Heather was flipping through a Richard Avedon book this weekend and was pointing out some of the images. There were quite a few where the subject was blurred and had crazy colors – very sixties-looking. Since following Heather’s suggestions is always a good idea, I had worked up an image in this psychedelic style.
I took several images – all with me moving around to create blur – then I tried playing with the different colors. I finally came up with an ok image and started deciding how to crop it. I accidentally double-clicked on the face, causing the image to zoom in and crop very, very tight – much closer than I would have ever attempted.
Strangely enough, I thought it was kind of cool. It almost has the abstract feel of the Week 26 image.
