Senate Spinback

Perturbing Self-Portraits
~ Senate Spinback ~

And here's me in front of the French Senate, albeit rather blurred. Playing with my new technique of spinning with the camera to make the background blurred and it works remarkably well. The main image isn't toally sharp, of course, but that just adds to the atmosphere I reckon.

I'm on a bit of a crusade at the moment against photos which are too perfect. Probably because all the stuff I'm taking at the moment is far from that! But joking aside, I love imperfection, and we can inject it into our shots in a hundred different ways and they're all the better for it.

Originality, and taking it away from reality, should be an obligatory subject at school I reckon. Keep the imagination simmering. That's what I say. ;~S
