Photo Details

  • Title: Out Sick
  • State/Province/Region (required): Massachusetts
  • Country (required): United States
  • Nearest Town: Easthampton
  • Description: Image Style: Hu-Mosaic (Human Mosaic) It is style where you seeming take a regular scene and by adding a human subject you tell a store shot by shot. This image is actually several in one. The camera was stationary and then images were blended together in post processing. It was first my attempt of this type of shooting. I hold it as one of my favorite images.
  • Brief Directions: 1) Set camera up in a stationary position 2) Take a picture of the key frame or blank scene 3) Pose you subject performing various activities that tell the story you are looking to tell. 4) using Photoshop or another software to merge the images, merge them into a single frame. Similar to an HDR but slightly more complex. Tips: You want to use an aperture between 8 - 16 (so you need alots of natural light) I would not recommend using a flash but external lights can be used as long as you do not move either. In order to help not moving the camera you can use live view to scope the scene. Once the camera is set you do not want to touch it. Take more than picture for each pose so you have options to choose from.
  • Notes: After shooting this I have decided to take on a project of making more telling more stories of basic human nature through Hu-Mosaics.
  • Best Season: Winter
  • Gear: T1i
