I'm not fond of being photographed, but I thought it only fair that I participate in a projection photography shoot, since I've subjected family, friends and more than a dozen different models to many such shoots. For this shoot, Noa Slickers, a young photographer (and model) ran the beamer, suggested poses and took the shots. I had put together a set of digital images to be used, including photos of vintage cameras, paintings, colorful designs, graffiti, and batiks.
Shooting projection portraits in a dark room is a special challenge for the photographer---imagine changing camera settings in the dark? But I learned that it also quite difficult for the model. Because the room is so dark, all you can see is the bright beamer light. You can't see what is being digitally painted onto you. And since you can't see the photographer, taking directions from her is quite hard. Still, at the end of the day, some interesting images seem to emerge from this process, so I guess that's what counts. If you'd like to see the full series, download the PDF catalog by clicking here.
