After deciding on the usage of juxaposition in my equation, I drew up many sketches to showcase this aspect, and as seen above, you are able to tell that may thoughts have been put into this.
While sketching these, I felt that I was able to portray these expression better in the case of editing my real face and changing reality through this process.
With my home having a available home studio, I was able to take professional looking images with the good equipments and wonderful lighting. This made my final pieces to have a good constant look and is not patchy or unprofessional looking. The clean background also made my life so much easier when I was editing the image and changing the colours to include the colour theories that we have been imparted.
Experimentations on surrealism
With the photos taken, I then took to account of the style of edits that I had researched and referenced from to create these few images. These are the ones that did not make the cut as I feel they were either not clear in the explaination, was serving no purpose to the equations, or could be improved even further which was then included into the final pieces.
EXPLAINATION OF EACH PIECE INTROVERTION / SHYNESS Using the tearing of paper to reveal my face to showcase me hiding behind something and also the colour blue emphasis the mood here of being calm and collected. FORGETFULNESS (GOLDFISH BRAIN) The goldfish have always been associated with being a creature with a really bad memory. The showing of it eating bits of my "brain" off helps heighten the explaination. Been forgetting stuff lately, blame this bugger! SERENITY WITHIN ONESELF (ME) The silhouette of me breaking through the paper and going into a "goldfish undersea aquairium" shows the calmness and tranquility I have in being me. STRESS OVERLOAD The juxaposition usage of a kettle in the form of my head emphasis the feeling of overheating/ boiling which symbolises and show the stress I put myself into sometimes. The redness definitely adds on the the whole feel of the image. TOXIC THOUGHTS (DOUBTING MYSELF) As gory as it looks, I wanted to have a powerful impact on this situation & to have both blood and toxic waste to be spilling out of my head to show the expelling of these evil thoughts! FRESH NEW IDEAS (A BETTER ME) Here I again use the juxaposition method with the lightbulb in the form of my head an vice-versa. this creates an interesting look and is also a fun way to have this meaning made. REALNESS (BOTH IN AND OUT OF TECHNOLOGY) I used this method of having half my face to be of the phone while the other to be the real me to show that they are both same and that realness is what I want to portray as an individual. SAVING TIME / TIMELY PERSON Me holding time; my watch, and having a halo above my head to symbolise this matter. Me looking down with a look of grace comically helps to show this reasoning of the image I created. ILLUSION (THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS AN IDEAL PERSON) Challenging the brief, I created this image that is interesting and provoking at the same time. HARDWORK / GRINDING MY SKILLS This form of levitation of the adobe icons being crammed up into my head shows that I am trying to learn them all, but it is with difficulties. but with hardwork, all is possible. SHORT-SIGHTEDNESS / BELITTLING MYSELF Adding a fun and punny explaination of this equation, it shows me struggling with my sight and also being shorter, both which adds up to it. I feel this this is a interesting outlook of the depressing sentence. ADOBE SOFTWARE GENIUS (ME IN 5 YEARS) With my head being opened out like a book, something associated with knowledge, I have pieces of pages containing the icons of adobe softwares to have a nice dynamic to this final answer!
