I took this series of 4 photographs of my daughter about 3 years ago. I've always wanted to create 4 scratchboards from these and really challenge myself to replicate the amazing depth of field and resulting bokeh. And challenging it was. In fact, I did a terrible job.
I was hoping this would be the first of a new collection. But alas, I don't have much desire to continue with this series. Oh well. You win some, you lose some. I WAS, however, able to capture an amazing video from my failed attempt.
Another thing I've always wanted to do was film myself creating a scratchboard and then play it back in reverse, ending with a single line.
So that's what I did! And thank goodness I love the video more than I hate the scratchboard.
