  • Space Model Composite!

    Space Model Composite!

    I finally got around to compositing this latest image from a photo-shoot that took place last winter. I had the idea for this one in my head for quite a while, but I never could find the right image to blend in with the model.

    A quick test of a VERY old 16mm Vistascope anamorphic adapter grafted onto my Panasonic GF1. Sorry for the crappy quality and shakiness of the footage. I didn’t have my makeshift steady-cam on me at the time The footage was taken in AVCHD mode in extremely low light conditions.
