It was probably evident in last night’s shot that I was aiming for something on the macabre side. I wonder if there are things I can do to enhance the gothishness a bit. So I played around a little and came up with these four alternate takes.
First, let’s leave Ed as is and desaturate the background.
Next, let’s try a motion blur on the background to see if we can get a little vertigo/disconnectedness going on.
Hmmm. What if we combine the two?
Finally, let’s colorize the background with some cliched sick horror flick green.
I don’t know what I think. But this should be a lesson to simple country horses. Stay on the farm where the pastures are wide open and the grass is free. Nothing good comes from city life.
