Challenge: In The Style Of: cutout (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Canon PowerShot S10
Date: Jun 19, 2013
Aperture: f/2.8
ISO: Gain +1.0
Shutter: 1/6
Date Uploaded: Jun 19, 2013

A little different from his methods - I suspect him of using reflective materials, whereas I used a translucent setup.

In fact, I recycled a piece of mylar that I used for a different shot, using that homebuilt large format rig.. just used some 60 grit sandpaper to give an even rougher edgy look.

The result really does please me though - it's haunting, indistinct, and generally seems like something cutout would like, and would submit.

I'm hoping he's pleased by it.

At the very least, I'm pleased that I shot this with my $10 camera. :) Worked perfectly, couldn't imagine anything else working better.

RED?!?

Sweet!! Thank you so much everyone.

Congrats Cory- can't help but think of this as an Alien looking in the mirror, and whatever that may hold.

Strangely enough there were 5 entries which I thought they could have been from Cutout himself and they all got a 10 from me. They all are placed... in top 5.
You fooled me well.

Very freaky, not sure how you got the texture there, and not even sure if it's a real cutout, but it sure stands out!

One of my favs from the the challenge. It has a great theme, is well thought out, and follows 21.gif Cutout's influence without feeling forced. 10
