The Life You Dream Of
Dreamy golden-hour is, as we all know, the best time of day to shoot for those magic feels and good vibrations.
I had been wanting to play around with long exposure, but the effect just wasn’t hitting the exact way I wanted to. I’m DIY most of the time so….solution: a piece of holographic cellophane placed over the lens as a filter. You can get a roll of this at any fabric or craft store for less than a few bucks. It’s a super cool effect but…
This can be tricky, the cellophane can be really iffy and you can get a light streak right across your model’s face if you’re not careful. In some shots I had the paper pressed right against my lens, in others I played around with moving it in front of the lens by a few inches. All it takes is a little maneuvering to be honest, trying until you like what you see, and combined with a long exposure and some cool 70s duds – here you have it.
What do you think of these? Do they remind you of a feeling or the life you dream of?
