an interesting effect with no photoshop!
As inspired by the work of John French, last week a had a little go at a projection photo shoot.
The basic idea is that you use a projector (like you find in school or college) to project an image onto the body of a model.
You can then photograph this, and get an interesting effect without using photoshop!

    Next you need to think about your set. You will need a plain solid background, and your model will need to wear something to match their body colour or the set. I chose a black curtain, and asked my model to wear a long sleeved black top.

    Set up your projector and you're ready to go!
    You can experiment with images and angles to give completely different effects.
