Folks at 100% Stuck In Plastic have started this year to propose photo challenges and I decided to follow them on their adventure.
Here is the result of the second challenge “can photograph tell the truth”. I doubt photos can really tell the “truth” or be objective because they’re always taken from a specific point of view. Moreover I’m not interested in telling the truth with my photography.
The only way I found to “tell the truth” was to take a picture of myself. After having received the LEGO WALL-E model and having built it, I was in a hurry taking some photos. However it appeared to be harder than I initially imagined: on each photo there were some disgraceful reflections in the eyes of WALL-E. Sometimes these reflections included me. I fixed this by editing the reflections to make it look natural.
By doing this I was definitely not telling the truth, so I decided to take more photos of WALL-E and this time without trying to hide reality.
On the other hand while taking these “objective” photos I also achieved to take some improved photos of the ones that are “not telling the truth”.
