Featured image is part of my brainstorming list @@.
I basically started taking random photos of objects to explore my options.Objects on my tableHaving a book for breakfast.. These are petticoats for Lolita fashion which I love (and the name is irrelevant to the book by Vladimir… Nabokov ^^”) The first one is exploring blue/cyan as my favorite color, the second, the possible “eye” motif.
My beloved (but neglected @@) guitar.
The amount of bottles I keep. Obviously exploring the “eye” motif again, trying to put my hand in to explore object as an extension of self.
Boxes of valued items, and beloved CDs.
After a lot of detour and exploring I finally decided on my book theme, and above are two relevant but rejected photos from the first round of shoots.
Second round of shoots are a lot more dull and consist of more redundant photos to get the “perfect” one. But these are some of the ones from the work in progress.
Tryouts to get the hair without the face, and early composition for one of the photos.
The “books” as a journey/ pathway attempts. There’s actually quite a few things I like in this part of the exploration with my feet, but mostly it did not fit well into the series and I had to reject them.
I also really wanted to incorporate the “object as an extension of self” idea. But alas it didn’t work out, be it due to the mood of the photo or the composition or the things in the background…
… And I don’t even know what to say about this. It was weird. And difficult to take when I can’t see what I’m doing.
