52Frames – 2021-40 – Dreamscape

The theme for this week’s 52Frames was “Dreamscape”, with an extra credit for “Nightmare”. I was fairly uninspired, until I saw on the window Pierre’s DOOM plush toys, and went “mmmmh.”

The idea I went with was to try and get these two evil blobs in some kind of corridor, and I was thinking initially of slapping a green filter on it and be done, mostly. I fetched a box in the basement (we happened to have a box of a very good size for my purposes!), and opening the back felt like it was giving me the feeling of DOOM walls, so I kept it that way. I lit the image with a green lume cube, and used one of the other sides of the box as a barn door to get a shadow, again reminiscing of how I remember the lights in DOOM (not necessarily the color, but the angles). For the record, this was the SOOC picture:

I did a few fixes to make the box sliiightly less obvious; I also played with the “wave” filter in Photoshop, because that felt appropriate for the theme. And, while I’ve been grumbling a lot about the theme this week, I actually like that picture a lot – it makes me smile! 🙂
