Hello this is a blog post about the Orgone Infinity Concept Shoot, it is composed of a Citrine sphere stone, a Pyramid Orgone and two mirrors. The basic idea is to just create an infinite look or evoke and expansive feeling when you see the photograph, seeing the artwork behind orgone items I figured this will be a cool blog post.
CAMERA AND LENS
I will use a Nikon Entry level 3500 camera for this one, a low budget concept shoot for the website. Lenses I used are 11 – 50mm AF-P and 70 – 300mm AF P kit lenses. The two lens usually is with the d3500 camera as a package. AF-P lenses has good AF response and focusing system.
FIGURING IT OUT
The basic idea was in my head due to going to barber shops. As a kid it is amusing seeing an infinity effect on a face to face mirror, you see multiple versions of the same thing it is trance inducing while getting a haircut, experiencing that made it memorable. I decided to create something of that nature and used the orgone pyramids I bought months ago. I placed it in a pattern like manner and took a photo. It looks good now lets duplicate this and make this like a sea of orgone pyramids.
First problem I had is how do I take a photo of the infinity when my camera is too big. If I buy a big mirror that would be really expensive. Taking the photo with a camera on the right or left side to be erased in photo editing was an option but doing it seems hard. I can’t fit the camera inside the frame and the only camera I have that is small is the Nikon sb5100 point and shoot. My phone was an option but its quality is not that good in my mind.
NOT ENOUGH MINERALS
Not having enough money to buy a micro camera (go-pros) or even do the amount of work necessary to materialize my imagination I decided to work around the subject by changing angles taking sample photos making the most of what I can capture just to get a feel on what will be possible and what approaches could work.
Camera placement and angles was explored, sometimes adapting to the condition is a better option than buying your way into a desired situation. Film making made me realize that quick.
TAKING THE PHOTOS
Doing my thinking for a couple of days before doing my formal shoot and concept I decided to slack and just have fun doing the shoot, it took me a couple of hours to finish my shot by just taking multiple focused exposures and using the infinity concept as a peripheral rather than my main focus. Taking good photos over obsessing with the idea. I still managed to get some infinity effects on camera but I will not publish all of it in this website.
