COLLAGES FROM THE HOME

WORDPRESS WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: COLLAGES


Technically, these aren’t really collages. Each is a solarization of a room in the house – living room, dining room, and kitchen. Wide angle, from various vantage points.

Although these aren’t “pasted together,” they give a similar sense resulting from the visual confusion of images, the alteration of colors, the distortion of items.

These juxtapositions of “special effects” are built into my camera. I used to be able to create similar effects using paper in the dark room by opening the door and allowing a few seconds of light into the room.

Of course, back then I couldn’t predict the result — but I still can’t predict the results anyway, so this is close enough.

    1. It is one of the art settings. It used to be called “solarized,” but now it’s called something else and I forget what. I had to scroll through them until I spotted it. If you’ve got a camera that has art settings, take a look. You may have it too.

        1. Just scroll through your “art” settings. There’s a ton of stuff in there, much more than I’ve ever used and the results can be very interesting. I think a lot of us don’t use those settings much, so it’s worth just scrolling through and seeing what you’ve got. There are probably a variety of things for portraits and groups and landscapes and pets and sports too. I have use the black & white, sepia, and some of these oddballs.

    1. And I’m willing to bet your camera has the same filter in it. Most cameras do. These are a lot of fun to do, especially in a place which is bright and busy. Try it in a brightly lit woods some time. It’s very different than when you do it with an external filter.
