By typing “cubist photo”, and related terms, into Google image search one will find a lot of post-shutter spliced images. How nice, doesn’t anybody do this geometrically, without resorting to a pair of scissors and glue (virtual or otherwise)? Here is my crack at looking “cubist” using nothing more than camera and lighting. (there was a mirror involved too.)
The first setup was for experimental purposes only. The principal virtue of using a shop dummy is that one can take a lot of time even if it is a cold evening. They also don’t move around much and never complain.
Take 2 (to about 50) involved more care in the positioning of things.
Much happier with Cubist 2.
Below is what it looked like with the ambient lighting, together with a special appearance by an electrical outlet.
More to come…
