Rim Light

Started off the night with another multiple exposure shot that I trashed. The shot that didn't make it was of me looking into a mirror before my hair cut and another an hour later after cutting my hair looking into the camera. I then layered the shot so both images of my face would be looking into the camera. It didn't turn out well, and I think my bathroom is too small to pull off that kind of shot.

After caning the first shot I drove to a local outdoor shopping center to shoot, but I was then kicked out 20 seconds after setting up my tripod.

After being escorted out of the shopping center, I then went to Big Spring Park to take this shot. It is actually a composite of two exposures. The first was with my flash firing, and for the second; I locked the focus and turned off the flash. I then blended the two layers in photoshop after I had imported them into Lightroom. I then made several adjustments in Lighroom of the composite. Once all of those tweaks where made, I then exported the image back to Photoshop to add in Scan lines, only to import back into lightroom a 3rd time to add a grain effect.
