    Spooky Leaf Blower Portraits


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Photographer cassstudios1 captured these hilarious images by aiming a leaf blower at her friends as she snapped their portraits. She also used Photoshop's liquify tool to further exaggerate some of their facial features. "It was a combination of a few ideas and resources that was stewing in my brain for a while," she said. "We did have to play around with the leaf blower, fogger and lights to get the right combination. It also took us some time to figure out how to handle the intensity of the leaf blower in the face. Most folks could only handle it for a few seconds."
    - rachel8, CNN iReport producer

    Austinites- creatures of Austin texas. Funny portraits of people getting blasted with a leaf blower. Looking like this- you could be yourself for Halloween.


    To take a proper leaf blower portrait isn't as easy as it looks. One must succumb to the leaf blower- relax all your muscles in your face and do your best to keep your eyes open, make small movements, catch the wind. Which is quite the opposite of what your reflexes tell you to do.
