So my strange devise was thus.

A few years ago, my displaying crony Lauren helped me emanate an apparition called Her Stolen Heart, in that she would reason a support and we would sketch in such a approach that a support seemed to uncover what was behind her.

I entered it as one of my submissions for a New York State Fair photography foe in 2012, and although Her Stolen Heart did not make a cut, we didn’t wish to give adult on a concept.

Last weekend, we asked my displaying crony Angela if she was meddlesome in holding some displaying cinema in a Adirondacks.  She agreed.  I’ve worked with Angela before, and she – like Lauren – is a good chairman and is some-more than peaceful to poise for photos in sell for design that she can use for her displaying portfolio or for her Facebook wall.

So it was off to a Adirondacks – myself, Angela, my Nikon Df camera and a gangling design frame.  Not that orange heart frame, mind we – one of a judges told me a reason that Her Stolen Heart didn’t make a walls of a art core was given we didn’t color-correct for what eventually seemed as an orange heart.  Oops.

We found a snowy mark in a Adirondacks (yes, during this time of year every mark is snowy in a Adirondacks), and we set adult for a print shoot.  we asked her to reason a support in several locations.

Then all we have to do from this indicate is to let her “model” a frame, holding it in several locations.  Plain and simp-simps, as a aged observant goes.

And of course, I’m thinking, “This is going to be softened than Her Stolen Heart.  This is going to make it to a walls of a Harriet May Mills Art Center.  My photography skills have softened given 2012.  we can do this.”

We attempted a few opposite locations with a frame.  Then, with a sorcery of mechanism technology… we was means to emanate a following images below.

Not bad, not bad, not bad during all.  There’s some possibilities here.  we can work with this.  we think.

On a approach behind to a automobile from a print shoot, we walked by a lonesome bridge.  And it was during that impulse that we satisfied … hey wait a second, Chuck, here’s an opportunity.  You might not get this again.  If we snooze, we lose.

“Angela,” we said, “look out that window for a second.”

She did.

And we got this photo, illuminated usually by a ambient light by a window of a lonesome bridge.

And now we have, shall we say, “options.”

Because we could enter any of those “magic design frames” into foe this summer, we positively could.

But what if we wanted to enter that elementary print of Angela looking out a window?  That’s a good shot in and of itself, but any digital gimmicks or illusion.

Let’s put it this way.  I’m gripping these images in a brief piles for competition, for sure.

Man, I’m removing vehement about Competition Season 2015.

Especially if we can get photos like these.
