Decide on what to shoot and explain why you shot it and what you were looking for when you composed the shot.


With this photo, I wanted to try my hand at creating a 3D stereoscopic effect, or put simply, stitching images of the subject at different points to create depth or motion in your final composition. I loved the colors and the patterns of the subject’s outfit and knew the inhaling/exhaling of smoke would create a great effect. The added motion of flicking the cigarette and falling ashes was a plus! Not bad for a first go, but moving forward, I’d work on keeping one axis steady while moving along the other axis, to prevent the sort of “warping” in the background of the image.
