We asked the creators of the humorous Aminus3 blog OurTwoSense to share a behind the scenes look at this creative project. Here is what they had to say...
We feel honored to be asked to showcase the photography and presentation style of OurTwoSense here in the footsteps of others in this series we have long admired on AM3.
Our distinction is that there are two of us to each posting - Lilly and Ronnie / Left and Right living and working 4,000 miles apart but creating one image-posting twice a week that we hope sends a smile around the world.
Lilly says :
We never really plan anything : it usually just comes to us and even we can't explain it sometimes. One of us will be out with a camera and shoot random things and send images to the other as "possibles" which the other will try match into a combined visual statement.
Ronnie does the "stitching together" because he has developed a talent for that and I can just sit back and tell him how great he is even when he is not - seems to work just fine for me! Must admit the two of us do marvel at how magically the photos can come together when sealed with the three-line dialogue : Ronnie has infused me with his great sense of humor and always brings a smile to my face when signing off our postings.
Being so far apart, we can run into technical, time and, even language issues but it always seems to work out and we make an amazing partnership. I'm lucky to be a part of O2S alongside a very creative mind !!
Ronnie says : Well, after that, I'd be silly to rattle the cage she keeps me in !
What I would add is that the Captions and Dialogue are key to the enjoyment of O2S. Cross-border humor has beaten far better men than I and we do not always manage to keep that part of the message as simple as it needs to be - will try harder.
Finally, both of us would like to thank all those followers who have taken the trouble to post some 40,000 Comments over the years. Every one is appreciated and we send out a big Thank You to All !!
