Mental Health Day 2020

How this photo came about:

A while ago I was listening (ok dancing all by myself at home!) to Dua Lipa’s Physical and the intro of the song sounded familiar.

I dug a little and found (again) French artist Therapie TAXI and their song J’en ai marre. After listening to the catchy song several time, I was wondering what they were really talking about (on the first pass you might think they are talking about a partner but in fact it was about their alter ego).

I wanted to do one of my Multiple Photo  and the primary colors of the Physical video gave me an idea. So here’s what came out of my brain: a Multiple with a twist.

Edit: J’en ai marre lyrics translated in English and Dua Lipa’s Physical Video

A couple weekends ago I posted a picture of what my Saturday night looked like… well after the behind the scene here’s the results.

Another example of my “Me, Myself and I” series.

Saturday night shenanigans.

Some people enjoy rooftop cocktails, my happy place last night was my underground garage so the crazy idea I had in my head could come to life…. stay tuned 😉

Little by little a simile kind of normal life is creeping back.

We can meet again by group of 5.

My only concern now is I might not win at mahjong as often.

Three years ago for the start of Spring I had done one of my Multiple picture: Lounging by the pool, pondering on the fact that “I survived Winter in Singapore… Not sure I’ll survive Spring & Summer !!” (Here)

I felt like I needed to update it with our new normal: Social Distancing 😉 

NB… Not sure if the first ‘image’ is a video (hence WordPress reader might not see it) or a GIF.

In case you are interested, other images in my “Multiple” series are here

Military grade planning is key.

Milking that IWD photo for all the content I can get out of it 😜

Everything has to be in place and coordinated before the actually pictures were taken. Because I don’t work with light equipment but with natural light, the whole photographing part needs to be fast or the light changes too much and the post processing takes too long.

I also had to make sure that I was positioned at the exact same place to make sure the different part of my body were all aligned, again to make the post processing “easier”.

While the conceptualisation, photography and post processing was done in under 5 hours, it took years of trials and errors to make it appear easy ;-).

Just like you need to have a top notch expensive camera to take good photos, you need to have excellent and exquisite drawing skills to conceptualize the crazy ideas you have in your mind. Case in point 🙄

And in case you’ve missed the post… I look exactly like the figurine. You can see it for yourself here

Creativity is messy.

Fun fact:
A drop of weak tea in sparking water can pass as champagne.
Water and grenadine syrup can pass for red wine
Mix it with the “Champagne” above and you get rose/white wine.

Also note to self: keep a bottle of white wine and red wine in addition to the champagne bottle you’ve already saved as a prop. ;-).
