2/28 – We got a little bit of an ice storm last night, and our power went out as soon as I walked in the door after getting home from work. It ended up being extremely nice having a night off from my computer and electronics in general. If it wasn’t for my 365 I would probably try to make it a regular thing.
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.
Once again, I had something in mind and it just didn’t work out so I improvised and came up with this. It still conveys a similar idea, so I am happy about that. And I still plan on trying my original idea at some point, I just have some planning to do first, so be on the look out for that! And, I just realized that I did two night shots in a row, oops.
One last quick note. My self-portraits are generally speaking very personal, and have a lot of meaning for me. But I always wonder if that meaning is comes across through the image, or if it is just in my mind that it works. So I am curious to hear some thoughts on my self-portraits and what you think they could mean or represent; please share!
