Entry Description: These images were taken at an inexpensive, student New Year's Eve ball in Toronto with a Samsung SGH-j706 digital cellphone camera.
I used various overlapping built-in effects, such as different colour screens, fogging, varying the brightness/contrast, as well as external techniques such as moving the camera while taking the photo.
This all contributed to a sense of unreality and a rich, simulated, low-res atmosphere saturated with the overall feeling of isolation and melancholy that pervaded the ball.
