*Fantastic* Van Gogh-like Polaroid of the Millennium Bridge in London, no Photoshop.
check out russian hero:
They very well might have put it in photoshop to convert it to the right format and such...in other words:
HOAX HOAX HOAX!!!
It's not a hoax. This effect can be easily done as stated. Lucas Samaras has been doing this for years, with some pretty cool results.
I doubt this is a hoax. While it is an extremely clean alteration, I've taught this technique to high school photography students with similar success. Nicely done.
My lord, I was being sarcastic.
see also Peter Gabriel's 3rd album cover.
oh, no one told you? sarcasm doesn't translate to the web.
> "sarcasm doesn't translate to the web"
damn, if only that were true of irony.
I thought it was funny, downingba.
Also, great pictures- I had not seen this technique before. I particularly enjoyed the http://levah13.photosight.ru link.
There's a book on the subject ...
do check out these works by Lucas Samaras - done in teh 70's with a polaroid SX-70. Good Stuff.
Don't forget the three other similar photos on the site:
Or check out the Celebrity SX70 portraits done by Michael Dare in the '80s.
He did one of me when we met at a dull party in '85... can't imagine why my pic isn't in the on-line collection.
Awesome. Absolutely awesome. Humans didn't always need Photoshop to tweak their potos ;).
