Camouflaged Background: The background for our camouflaged shots comes from the tactile elements on the garment included in the film (above). Photographs were taken of the textures, then cropped. Using Photoshop, we created a background that combined all of the textures. Inspired by Emma Hack, we wanted to camouflage the garment with the background; but her technique involves painting walls or canvases - which was unattainable. We could have painted on paper, but the real textures would not have been portrayed, because they do not have the same surface as what paint creates. Therefore, we used a projector to enlarge our image onto a wall. This was successful because it also projected the image onto the model's skin and so made the final shots even more camouflaged.
