“Birds scream at the top of their lungs in horrified hellish rage every morning at daybreak to warn us all of the truth, but sadly we don't speak bird.”
These were my favourite two from my Level 2 Photography Exam last year and ended up being the last two photos on my board.
The first photo was literally taken about 4 hours before the board was due. Using a craft knife to line her face I weaved in the strips of sheet music I’d been using throughout the year.
The second photo the sound holes, (f-holes I think they’re called?), were done in photoshop but the string on her back were manually sewn in. I didn’t realise at the time I was referencing Man Ray’s work, I had the idea from Vanya, (The White Violin), from the comic Umbrella Academy by Gerard Way and Gabriel Ba.
I’m a sucker for manual manipulations, partially because they’re wonderful and partially because photoshop hates me with a burning passion.
My originals, please don’t delete the source or repost.
