When it came time to shoot today’s picture I wanted something that would represent my day. Most days I don’t really care if my image sums up my day, but today I did. There were two main things I was trying to represent, but couldn’t figure out how to get both things across in one picture, or how to create an interesting picture of just one of them. I shot them separately, and wasn’t in love with them so I decided to combine them and ended up liking the result.
So, today is a pretty personal image, more for me than anything else.
I have had this idea in my head for quite a while, and finally got around to it.
I seem to be stuck on flames at the moment for some reason. I really want to incorporate these into a self-portrait at some point, but I’m not quite sure how yet.
This is where I spent my night, and will be spending most of my weekend. Between printing stuff for critique and getting thing mats ready I will be in studio almost constantly over the weekend, and pictures for this project may suffer because of it.
In hopes of finding some sort of grand inspiration for my project for the semester I went out driving this morning. I ended up in Paris, Kentucky for a little bit, and found this abandoned train station. At least that is what I assumed it was.
I didn’t really figure out anything in terms of a concept for my project, but I got some good, non-conceptual pictures which is better than nothing I suppose.
The title of this is somewhat ironic for me right now, since not much is clear at the moment. With my critique coming up in less than a week I decided tonight that I am scrapping my originally idea and starting from nothing. I have no clue what to do for my project, and it has been wearing down on me all day. Which is why I have yet another simple, night-time candle shot. Tomorrow I am getting up early to drive around and just shoot in hopes of finding inspiration, so at the very least I will have something different for my 365.
Today was a such a long day. I was pretty much running from one thing to the next, and so I am just now having time to deal with my 365. And the scary thing is that every day this week is going to be like this and worse. My 365 may be lacking creativity and effort for the next week because of it, so bear with.
