Week 8, Time

We have been taught that TIME is linear and never changes. But we all know that the perception of time is a different story. That is evident by a few of the phrases we’ve grown up with such as “Time flies when you’re having fun” and “A watched pot never boils”.

Recently I acquired a Lens Ball so I thought I’d see what fun perception effects I could come up with using it. I’ve lost count of how many images I captured. Funny that we depend on the auto focus so much, yet with the Lens Ball, I found that you can’t. You must look THROUGH the Lens Ball, and focus on the image in the ball, which meant manual focus. I was also using a handheld light source that only highlighted parts of the image because I didn’t want the light to reflect off the surface of the Lens Ball. Moving the light source around like I did, also meant changing the shutter speed from 1/60 of a second into a 10 second exposure.

Well, time was distorted when a 1/60 of a second exposure took me two hours to get something I was satisfied with.

Originally a large painting displayed at a very fun nursery in TriCities WA. Cropped to the most interesting swirals, mirrored and there he was, staring at me. Love the color mix and original design; love the outcome. Wish I was this talented! I enjoyed mirroring several images but liked this outcome the best.

Bubbles come from liquid. Right? I blew some bubbles in a blue bowl. This was then edited in Picasso. I enhanced the saturation.

Ricky says:

Recently my first year class learned mirror image and I decided to have some fun with an antique clock face in my studio in a montage with one of my raven quilts by Judy Alborn, the pocket watch indicates it is almost midnight - time is running out. I then duplicated the project and in Topaz added a filter - but then back in Photoshop I erased some of that layer so the magic drifted in an out rather than being one static filter over the entier image.
