Photoshoot of Megaera

Last weekend I took the photographs of Megaera, the second of the three Furies — many thanks to Alice for modelling (again!).

I managed to shoot 668 photos — it’s simply amazing how differently you approach photography when you’re working with a digital camera (a Panasonic Lumix G1 — not quite officially a digital SLR, but as close as makes no difference) that allows you to take several thousand photographs, compared to having to mentally keep track of how many rolls of film you have to hand.

I’m quite enjoying manipulating a photograph until it’s almost a painting, playing with the lights & shadows to create an impossible Baroque chiaroscuro.

I’ll be adding some more manipulated photographs to the artwork galleries over the next few days.
