I shot this with a Nikon DSLR and then used a combination of Adobe Photoshop CS6 and various iPhone apps (including Afterlight and Mextures) to create a dreamlike, digital surrealist photograph.
No face is perfectly symmetrical. Try photographing someone face on, open the image in Photoshop and select half the face, then select “Layer Via Copy” use the Flip Horizontal tool and then drag the half face across to make a symmetrical image.
The finishing touches were added using Mextures and Afterlight for iPhone to create a surreal, dreamlike image.
I’m doing an illustration for a 150th anniversary edition of Lewis Carroll’s “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland”
As luck would have a a local model had an Alice costume so I thought I’d kill two birds with stone and do an Alice photo shoot and also get some reference shots for the illustration. I’ll post the Alice series when I have time to edit the photos.
In the meantime I grabbed some iPhone shots using the Hipstamatic App before the shoot ended. I used the random settings, which means shaking the iPhone after every shot (sometimes people stare when I do that)
