I/Eye: On Photography

Dahlia and apples

Posted in Still life by Sheila Newbery on September 14, 2017

A still life with dahlia, apples, and painted cardboard surfaces. Shot on Fuji instant film. The wavy effect is achieved not by photoshopping, but by interposing a layer of glass between subject and lens. Any movement of the lens in relation to the subject produces a different image — slightly different patterns of distortion, that is. Composing can be a little tricky for this reason.
