    Photographic Cubism

    Interesting contest over on facebook http://www.facebook.com/#!/notes/isl...45496162146925

    Can you create a cubist image with your camera. To make it tougher, do it in one shot!

    I would imagine this could be done with multiple exposures, masking parts of the lens, prism filters, and mirrors.

    On a side note, I got to see the linked facebook picture of Picasso's cubist Vollard at the Met awhile ago during a show dedicated to Vollard and the various works he collected/dealt. Pretty cool in person.

    I agree that multiple exposures could work. There is nothing like the real thing and seeing a real Picasso would be a treat!

    Glass Door Abstract, Asahi Pentax Spotmatic F

    I use our glass front door for some interesting 'test shots' when I get a new camera -- the light comes through better around 4 pm -- here is my latest photo taken on my 'gift' ASAHI PENTAX SPOTMATIC F using my own 1970's 50mm f4 SMC Macro-Takumar and some 2005 outdated Kodak Ultra 400 film I rated at 250 ASA -- the colours are my wife's Geranium flowers !

    Weegee got Picasso himself to sit for a portrait using special-effects lenses of his own design:

    I used to know a guy in a camera club I was in who worked in a glass factory who took amazing colour cubist images of large lumps of glass clinker he got from the bottom of the furnaces he photographed them in polarized light produced buy putting polarized gels over a couple of photographic lamps and shining the lights through the glass.
