Day 212: Blue Lips
Shot no. 2 in the 30 days of music series. Today’s shot was inspired by Regina Spektor’s “Blue Lips.” If you haven’t heard it, you can find it on You Tube here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ccZuKOTb6ug This is, of course, a composite. The underlying shot of lips I took today. The overlying shot is of an umbrella reflection in a puddle I’d taken several weeks ago. I originally intended to do all of this in a single shot, but being your own model, submerged in a tub with your camera hanging above your head gets tricky. Don’t even get me started on focusing issues.
