Another episode of experimenting with textures & light. I've been wanting to take portraits with different kinds of transparent sheets/film for a long time. Because a game of textures is one of the most interesting things in photography.
Photographs like those ones are usually taken with physical materials which reproduce additional visual properties of objects and surfaces, textures. It's like an interactive experience of a real-world environment. It's as if they are enhanced by photoshop-generated perceptual information, but it's not the case. You literally use different prismatic & reflective materials to get a complex image. Those materials refracting the light are your paint and a brush. You paint before you do post-production.
