Week 10: Dreamy

When I read about "prisming" on Sam Hurd's blog (check it out, he's one cool wedding photographer) I knew I had to give it a try. Mainly, because I like rainbows and gadgets (fair enough, prism isn't really a gadget, but never mind). So when my prism arrived in mail I was eager to try it out. It seemed like a good idea to use it for this week's project, because what's more dreamy than unicorns and rainbows?!

It was super windy on the terrace, the unicorn went down... rainbows seem to be more wind resistant.

My good friend Aino made me these worry dolls. I asked for a unicorn, so yes that green thing is a unicorn. She's super talented and I think her handwork is dreamy enough to get featured here today.

Some pretty girly stuff I love - pearls, a little Chanel and fashion magazines (for their photography and inspiration, I don't get a new wardrobe every season; just so you know ;)).

I miss biking (but it has been too rainy and cold and/or I have been ill).

Sometimes the world is just totally dreamy. Must admit there's a fine line between dreamy and crazy psychedelic.

So, what can I say. I really do like this prisming technique. I think with time and tons of practice I could use it for some really cool effects. And sometimes all we need in life are little twists and turns and dreamy touches. 

Have a wonderful Sunday afternoon!

  1. This looks like a fun experiment! I remember playing with prisms in about 2nd grade, and this kind of makes me want to find one!

    1. I think we never had prisms in school, only pics in textbooks, so I felt double-excited now. Definitely fun.

  4. Oh this looks like fun! I've never tried it, but I'm all about dreamy rainbows and pretty things. :) Reminds me that my grandmother used to have a glass or crystal piece from a chandelier hanging in her window and it would make pretty prisms on the walls and ceiling at different times of day. As a little girl, it was mesmerizing to just lay on the floor and watch the light.

    1. There are all kinds of different surfaces that reflect fun light, I used to love all those reflections as a kid. I wonder how come I didn't think of it myself to try to incorporate them in photos. Surely a way to add fun dreamy touch. :)
