29th January, and number twenty-nine in the massively big and ginormous 365 image series.

I had the idea for this shot a few days ago and decided to do it tonight. My hands touching the ceiling near the light fitting. Ah, ya gotta love the self timer and tripod!

Main image had levels adjustment and was converted to black and white and was then softened with a gaussian blur layer. Three texture layers finished it off.

Canon EOS 20D / Canon USM 28mm-105mm lens.

I’ve been taking photographs since 1997 and I still love it. After a brief dislike of photomanipulation I now use Photoshop extensively on a majority of my work. People are my favourite subject and I’m always on the look out for new models, so drop me a line if you’re interested! :)

    Very interesting work. I find myself trying to decide if the hands (yours) reach for a wall to get through it, or simply want to reach. Whatever you felt about it, it’s very cool, indeed

  • Thank you, Maureen. :)
