Just like yesterday I was taking one set of photographs and happened on another. I liked my other ones, but was thinking my 365 needed a macro and abstract shot since it had been a while. I plan on re-shooting the other idea at some point, once I get some more materials.
As for this shot, does any one have any guesses as to what it is?
Today was another long day for me. And it involved saying goodbye to a friend that I have been great friends with since freshman year of college, which is never an easy thing.
But, despite the busy day, I managed to sneak in a shot. Any guesses as to what it is? Perhaps if there is interest and someone gets it right they will win a print of mine?
One last thing (it is late, and I am tired, so I ramble). I entered a contest and could REALLY use your votes. All it takes is a click, you can vote once a day, and they make it so incredibly easy for you to share. So please, vote and pass it on to everyone you know!
In my studio this summer we poured a 200 pound block of plaster and then gradually chiseled away at it to carve something showing motion. I chose to do a long jumper for my piece since I was a long jumper in high school and absolutely loved it.
This project was an insane amount of work. Despite being done for a full day, my hand is still extremely sore, swollen, and I am unable to bend or straighten it all the way. I was so frustrated while working on this piece, I almost wanted to just quit. I even had an arm break off while working (which I am actually very happy that it did). However, despite how much I hated it while working, t was by far the best critique (at least most positive) I have ever had, and I think it may be my favorite piece that I have ever made (other than photographs).
