Vincent van Gogh paints a modern masterpiece on a new canvas.
This photo was inspired by another project I was working on involving using a smartphone as a canvas for painting.
The setup for this photo was extremely simple.
The scene is set atop a large white sheet of paper unspooling from above and behind. My iPhone is the canvas.
Above the scene (and not shown) is a large circular diffuser that softens the ambient light in the room.
Initially I tried not to “crop” the painting in the iPhone, but I thought the dark regions to the left and right were distracting.
Vincent has also been spotted working in these places:
Have you seen this photo somewhere else? Or are you using it yourself? I would love to hear from you! It's always fun to learn where my photos turn up.
