Altitude Survey by Synthetamine
Altitude Survey
.

Still choosing surreal photography for this series because its mostly about the compositional aspects and interaction with the model and toy airship, than the techniques used to burn the cloud layers in, during post production.

I am trying to refine this concept

Hello, I really want to refine this concept

Sighting of deity by Synthetamine

the image of the airship and model are one photograph. the clouds are a different photograph

the challenge has been replicating the depth of field in the image of the model, into the image of the clouds.

It is surreal to replicate using the physics of cameras as this situation would never happen, there is no way to take a picture of a toy airship 30,000 feet in the air with this kind of depth of field. So it is hard to imagine what the clouds would look like outside the range of focus.

For aesthetics, should the clouds actually be moved (broken up into tinier clouds/air pieces/condensation streams), where the model's hand and arm is moving through them?

Should there be other disconnected clouds to make it more apparent they are clouds

or any other consideration, such as whats wrong with the concept, lighting, or anything.

Thanks for your honesty and for looking!
I acquired a muse, a model I met during my travels. I always imagined doing something like this, looking at the creative flexibility of other artists who have had a model to create with on a whim. Trying to replicate that flexibility leads to a dilemma with scheduling that is very cumbersome, the time expense of scheduling and rescheduling is greater than the cost of any contract I can negotiate with a potential subject. This contract is voluntary servitude to my creative interests, for a limited time.

The better option is to have one or two subjects, perpetually in your presence. This is the outcome I crafted.

Its interesting to think that I had almost attempted something like this nearly four years ago, with a new model in a rural town I almost moved to, for commerce. It makes me wonder if I would have been able to use her body like a marionette, or if she would have been able to resign her autonomy and cultural inhibitions as much I required for my creative interests. My subjects exist within a distortion field, a distorted reality I perpetuate that ignores cultural and socioeconomic problems in the outside world, because I maintain an exemption to them. So it makes me wonder sometimes how my contract with that girl would have played out.

Now in the present, I do have a muse. And I've had her on a schedule since the beginning of summer. Finally, she is beginning to inspire me in a way I imagined. 

For my projects, I needed her for her body, but it turns out she has a creative mind. Relevant thoughts have actually been an anomaly amongst models that I've worked with, very similar to a stereotype, as models are not booked for their minds and other people take care of their necessities. Her creative assistance has been a good and unexpected quality. I'm thrilled that after many shoots I am actually inspired by our various shenanigans.

Was playing around with my muse yesterday, she comes over once a week. I want to do more of these after I refine the presentation. It took a lot of concentration for her to keep the airship model suspended in the air, we don't practice that ability often.

Airship designed by merimask , I've had it for years
