This took some timing. The “interactive” wands could activate things like sprinklers, mechanisms and fog machines. I walked past this spot probably 20 times but managed to catch it at the time somebody was setting off the mist.
The washed out and colour-cast edges are done by wrapping a clear sandwich bag with a hole in the middle, around the lens which I coloured with a blue highlighter on the left and a red one on the right. The hole lets the cat’s head/eye stay sharp and in focus while the surroundings look misty and dreamy.
Result of one of the photography society workshops. We waited for a foggy night and decided to photograph some eerie scenes in the park. We came across this little isle of trees and I had the idea to put a flash behind it. What you see here is a long exposure with 10+ flash fires.
