EyePod, originally uploaded by LeggNet.

I was at Best Buy the other day and overheard the sales guy telling a desperate shopper that they were completely sold out of iPods and wouldn’t get any more in stock before Christmas. The customer was visibly upset.

This got me thinking about the growing obsession with the player and it’s increasing popularity. I wanted to find a unique way to capture the iPod. Sarah helped me out and here is one of the results.

I created this by first taking a close-up of Sarah’s right eye. I then edited the eye (adding the contrast effect) and uploaded it to the iPod. Then I set the iPod to display the EYE on the screen and had Sarah hold it up while I photographed her. The tricky part was adjusting the exposure of Sarah’s face to match the brightness of the iPod screen.
