Here are some of the ideas and experiments we are going through this second semester in the Creative and Concept Photography class. These are just pegs and ideas to go through with as depending on the resources at hand, we may have to change schedules and concepts along the way.
Supersized Portraits idea came from Photoshop wizard Cristian Girotto‘s photo series L’Enfant Extérieur (the outer child) takes his subjects’ inner children and brings them, quite literally, to the surface. In the series, Girotto explores what adults would look like if men and women never left the cuteness of infancy — at least in some respects. Each photo, originally captured by photographer Quentin Curtat, shows the subject ‘shopped to look like a toddler.
Projection Photography - this is simple enough but camera angles are very critical in achieving certain looks, and no flash (usually) can be used as it usually kills the ambient light that is projected in the subject. Sometimes 2 Projectors are used if you …
Legend has it that Pablo Picasso was sketching in the park when a bold woman approached him.
"It's you -- Picasso, the great artist! Oh, you must sketch my portrait! I insist." So Picasso agreed to sketch her. After studying her for a moment, he used a single pencil stroke to create her portrait. He handed the women his work of art.

To which Picasso responded, "Madame, it took me my entire life." ===================================
Even Picasso struggled with the same pricing issues that you face as an IP. He understood that it's the skill, the expertise, the end re…
psiphon is a censorship circumvention solution that allows users to access blocked sites in countries where the Internet is censored. psiphon turns a regular home computer into a personal, encrypted server capable of retrieving and displaying web pages anywhere.
psiphon operates through networks of trust. There are psiphon providers who install and administer a psiphon server (psiphonode) in an uncensored country, and psiphon users (psiphonites) who login and access the server from a country that censors the Internet.
How does psiphon work?
psiphon acts as a "web proxy" for authenticated psiphonites, retrieving requested web pages and displaying them in a user's browser. psiphon uses a secure, encrypted connection to receive web requests from the psiphonite to the psiphonode who then transports the results back to the psiphonite. There is no connection between the psiphonite and the requested website, as psiphon transparently proxies the request through the …
