From the last few days


Been playing around with a slightly new technique, which has been very exciting (if you're around me at all, I'm sure I haven't shut up about it). Anyway, I'm partly through the Ely's, though I'm hesitant to post anything until after the show. Maybe I'll jump the gun. The top image is Stanley Kubrick filming the path of the sun over the course of 8 months. More here. Kubrick did not actually film the sun, but he did take a notoriously long time on set to film.


This is just a straight up portrait of the master himself (Kubrick).





'Boring as fuck' still life experiment.

The one of Kubrick filming is beautiful.

Akira Kurosawa was the first to film pointing the camera at the sun for lighting. He did this in Rashomon. He also used mirrors to redirect to sunlight as needed.
