Lens Flares is the most simple of projects. It is simply created in Photoshop by placing a lens flare on a pure black space. Our goal to was to create something completely within the program. The revolution of digital photography seems to be in its ability to alter the image after the fact. We do so little post-production at the studio that we thought we were missing something. Of course this project is not really post production but production itself and maybe not so different than making photograms. We are pleased to report that when we gave a lecture at a friend’s class at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago that we were asked whether we created the Lens Flare at night or in a studio. The artist book version of this project is full bleed and it captures some kind of cosmic infinity that we really enjoy.
