Mary Bel's picture

My Tribe

This is a self portrait, dedicated to those who support me and support my art. The hands are mine, and so is the body. I shot this on a black background, while laying down on the floor. The camera was on a tripod, with a self timer. The hands I shot individually against a black background. For some hands, I held a pillow in a black pillow case. This way, I can easily mask my hands out, and composite them underneath me.

Love the concept and the shot. The work that has gone into the creation gives it greater substance to my mind.

Hi Mary. Am relatively new to this side of photography. Yet now understand and appreciate the meaning of "making" image for such art as well.

Amazing work of story telling and all technical aspects of achieving it. thanks

Vijay, thats very kind of you to say. I hope it inspires other photographers to think out of the box.
