My friend, Julia (see some of her shots), said we should try some shots with a projector. What? I had no idea what she meant, but I tracked down a projector and away we went. I really had no idea what to expect until everything was set up in a dark room...
NOTE --these were NOT Photoshopped! The colours and strange effects look very much like they could have been created a la 'shop, but they were not. All the strange colours, shadows, textures, and images were created by the projector.
The projector I found actually had a 'burn' in the centre of it (it was discarded due to this problem). That burn actually added a little bit of discolouration to the photos, on top of the projected image. Neat effect.
As you might guess, white balance was a nightmare. I abandoned all presets and set it in Kelvin as close as I could, and then just went with it from there. The discolouration from the projector combined with the images and slightly-off WB gave it some "personality".
Projected images and textures do not belong to me and were found via Google images.
There will be a "Projection Part II" coming next week! Stay tuned!

Once I have some more time, I'll make a new one for this blog.
