I fell in love with Ladytron when their Witching Hour album came out a few years ago. Visually, I’m currently in love with their video for Tomorrow. It’s like a series of softly lit polaroids.
Along somewhat similar lines, Barbara Cole was recently called in for work on an Anthropologie catalog. Barbara specializes in underwater photography, and you can see a bit of insight into her process here. The light in her photographs is distorted, played with, discovered. The colors are definitely intense, which pleases me greatly.
So, I’m just curious if anyone has an opinion on the following.
Here is the first, an original of some poppies in front of my house on a partly cloudy day.
Here is the same photo, “polaroided” by myself in under 5 minutes. I tried to add more yellows and softness to achieve the effect, which was actually a little tough because of the intense red of the flowers.
