Hybrid Photography Work In Progress

My Process So Far

I started by creating some base images to experiment with. I set my camera to an interval mode on a tripod so that I could create a sequence of self-portraits that I could later choose from as the basis for experimentation.

The night previous I had had the worst of migraines and I found myself trying to put pressure on my head in various places to relieve the pain. At the same time, I was trying to cover my eyes from the sunlight that was making the pain feel worse. I decided to use these contortions as a base for this work. The images reflect back to me the personal struggle of dealing with inner pain. I’ve sent off for lab prints of a number of the images below in both a Lustre Matt finish and a matt velvet finish as I expect the different finishes will influence the various effects that I want to try on the prints.
