Out of The Archives: Motion & Perspective PhotosNovember 18, 2013
It's been awhile since my last OoTA ('Out of The Archives' for those who aren't so hip to abbrevs) post and quite frankly it's because I've spent more time this semester adding work to my archives instead of pulling it out. This is a good thing, or at least that's what I'm telling myself.
I thought it might be fun to display some photo work I've been doing for my Photography I class. For our second assignment we were tasked with the topics of 'motion and perspective.' These are a few shots I chose from my final selection. These four were the ones that went best together. The way I approached this assignment was by taking the human figure and then trying to find it's abstraction in the world around me (whilst employing the ideas of motion and perspective).
The girl featured is one of my very good friends and old roommate, Caitlin. She's the best model around because she's always so open to my ideas and "visions". Through my entire art career thus far she's been a huge help. I've drawn her repeatedly for drawing classes, sought her input on sculptures that I've constructed in our living room, had her photograph me for my final projects.She took on the gracious role of model, for these moody - yet intimate shots.
She didn't hold back and didn't mind letting me take three roles of film of her. She took my directions and suggestions like a champ and didn't laugh too hard as I got into the craziest positions so that I could photograph her from interesting (read: weird) angles. Haha.
I can't wait to share a few more of my photo projects with you as we get nearer toward the end of the semester!
