Le Prisonier : Pour répondre à un nouveau Challenge d'auto-portrait, mais avec une vue innabituelle, j'avoue que mon idée est difficile à rendre bien claire! Une fourchette ne laisse pas grand surface de réflection.. Mais les dents deviennent un genre de prison méthaphysique. Le fait de mettre volontairement la bouche au niveau de ces dents, peut donner un double sens aussi. Voilà donc ma contribution.

Le plus dur, fut de tenir la fourchette d'une main, l'appareil de l'autre et de coordonner le tout pour avoir le bon angle et pour le portrait et pou que le plancher de bois franc aie un visuel flou mais intéressant... Beaucoup d'angles impliqués et aucun trucage :)

The Prisonner : To answer on another challenge about self-portait but with an unusual view, i admit my idea was difficult to show clearly! A fork don't have a so big reflection surface.. But the teeths became here, some kind of methaphysic prison. The fact i place intentionally the teeth at the level of the mouth, can give a double interpretation too. So here is my contribution.

The most difficult here, was to take the fork in one hand, the camera in the other and to coordonate everything to have the good angle in the reflection and in the background to make the floor have an interesting blured look too... A lot of angles inplicated and no PP :o)

OK …
On va encore se défoncer la cervelle pour trouver une photographie aussi allumé que la tienne …
Merci pour la tranquillité des méninges …
Et bravo pour vos longues dents, Monsieur Le Loup …
Antonio

Great idea and very well show. I think the placement of the fork against the background is perfect. There is much going on in this portrait. Great job!
Kevin

That's a great forkin idea! :O)
Very neat concept.
The tones are cool and the background with it's diagonal axis.
Ok, I think I have one for this challenge....but might have to wait on the next upload.

It couldn't get more unusual than this Allain. Finding yourself in a fork -- that also teeth to teeth?
'Gnawing reflection' we can call this...
Amazing...
Mukesh

Very interesting observation Wolf
I like it a lot, it shows your creativity.
Very nicely put together.
Thanks for sharing buddy

HAHA .. ton nom va bien avec cette tentative :) Tu sembles avoir de grandes dents de méchant loup ..je ne veux biensur, pas dire que tu es méchant, tout le contraire :) Enfin, tu comprendras :)
Félicitation!
Luci

very cool idea Were, i like it :)
your face can still be seen in the reflection, and the fork creates a very cool effect on the reflection :)

Very creative idea. A metaphysical prison with different dimensions(the four teeth). A very difficult process, a very amazing photo.

Salut Were wolf

Good macro shot of the fork, with great sharpness, & superb dof. Bon travail!

All right WW, I'll follow up and post mine tomorrow (even if it wasn't that I had in mind...)! Cannot keep up with your abstraction of course, which is about the most inventive I have seen for a while!!! Congrats, you must be a free spirit WW, very free...

J'aime bien l'idée, cela me fait penser à une pochette de disque. L'effet de flou du plancher est bien réussi. Je donne juste un point car sans le titre je n'aurais pas deviné le sujet.

Bye
Jean

Beau travail, Were! Effectivement, ça semble simple, mais je comprend que la réalisation a pu être difficile. J'aime bien l'angle que tu as donné à la fourchette. Excellent!

Lol, il fallait y penser à celle-là... et aussi parvenir à la mettre en oeuvre!
Jolie réussite pour ce challenge, même si on a bien du mal à te reconnaitre :)
Martine

Very creative. I like the background, and I like the metaphysical prison interpretation.

You really get fantastic ideas and I am sure you are blessed with a good funny bone. This is a real creative self portrait and I just love the way the tines come as your teeth but just be careful they are getting to your comera, if I remember correctly you just got a new one recently :)

Well done TFS

An 'ouch'-picture! Too sharp or too hot or transporting bad foot. My associations; never mind!
My emotion proves the value of this.
Without your distorted face it was already good enough.

Great work Were Wolf

Very unusual SelfPortrait captured. The color tones and the idea are great. Nice work!

Excellent job of a very different self portrait Alain. I think you succeeded very well with the lighting which must have been quite difficult. Also the blurred floor makes a good neutral backdrop for the reflecting tines of the fork. Well done.

Hi Were,
LOL! I like your idea of this theme and I have got myself an idea to make a special self portrait too. Fun!
Regards,
Paul

Unique idea!!! Your photos keeping their liveness with your words again.
There is so many reflections of us in this world some shows like we are in prison, some shows we are so big or strong, some shows us that we are weak... Dont believe them, the real is inside of us always.. Ohh..sorry what i'm saying? i should talk about photography :)

So intresting idea Werewolf, thanks...
Elif

Unique and very creative image. Congratulations for your very artistic work!
Vassilis

Hmmm...you look much better from this perspective ;))) Cool and creative!

Fameuse ta derniere idee Alain!!! bravo

Ros

Well,
I must admit that it is very creative and very engineous of you. And you have goos sense of balance since nothing fell :0))))
Nice one Alain. great concept and nicely done!

take care, Stef :))

You look like a comic book personage with square head and enormous smile. :) Great idea and bravo for a perfect coordination of so many objects at the same time. :))
