Could've Been Bike Shorts...

Recommended Posts

"You could always make bike shorts if your idea doesn't work out."

To the nice arts and craft store lady who sold me a couple yards of Spandex: Thanks for not tripping out when I showed you some weird reference images and then asked me to come back later show what I ended up making.



I'd been looking for a way to reproduce in camera some ghostly looking reference images I'd squirreled away. The internet told me I'd need to shoot through some kind of transparent layer so I started experimenting with different types of plastic diffusion and fabrics. I was looking for something translucent and would look interesting on camera when you touched it. Fairly certain I'm late to the cool-kid's party, but turns out shooting through backlit white Spandex fabric made an interesting thing. All the footage used in the edit is straight out of camera; No color correction, grading, etc.


There's a bit more of a breakdown and more stills over at the blog if you're up to check that out - tannerherriott.com/blog/2018/6/25/spandex
