Default Surreal

Hi everybody, I'm new to the forums.
Wendy, turned 21 years last week, been photographing for 3 years.

OK this is not a normal portrait or something.
I kinda like to play with peoples minds, so turned the first photo upside down.
Made them with a timer.

Interesting and arty, I like it, just too dark.

Ello, I love these pictures super artsy!! I like the darkness in these, it really gives me a lot of ideas for a series of my own.

Only thing I would suggest is cropping a bit off of the top in the first and the bottom in the second. It's a lot of dark empty space, which I believe, detracts from them a little bit.


By the way, I love the avatar. Are you a deviantart stocker?

I think these are awesome concepts, but too dark...

Very interesting concept. Now the questions is, did you intend for them to be this dark, or is it the result of underexposure. If the former, then you've executed your concept well. If the latter, well, you need to work on exposure.

No I wanted them to be dark.
I made them lighter with a program,
and it takes away the whole 'weirdness' of the photo.
Lighter will make them a bit normal.

I like what I see! Any chance you have more photos stored somewhere on the internet?? Keep doing what you do.
