OST (Open Shutter Technique)

As of July, 2017 I have changed the way I create with a camera. I no longer think of a photo as a brief moment, but instead think of the camera as a canvas where time to paint with light is practically limitless. This has allowed me to create the impossible. All OST photos are single exposure with no layering or compositing, created in the moment.


November, 2018*: API (Anthropomorphic Photo Illustration) is an OST in which a photograph is "painted" using the human body as the brush. An "analogue" technique.


IM/ICM (Intentional Movement/Intentional Camera Movement) Is when the camera and/or subject are moved to create different effects - a painterly look in my case - and is used widely throughout my work.


November, 2018*: MLI (Multi Location Imaging) is an OST in which one imprints separate scenes from different locations on the camera sensor. One common use for this technique is to place people/objects in impossible locations.

* - The date I discovered this technique.

** - MPP can be used without OST, though it isn't usually advantageous to do so.
