52Frames – 2021-32 – Line from a Song

A couple of wooden manikins dancing. They are shown three times in the image (past, present, future; past and future are smaller and fainter); a banner of hearts at the bottom of the image symbolizes the passing of time.

The theme for this week’s 52Frames is a (as far as I remember) yearly favorite (I’ve done it at least once in the past 🙂 ) – “Line from a Song”. There’s technically a generator (and the associated “extra credit” if you take the first sentence from the generator), but this time around I was listening to Leonard Cohen’s Dance Me to the End of Love, and I thought I could do something neat with that. I pretty much had the image in my mind already; I’m not sure it completely matches what I envisioned, but I think it’s actually pretty close.

This picture is a composite of four photographies – the three of the manikins dancing, and the banner (which I made with paper and a marker 😉 ). It took me a while to get “good enough” image cutting (I just ordered a green screen. This should help future endeavors. Hopefully.), and then I played with opacities and whatnot to finally get the image above.
