269) was shot in my luxagraphic style at Golden Gardens Park (Ballard) on 30 April 2014.

Bob, Eric, and I took a ride to the park and I was able to shoot several photographs.  I met a woman doing the Hula Hoop and her Hula Hoop was lighted.  This photograph is from that part of the set.  Cool stuff.

This title is taken from the Gogol Bordello song.

Contains Sulfites

This unmanipulated photograph (4869) was shot 19 November 2011 at a friend’s house near the airport.  The subject is a bottled electronic firefly.  Quite a clever if spastic mechanism actually.

Just your basic upload preparations done: levels and contrast slightly adjusted to compensate for lighting conditions and a border added.  Everything else is due to subject motion and light curving through various media.

More to this Shot Glass than Meets the Rye

I have done several luxagraphic series where, in addition to camera motion, I have also interposed objects between the subject(s) and the lens.  Here I present a collection of nine such shots where the interposed object is a shot glass.  You could argue that the shot glass is then acting as a secondary lens or a kind of filter.  The shot glass itself may or may not be in motion as it is hand-held during the process.

I suppose I’ll start off with some of the more mundane creations and work into the more complex and stunning.  Please keep in mind that these are all pure luxagraphia.  Camera motion (and the interposed shot glass) is all that is used to create these photographs.  These are not manipulated and there has been no post-processing work done (all exceptions noted).

Alright.  There you have a nice collection of related photographs.  I hope you enjoy viewing them.  I know I enjoy shooting them (in spite of the odd looks I get from people as I’m doing it.)

Thanks for taking the time to look over my work.
