You can put a plastic bag over your lens and create fascinating images.
You know long before photoshop was invented photographers were always manipulating images - right from the very early days montage, HDR printing, camera trickery, double exposures all those tricks were in place.
For this set I went back to one of the simplest and oldest tricks, smearing the lens. Traditionally you would smear vaseline over a plain glass filter, but in this case I went the really easy way. A plastic bag with a hole in it.
All it does is screw up the optics and gives you out of focus and soft areas of the image.
The hole let's you find a sharp point.
You can also do the same trick with bubble wrap - especially against a dark background you can get some wonderful bokeh light effects from the edges of the bubbles.
I used the same technique in two shoots recently. Harriett and Leah responded to the plastic bag with a "Cool - let's do it". The second responded with a "WTF?" - guess which ones I will work with again - and which ones will never darken my door :)
