The Whole Story
Like a lot of my ideas, this one has been whirling in my head for a long time. The original genesis for the image was to create a series of images of a person going through life on autopilot (hence the robot). However, sometimes as I'm creating the image, I discover a new way to present the image that I had not though of before. I was recently invited to submit work to the "Mobile Art L'arte è Mobile - Festival FuturoPresente 2014" show in Italy. The theme of the show is conflict. So I re-imaged the original concept I had about living live on autopilot and created this image. I wanted to create an image that implied conflict but was ambiguous as to what the conflict is. I still intend to create the life auto pilot series but the timeline for that project is still open.
Shot the image with 645 pro and a softbox light in color.
Took it into Monokrom to make it B&W.
Took the color pic into Superimpose, overlaid the B&W image on top and masked the robot so the color image came through.
Took image into Snapseed and applied the "HDR Scape" filter "Strong" setting.
Staying in Snapseed applied the "Drama" filter setting "Drama 2".
Finally, took image into the Bleach Bypass app and applied the "Cinematic" filter.
The Photographer - Petyr Campos
I don't adhere to any one particularly style of photography. Every image has its own story to tell which I try to tease out through my approach in treatment and edits. Some images shine with a painterly look, while others work nicely with a grunge look. At the end of the day, I try to create something that is true to myself and the image and hopefully resonates with the viewer.
