I had nothing to do with it. Warren Christmas took this.
Denny uploaded a second shot. Here’s my take.
When I first opened this shot I was immediately struck by its remarkable symmetry and framing. So I decided to add a border overlay filter that made more transparent for the viewer just how Denny handled the composition. Being me, I also processed for contrast and color boost.
The idea has been kicking around for a couple years now thanks to Michael Pecaut. Now six of us (Mike, Greg Thow, Greg Stene, Evan Robinson, Denny Wilkins and myself) are going to do it.
I’m not sure what to expect. Most of my colleagues are more faithful, straight-up photographers, so I might anticipate them taking a direct path. I tend to be more digital artsy than photographery, so I may take more liberties. Or I could be wrong.
I do know I was told I – in forceful language – couldn’t submit any of my doll shots, which I think is horribly unfair….
Anyway, I’ll have my first one up shortly.
