This easter semester I went to the movies and saw a film that made a huge impression on me. “ Le Scaphandre et le papillon” (“The diving bell and butterfly” in English), a French film by Julian Schnabel. It’s the true story of Elle editor Jean-Dominique Bauby who suffers a stroke and has to live with an almost totally paralyzed body; only his left eye isn’t paralyzed. (imdb.com) The first part of the film is shot from Bauby’s point of view, and starts with him waking up at the hospital and realizing that he is totally paralyzed. We share his thoughts and see the world through his eyes; an effect that almost makes the spectators feeling paralyzed themselves. The cinematography is beautifully done, and the actors are great. A must see film!

I’m moving in 5 days, and have started to put my room into thousands of boxes and bags. So therefore, todays’ blog will be dedicated to my bedroom in Eiganesveien 13, Stavanger. I will never forget this year. Je t’adore pour toujours.
I’ve played a little with the different effects in photoshop, using a picture I took at Vega. It’s really fun! And here are the results:
– The original picture, only adjusted with auto levels
– Photo filter deep yellow
– Photo filter underwater
– Stylize, diffuse
– Dark strokes
– Halftone pattern
– Diffuse glow
