Upside down

“Upside down ” by Mathias Koehler
Both passes combined together. The background is blured. There is also somd DoF on the fly pass. This helps to direct the focus to the flys head. I spend a lot of time finding the right camera position. This is important for a good composition. Since the head should be the focal point, I searched for lines the that can guide the viewers eye to the head.

This is the final piece. I’ve added some lens distortion and decided to mirror the image. It might be just personal preference, but I think it does support the composition even more.In the western hemisphere, everyone is used to read from left to the right. And I guess this is true for looking at pictures as well. So in this case, the viewers eyes are entering the picture from the left and are guided directly to the flys head.

Head close-up, cropped from the high resolution image I worked with.

I hope you enjoyed this making-of. If you have further questions, don’t hesitate to contact me.
