Growth by cgarner


@northy challenged me this week to a surreal portrait and with the five plus two challenge of frames this week I decided to portal myself!

In 2015 I took a portrait here that I titled 'Girl, missing' which is were my head went to immediately when Northy challenged me to a surreal portrait ( ... well there's much more of me actually missing in this photo but I feel much more whole, more me, more stable than 5 years ago, growth seemed like an appropriate title.
Hi @northy... another attempt at a surreal portrait, thanks for the challenge, I had a lot of fun with this one! :)

Oh - this is so cool!! You definitely have post processing down to a fine art!! I cannot imagine how you did this!
My last challenge - which I am still working on - required post processing and I am having a really hard time so I envy your skills!
We are partnered for this week's get pushed challenge. You did an awesome double exposure for your tag challenge. This week's challenge is to do an IN-CAMERA double exposure. (you did mention that you needed more practice when you posted your tag challenge entry, LOL!!)
Looking forward to seeing what you come up for me.

@farmreporter Thanks Wendy! It was tricky and made more tricky by using a rocking chair so it was always in a slightly different position each photo I took, but I really wanted that see through back to make the most impact.

Yes, I definitely need more practice at double exposures, thank you for the motivation, I will give it another go!

Hi Charlotte, I'm your get-pushed partner this week. How about experimenting with your new 50mm 1.4 lens to create outdoor/landscape shots? As an extra level of challenge, you could try shooting in low light levels - i've read this lens is supposed to be good for that, too

@valpetersen hi Val, thanks so much for your challenge this week, I don't take many landscapes so this will be a good challenge, thanks! I will post yours on your page in a mo! :)

@cgarner for get pushed how do you feel about using one of your portraits - or taking a new one - and creating an abstract

@annied Great challenge, thank you, I'll give it a go!

Brilliant surreal selfie. For your Get Pushed challenge what do you think of movement? Hope you can return the favour by challenging me to something.

@la_photographic thanks for the challenge... As you can probably see I'm a bit behind as I haven't been too well recently but I will give it a go.
