Scans

I don’t think this technique is going to work but I wanted to try  it out anyway. I’ve scanned in the fabric, edited the images to make the fibre’s stand out and then added prism light on top of them.

This image was made via using hard light on the layer options.

I then used hardlight and made the background (scan of Jades scarf) black and white and changed the colour levels to mak it more textured.

I did this again but the scarf was messy instead of neat, and used a different prism light image.

Hard Light

Hard Light & B&W background.

Then I tried with Martinas Scarf.

All these images are okay, they look a bit over processed though, I want to try and achieve this texture and closeness without editing too much. Thats my next task.

Identity

I’ve been looking at close up photography and the idea of texture and the unseen fibres. I have done work that tackled this idea before, not intentionally but it did.

This project was based on identity and conspiracy, i tried to capture all the information the government have on us. I did this project in 2008/2009.

I achieved this texture and contrast using a scanner, maybe this is something to develop on. I could scan in sections of the fabric and then apply an image of the prism on top via photoshop.

Light patterns

The night photography project isn’t coming together too well, i’m taking an image a night on film but this means waiting a month before i see the results, so i wanted to do some digital work just to make me feel like i was doing something, as I was laying in bed i notice that if you lay at a certain angle the light from the tv reflect on my white walls and create interesting colours, shapes and patterns, which are all different every time, so here are some of the images that came out of playing around whilst watching Disneys Hercules at 2am….

There is deffinately room for improvement with these images, more could be explored, like angles of the tv, and placing multiple tv’s facing one wall and seeing how that creates light across a whole wall.

Justin M Maller

Justin M Maller is an art director and illustrator, i first came across his work in fantasy art magazine, and decided to look him up. The work i found was completely different to his tutorial featured in the magazine. His Beautiful use of textures and patterns reminded me of John French’s work (which you can see in an earlier blog post here).
