Cool Face Painting Techniques Feature 2D Illusion in Photos

A while back, we featured several works on how painting recreates photography, and vice versa. Well, you can add this one to that list. These 2D-looking photos show the illusion of how a brush stroke of paint and make-up can conceal things and deceive the eyes.

Photographer Alexander Khokhlov along with make-up artist Valeriya Kutsan bring us these amazing 2D looking photographs of models with painted faces that recreate modern pop art. The wearable art form on the models’ faces feature several familiar art designs like those seen on comic books and the Shepard Fairey poster featuring U.S. President Barack Obama’s face. Kutsan used different face painting techniques to achieve the different modern art references for the photographs.

One of the most notable shots is the one featuring a comic book-inspired character. The face painting is complete with the halftone dot effects and the bold black strokes for the model’s face outline. Face painting was used to create a flat image to hide the relative 3D look of the models.

Photography and painting blended seamlessly in these photographs and the results are eye-catching to say the least. To see more of the photographs from Khokhlov’s site, click here. You can also go to Kutsan’s site here to see some of her other make-up and face painting work.

Fujifilm Continues Discontinuation Streak With Superia 400 120 and Reala 120

Fujifilm Continues Discontinuation Streak With Superia 400 120 and Reala 120

Just when we’ve thought the worse is over, an update regarding Fujifilm’s further discontinuation of its film came up a little late last week.

 

 

Last Monday saw the news of Fujifilm’s confirmation to discontinue the Provia 400X and Neopan 400 film.

Unfortunately, it appears that the sad news does not stop there – according to the report made by the British Journal of Photography, Fujifilm has also confirmed that it has ceased production of two of its 120 film variants, namely Superia 400 and Reala.

“Due to the prominence that digital has in today’s society combined with a decline in global demand of traditional films, Fujifilm has had to make a difficult decision to withdraw a number of films from its range. […] We would also like to thank all our customers who have supported these film brands over the years.” — Gabriel Da Costa (Product Manager for professional film, Fujifilm) via the British Journal of Photography

Oh, say it isn’t so!
